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..

What a great night we had on Saturday night! If you weren’t there, shame on you, you missed a great night! We raised money for a cure for Alzheimer’s, and also got to see some great finishes! First on the speedway was the Classic, where Bobby Pressley took the checkers. Next up was Modified Mini where sparks flew between the leaders. After the concrete dust settled, Jimmy Elliott came from the rear of the field, survived a flat tire, and took the checkers! In Topless Modified, Eric Hux claimed another win, then in NeSmith Crates, we would see Trevor Sise finally break through as he edged Ryan King by mere inches for the win. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer clicked off another win. The UMP/IMCA Open Wheel Modified division joined us for a special race, where we saw Billy Palmer leading into turn 1 on the final lap, but he would lose the handle on his machine, opening the door for Stanley Donahoo to take the victory. In Limited Late Model action, it was all Cory Hedgecock as he held off challenge after challenge from behind and below to lead flag-to-flag to claim the checkers.
Coming up this Saturday is another great night of points racing excitement. In action will be Limited Late Model, NeSmith Crate Late Model, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, Mini Stock, and Topless Modified!
More great racing was witnessed this past Saturday night at Tennessee’s Action Track! In Classic, Adam Engel muscled around Bart Baxter to claim the win. In Street Stock, Jason Ogle held off a strong field of cars to claim the victory. In Mini Stock, Keith Sands and David Singleton dueled virtually the entire feature, with Singleton taking his 10th win of 2012. In NeSmith Crates, Ryan King and Cory Hedgecock duked it out, with Hedgecock ultimately coming out on top. In Thunder & Lightning, the bad luck streak ended as Robbie Comer claimed the checkers. In Topless Modified, Keith Gregory made some noise as he picked up his 6th win of the season. And finally in Limited Late Model action, points leader Josh Collins led until just past halfway when mechanical trouble relegated him to a bad finish. Chase King went on to claim the checkers while Rusty Ballenger decreased his deficit to 15 points as the championship battle is shaping up nicely in Limited Late Model.
