Rusty Ballenger cruises to NeSmith win as David Miley captures first Sportsman win

Seymour, TN – Another beautiful afternoon graced the 411 Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon, where the night got kicked off with NeSmith Qualifying. Adam Beeler would eclipse the previous fastest time with his blistering lap of 14.065. Rusty Ballenger was not far behind as the 2nd place qualifier, who turned in a lap of 14.076. Next was Sportsman, where David Miley would take fast qualifier honors and start on the pole for the Sportsman feature with his lap of 14.514 which was good enough to earn him the Sportsman division qualifying record. When feature time rolled around, Thunder & Lightning was first, where Chase King took win #5 on the season. Sportsman was next, where we saw a record 11 cautions and the feature shortened because of time to 20 laps. Jordon Horton took the win, but was light on the scales, handing the win over to David Miley. Next was Street Stock, where Chris Rickett took win #2 and 2 in a row. Nick Perry took win #3 in Mini Stock, and capping off the night was Rusty Ballenger, also collecting win #3.

As announced several times on Saturday night, 411 Motor Speedway will sit idle on Saturday July 19th as we take care of the racing surface for our first hosting of the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals series on Tuesday July 22nd. In support of the Schaeffer’s Oil Souther Nationals Super Late Models will be Sportsman, Street Stock, and Mini Stock.

On Tuesday July 22nd, the gates will swing open at 3:00p ET, with the drivers meeting scheduled for 6:45p ET and hotlaps at 7:00p ET. We would like to remind all competitors at this time that the 411 Motor Speedway is under a strict 11:00p curfew, so all drivers need to make sure they know when they need to be in staging and must be lined up promptly.

Admission pricing for July 22nd will be Adult Grandstands $18 (if you kept your ticket stub from Saturday July 12th, present it at the ticket booth for $2 off), kids 12 & under still free with paid adult. Adult Pit Passes $30, kids 12 & under $15 with signed minor release. We hope to see a packed house as we welcome for the first time the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals to Tennessee’s Action Track!

Fireworks fly on-and-off the track in Jack Henderson Memorial 35

Seymour, TN – On a beautiful Saturday afternoon under a blanket of blue skies, we would host the Jack Henderson Memorial 35 as we honored the memory of Jack Henderson. To help us commemorate the legacy of Jack Henderson properly, we enlisted the help of a familiar face, one Ray Dedrick, to share his words. When feature time rolled around, it was Chris Rickett taking the checkers in Street Stock. Sportsman was won by David Kerr as he picked up his 2nd win this season at 411, and first in Sportsman. NeSmith was up next, where Adam Beeler was the winner in the caution-free feature. Mini Stock was next, where John Byers crossed the line first, but was protested, refused teardown, and disqualified, making Michael Courtney the winner. Capping the night off was Limited Late Model, where the pace was slowed 9 times, but in the end, Jason Welshan was your winner, with Jason Manley coming home in 2nd.

Join us this Saturday July 12th as we welcome back the Thunder & Lightning division in hopes of having a strong car count in this division. We will also host the Sportsman Summer Sizzler 25, where the Sportsman drivers will qualify and feature race in this $600-to-win, $70-to-start, 25-lap feature event.

So please take a few minutes to fill out an information form on our website before this Saturday (again, if you haven’t already turned in a sheet or submitted a form on or before July 5th) so that we may have information on you. Any information forms or sheets collected on Saturday July 12th, will not be received until following the features, so any information form or sheet turned in at any time on July 12th will not be used, regardless of if they’re turned in at the track or submitted online.

Kids night a huge and fun success on Saturday night

Seymour, TN – The first kids night of the 2014 season was chalked up as a huge success on Saturday Night. More than 50 kids came down onto the front straightaway to participate in foot and bike races, as well as a coin toss. There was also a tire roll contest with several of our NeSmith Late Model drivers agreeing to participate. In that race, Ryan King almost took a tumble as his tire went careening into the infield. After the dust settled and the banging took place, it was Chad Beeler taking the tire roll win. Feature racing was up next with Sportsman being the first feature. Terry Poore would take the checkered flag, but 2nd-place finisher Kip Sawyer lodged a complete teardown protest against Poore. Poore would refuse to tear down, so Sawyer was named the winner. Mini Stock was next, where Jason Gregory picked up the win. Gary Blanken took the win in Street Stock, and Rusty Ballenger held off Ryan King for the NeSmith win.

NeSmith Late Model was next where Rusty Ballenger took fast qualifier honors with his lap of 14.173. The fields were set through heat race action, where we rolled into features.

Sportsman was dominated by Terry Poore. Mini Stock Feature 2 was next, where the drivers were brought to the infield, and based on how they finished the first feature, from winner to last place, each driver would re-draw for starting position. After the checkered flag fell in this time-shortened feature, Michael Courtney was sitting in victory lane – after starting 18th! Capping the night off was NeSmith Late Model where Ryan King dominated, leading all 30 laps en-route to his 3rd win of the season.

Kids night announced for June 21st

Coming up on June 21st, we will host our first Kids Night of the season! In addition to all the kids under the age of 12 getting in free of charge with a paying adult, and in addition to the weekly candy toss we host, we also invite all our young fans to bring your running shoes or your bicycles! Bikes can be parked inside the gate by the souvenir booth behind the tower until it’s almost time for intermission. Listen for the announcement of all kids to your bikes, and then you can take your bikes down onto the frontstretch where we will have bike races. We’ll group kids by age, and training wheels are acceptable. We do have one rule for our bike races, if any child participates in the bike races, a helmet is required, so be sure to bring one. If not, we cannot allow the child to race due to insurance regulations. In addition to the bike races and candy toss, we’ll also have a nickel toss, and last but not least, we’ll be giving away bicycles!

If any driver or division would like to round up money to sponsor a bicycle, we’d love for you to do that! The Classic division last season rounded up SIX bikes! So drivers, here’s your chance to make a new fan and donate a bicycle toward the giveaway. For any questions, please contact the track at 865-257-7223.
