Another action-packed night of racing is complete at Tennessee’s Action Track! This time, the ULTIMATE Super Late Models were in town for an ULTIMATE show! Beginning the night, David Crabtree would set fast time in NeSmith Crates with a lap of 14.397. Then, Chad Ogle would set fast time in the ULTIMATE Supers with a lap of 13.802. The first feature of the night was Mini Stock, where David Singleton would power from the rear to steal the lead on lap 3 and never look back, claiming his 4th win in a row. Next up was the NeSmith Crates. David Crabtree set sail early to claim the win, but 2nd place was hotly contested as Josh Henry and Ryan King went door-to-door over much of the feature, with Henry prevailing for the 2nd position. Next up was the Modified Mini, where Tim Ladd cruised to the win, and in the ULTIMATE Supers, Billy “The Kid” Ogle, Jr. and Chad Ogle would swap the lead back and forth over the first 2 restarts, ultimately (no pun intended), The Kid would snatch the lead. David Crabtree didn’t go without a fight, as he challenged at one point for the race lead until finally fading allowing Billy Ogle, Jr. to claim the win.
Next up on June 2nd is the J.T. Kerr Memorial 40! 40 laps for the NeSmith Crate Late Model Touring Series, where they will try their hand at a cool $4,000 prize check. Also on the card will be the Street Stocks, Topless Modified, and Mini Stock, where every support division will be running for a cool $400! So make sure you come out to this special event and enjoy a GREAT night of racing honoring the memory of a GREAT Hall of Fame legend!

Another great night of racing is in the book at 411 Motor Speedway! The action was fast and furious! Robert Martin stole the checkers in Thunder & Lightning, David Singleton flew to the checkers in Mini Stock, Ryan King methodically worked lap traffic in NeSmith Crates to make it 2-for-2 for the weekend for him. Dale Watson held off Gary Blanken again this week to win in Street Stock, while Michael Courtney again cruised to the $500 paycheck in Mod Mini. In Limited Lates, Crabtree was poised to snap Ryan King’s weekend win streak until he would bounce off the turn 2 wall on lap 10, opening the door for Ryan King to power around him and claim his 3rd win for the weekend and sweep both Late Model features at 411.
Next up on May 19th is a regular racing program. But don’t forget, the ULTIMATE Super Late Models will be IN THE HOUSE on May 25th, that’s a Friday night, at the 411 Motor Speedway for a $4,000 feature! See you this Saturday night at Tennessee’s Action Track!
