Another great Saturday night of racing is in the books at 411 Motor Speedway, and with only 5 points races remaining, the action is heating up! The fans turned out this past Saturday, and Knox County residents got a $5 discount to the grandstands! But before we announce our next $5 discount, let’s reflect on Saturday! First off, Ryan King stole the show in Crate Late Model, while Drew Kennedy picked up the win in Classic. In the Hardee’s Topless Modified Shootout, we say Derik Duggan drive the former David Day machine to victory lane, only to be protested and declared illegal, handing the win over to Brad Lowe! In Street Stock action, we saw Dale Watson cruise to the checkers, picking up the win AND clinching to 2011 championship in that division. In Mod Street/Super Truck, we saw Cory Cate again drive to victory lane, while Tim Ladd threw everything, including the kitchen sink, to charge from 3rd to the win on the last lap, but Chuck McMahan was no match this week. Dalton King bashed his way to the win in Mini-Stock, while Rusty Ballenger looked to be cruising to victory lane until Josh Collins hit the nitro button and jetted to the win.

Ryan King started the night off winning in Crate Late Model. Marvin Ray claimed the win in Classic, Mike Lewis padded his points lead in Topless. In Street Stock, Dale Watson showed the field how it’s done by claiming the win. In Mod Street/Super Truck, it was Cory Cate who claimed the win, after proving himself legal to Robbie Comer, who was found to be illegal. Tim Ladd was back to his winning ways by claiming the win in Mod-Mini, while David Singleton singled the field out with a win. In Limited Lates, Rusty Ballenger cruised to victory — until 2 laps to go when Jason Cardwell negotiated lapped traffic better and stole the win. Cody Courtney returned to Victory Lane in Mini-Lates.

Another great Saturday night of racing is in the books, and the fans were treated to spectacular racing all night long. In Crate Late Model action, Jason Cardwell set fast time and cruised to the win. In Classics, Jay Eubanks set fast time, but Drew Kennedy claimed the Hardee’s Classic Shootout win. David Day survived both the heat race and the feature without mechanical troubles, claiming his first win in Topless Modified. Dale Watson claimed the win in Street Stock, while Robbie Comer won his 13th consecutive race. In Mod-Mini, Chuck McMahan was the first to cross the line, but was the first and only to be DQed, as he was light on the scales, handing the win over to Jason Carter, while Dalton King cruised to another win in Mini-Stock. Josh Henry out-dueled Rusty Ballenger as both drivers raced tooth-and-nail to the win, with both drivers racing the final 9 laps side-by-side.

The 2nd and final Tennessee RV Thursday Night Thunder is in the books at 411! It was a great night of racing, and another barn burner in the Steel Head division, that left the fans well satisfied with the show! Crates were first to qualify, where David Crabtree would set fast time with a lap of 14.261. Next, was the Steel Heads, where Crabtree would repeat last Saturday’s showing by again sweeping Fast Time Qualifying, only this time by laying down a BLAZING lap of 13.926, good enough for a NEW TRACK RECORD! Greg Martin would claim the win in Crate Late Model, David Singleton would lead all 30 laps of the Front Wheel Drive to claim the win, and Brad Lowe and Rusty Ballenger battled tooth-and-nail for the win, with the “South Knoxville Superstar” Lowe claiming the win!
Another great Saturday Night’s worth of racing action is complete at the 411 Motor Speedway! Chuck McMahan picked up the win in Mod-Mini, while Robbie Sands won in Classic. Mike Lewis won again in Topless to increase his points lead, while Dale Watson won in one of the wildest Street Stock features in a long time–in fact, all of the action happened before we actually went green! Robbie Comer had more trucks and CARS to pass this week, as the Modified Street division is now running with Super Truck. Comer still schooled them for his 12th in a row. Ryan King was the King of Crates after David Crabtree set fast time. Shawn Henry crossed the line first but refused to tear down after Dalton King protested, so King wins in Mod-Mini, and Rusty Ballenger won what is still talked about, the best Steel Head race of the season. For the rest of the story, check out this article!

Another great Saturday night of racing action is in the books, despite the heavy rains and storms that passed through on Saturday. Track workers deserve an extra pat on the back this week after getting the speedway ready after the rain finally stopped for good around 3:30p. Robbie Comer set fast time and increased his win-streak to 9 races-yes, NINE-by winning the Super Truck Shootout. Chuck McMahan claimed the win in Mod-Mini, while Logan Dukes claimed the win in Classic. Keith Gregory returned to victory lane, snapping Mike Lewis’ victory lane-stranglehold, while Jason Ogle broke the string of bad luck by taking the win in Street Stock after Bradly Lewelling cut a tire mid-way in the feature.

Shawn Henry claimed the win in Mini-Stock!
