Another great night of racing action is complete at the 411 Motor Speedway, and the racing was fast and furious on one of the best track surfaces ever seen at the speedway! Mini Stock was the first feature, where Rocky McNabb took the win. Next was Topless Modified, where Eric Hux flexed his powerful muscles to blast off to the win. Robbie Sands hit the afterburners in Classic to take the win. David Miley would win in Thunder & Lightning. Raymond Shepard was the class of the Street Stock field–for the first 7 laps, until mechanical trouble handed the win to Dale Watson. Rounding out the night was fast qualifier Cory Hedgecock taking the win. Jason Manley finished up 2nd and lodged a protest. Hedgecock accepted the protest, and track officials impounded the motor, which was inspected on Monday evening and declared legal..
Join us for another great Saturday night of racing this Saturday May 18th! Pit/Tier gates will open at 3, grandstand gates will open at 4, with the drivers meeting at 6. See you Saturday!
The USCS Sprint Car Series invaded the 411 Motor Speedway on Friday night for a great night of racing excitement. The first feature on the speedway was the Mini Stock division as Rocky McNabb took the win. Next was Mod Lite as they made their first-ever trip to 411 Motor Speedway. Jackson Griffith ‘smoked’ the field. Next was Thunder & Lightning, where David Miley took the win. Next up was the USCS 600cc Sprints, where it was Chris Openshaw taking the win. Limited Late Models were up next, where Rusty Ballenger was holding off several challenges from Matt Henderson, until Henderson would drop fluid, causing an 7-car pileup in turn 1. This shook the running order up, but Ballenger held off Josh Henry to take the win after the time limit expired on lap 17. The final feature of the night was the USCS 360 Outlaw Sprints, where this feature was too cut short by the Sevier County Sheriff’s Department on lap 15, where Dalton Davis would take the win.
We’re back to regular weekly points racing this Saturday May 11th. It’ll be another great night, so be sure to make your plans to enjoy the action!
Seymour, Tennessee – April 28th, 2013 – The cars and the stars of the United Sprint Car Series (USCS) is set to roll into “Tennessee’s Action Track”, 411 Motor Speedway, this Friday May 3rd. In competition this Friday will be the USCS 360 Sprints and the 600 Micro Sprints. Fans were treated to a fantastic show last season when the series was in town on Saturday May 5th, 2012. It was a dogfight for the win between Bobby Zaiontz and Chris Openshaw in the Micro Sprints, where Zaiontz would come out on top. In the 360 Sprints, race leader Tim Crawley would work lap traffic through the middle stage of the 360 feature, but it was Jerod Roller who rolled to the feature win. The most recent event for the USCS series was at Duck River on April 20th, where Derek Hagar set a new track record with a blazing lap of 10.943.

Mother nature has socked us good today with no signs of letting up, so track officials have canceled today’s program. Don’t forget, USCS Sprints will be in the house THIS FRIDAY!!
The next few weeks, all classes must go through a SAFETY INSPECTION before you will be allowed on the track for hotlaps, qualifying, or racing. All safety components will be inspected, especially painted driveshafts and lead weights. It might be wise to bring a can of white paint with you. If they’re dirty and can’t be seen, they need to be repainted. Also, you’ll need to bring your helmet, driver suit, shoes, gloves, and raceceiver for inspection. Seat belts are a maximum of 3 years old. Driveshaft loops, battery boxes, and fuel cells will be checked for proper installation, along with any other safety rules. This week, if you don’t have a WORKING raceceiver, you will NOT be allowed to race. You will be asked to respond while on the track and if you don’t have one, you will be removed from the track. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Make plans to get there early enough to be inspected. Race cars will be inspected and MUST pass before you’re allowed on the track.
So go ahead and prepare yourselves and everything will be ok. I’m giving you a heads up now so there is no reason you shouldn’t pass. This is your safety and the safety of others. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Dates of inspections:
April 27th: Limited Late Model and Topless Modified
May 11th: Thunder & Lightning and Street Stock
May 18th: Classic, Mini Stock, and Junior Hornets
Thank you for your time and cooperation, and we’ll see you early on these dates!

