Night 1 of the Ole Smoky Spring Nationals are in the books, and it was a great – and at one point wild – night for the cars and stars of the 411 Motor Speedway and NeSmith Late Model Touring Series. Beginning the night, it was Michael Courtney and Jason Gregory battling for the lead, but it was eventually Courtney taking the win in Mini Stock. The 2nd feature of the night saw Heath Alvey taking the checkers, leading all 20 laps, but over the final 10 laps Jordon Horton would make some noise, but could only reel in Alvey to about a half car length. The final feature of the night was the Ole Smoky Moonshine 40, where we saw Cory Hedgecock set fast time with a New Divisional Record for NeSmith, with a lap of 13.826. Joining him on the front row was Jimmy Elliott. Hedgecock would show the way from lap 1 to lap 4, when Ryan King muscled his way around Hedgecock. On a lap 24 restart, Elliott was able to power back into the 2nd spot around Hedgecock. Elliott would ride in the 2nd spot and peek for the race lead from lap 24 through 39, when King, working lap traffic in his windshield, would leave just enough room for Elliott to power inside in turn 3 for the final time. The two would make contact, and it was Jimmy Elliott out of Cleveland, TN taking the last-lap win.
Join us again tonight (Saturday April 5th) for the Ole Smoky Moonshine 50 for the NeSmith Late Model Touring Series, Night 2 of the Ole Smoky Spring Nationals at 411 Motor Speedway. NeSmith will be gunning for $3,000 to win across 50 laps tonight. Street Stock and Thunder & Lightning will each have a 20-lap, $1,000 to win feature. If you have a 2-day Tier or Grandstand pass, or if you have a 3-day pit pass, you’re covered for tonight. If not, it’ll be Adults $15 in the stands, kids 6-11 $5, and 5 & under free. Tier will be $25 per person, regardless of age. Adults in the pits $35, kids 11 & under $15 with a signed waiver. We’ll have live updates all night long on Facebook and Twitter, with the webcam rolling and live commentary taking place on the webcam.