Another great night of racing is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track, and the action was breathtaking in two divisions on a cool Saturday night! First on the track was the Mini Stock, where David Singleton, Tommy Metler, and Rocky McNabb were your top 3, all nose-to-tail on the final lap, but contact between McNabb and Metler would send Metler around into 3, allowing Singleton to skate away with the win. Next was Topless Modified, where Kevin Lewis would score his first-ever feature win. Classic was the next division, where Bart Baxter and Marvin Ray battled back and forth the final 10 laps side-by-side for the win, with Baxter coming out on top. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer and David Miley were the ones to fight for the lead early, but Comer would eventually pull away to claim the win. In Street Stock action, Dale Watson made his return to victory lane, and rounding out the night was the Limited Late Model, where Adam Beeler snatched the lead away early from Cory Hedgecock and never looked back.
Join us this Saturday night as we host Championship Points Race #4! All 7 divisions are on the card, however so far this year we haven’t had any cars show up in Junior Hornet except for the first night. So if you have a Junior Hornet, come on to the track and tell all your friends! The Mini Stock, Junior Hornet, Topless Modified, Classic, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, and Limited Late Model divisions are on the card.
Per their Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/liveactionmotorsports), Live Action Motorsports and the “Turtleman” will be in the house at 411 Motor Speedway on Saturday April 20th! So answer the “Call of the Wildman” and come join us and see their team in action! They’ll also have their souvenir trailer at the track so you can catch your Turtleman gear!
Another great Saturday night of action is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track! It was a great night for racing as the weather was A+++! First onto the speedway was the Mini Stock, where Keith Sands would take the lead and never look back, scoring the win. In Topless Modified, William Hux held off the field to claim the checkers. In Classic, “Rocket” Robbie Sands blasted to the win. Thunder & Lightning was up next where Robbie Comer took the win, finally shaking the monkey off his back. In Street Stock, Dwayne Fox would take the win, and rounding out the night was the Limited Late Model, where Cory Hedgecock would set on the pole after being the fast time qualifier. He would show the way until lap 24 when he would have trouble getting around a lap car and bounced off the turn 2 wall, cutting a tire down. Jason Cardwell would find himself in the lead after the caution flew — for the 2nd time this season — cruising to the win due to the misfortune of the race leader late in the features! And this is definitely not to discredit Jason, but he’s been on the receiving end of the bad luck stick a lot the past couple years.
Join us this Saturday April 20th as we bring you another exciting night of racing action! All divisions will be racing, which consist of Mini Stock, Junior Hornet, Topless Modified, Classic, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, and Limited Late Model!
This past Saturday night was a mixed bag of excitement at Tennessee’s Action Track! 22 cars would sign into the Mini Stock division, and all 22 would start the feature. Amazingly, they would go all 20 laps caution-free with Rocky McNabb taking the win! Next was the Topless Modified division, where fireworks would fly off turn 2 on lap 17 when Eric Hux and Tim Weaver got together, ending both their nights, handing the lead to Johnny Ridings. He would hang on with two front broken shocks to take the win. Next was the Classic, where Scott Lacy would take the win. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer was showing the way — and showing smoke — until officials issued the black flag for oil, handing the lead over to David Miley. He’d cruise to the win. The next feature was the Street Stock division, where Dwayne Fox would take the checkers. The final feature of the night would prove to be a fan favorite as fireworks flew early and often, including tempers! Rusty Ballenger would set fast time with a lap of 13.892 in qualifying. Things would get off to a bumpy start as the first caution flew with Ryan King going around after slight contact from Greg Martin. King would look for a way through the field disagreeing with the call. King would be running 3rd when perhaps the most controversial caution — the 5th of the night — flew on lap 12 when Jason Cardwell would look for his way around a lap car, when Ballenger would drive deep into turn 3 and make heavy contact with Cardwell. Cardwell would retire for the night with suspension damage, and Ballenger would hit the hot pits for a tire change. This handed the lead over to King. By lap 25, the 10th caution of the night would fly when Keith Gregory would drop fluid heading up high into turn 3. King would show the way with the caution displayed, but would run into the fluid and spin out, cutting a left-rear tire when he bounced off the wall. He would again re-join the field at the rear, and blast his way up close to the front when the final caution of the night flew on lap 29. Many fans were puzzled with this caution, as Layne Clifton would show the way into turn 1 as the leader, but drove too deep and would pound the outside wall. Ballenger would take the low side but he would also go around. Many fans thought this would hand the lead over to King, but caution was thrown for Clifton, giving Ballenger a mulligan. Ballenger would hold off King over the final restart to take the win.
Coming up next week is a DOUBLE points night for the competitors! Be sure to join us for another great night of action-packed excitement under the lights at the 411 Motor Speedway! Same time, same classes, same place! See you all on Saturday!
