Mother Nature again gave us a light shower before everything got underway, but again, she would allow us to get a great night of racing action in the books. Rocky McNabb took the win in Mini Stock. Street Stock was next up with Travis Reno leading off turn 4, but slowed as a car had spun in turn 2, but caution wasn’t called as the track wasn’t blocked, and Dale Watson powered by Reno by a couple feet to take the win. In Modified, Shane Taylor took his first Modified win. Robbie Comer took the win in Thunder & Lightning, while Adam Beeler blasted to the win in Limited Late Model.
Join us this Saturday July 27th for Shootout races in Modified and Thunder & Lightning, as well as action in all other classes! All races are non-points. See you all on Saturday!
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..
Join us for another great Saturday night of racing this Saturday May 18th! Pit/Tier gates will open at 3, grandstand gates will open at 4, with the drivers meeting at 6. See you Saturday!
Another great night of racing is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track, and the action was breathtaking in two divisions on a cool Saturday night! First on the track was the Mini Stock, where David Singleton, Tommy Metler, and Rocky McNabb were your top 3, all nose-to-tail on the final lap, but contact between McNabb and Metler would send Metler around into 3, allowing Singleton to skate away with the win. Next was Topless Modified, where Kevin Lewis would score his first-ever feature win. Classic was the next division, where Bart Baxter and Marvin Ray battled back and forth the final 10 laps side-by-side for the win, with Baxter coming out on top. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer and David Miley were the ones to fight for the lead early, but Comer would eventually pull away to claim the win. In Street Stock action, Dale Watson made his return to victory lane, and rounding out the night was the Limited Late Model, where Adam Beeler snatched the lead away early from Cory Hedgecock and never looked back.
Join us this Saturday night as we host Championship Points Race #4! All 7 divisions are on the card, however so far this year we haven’t had any cars show up in Junior Hornet except for the first night. So if you have a Junior Hornet, come on to the track and tell all your friends! The Mini Stock, Junior Hornet, Topless Modified, Classic, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, and Limited Late Model divisions are on the card.

Another great night of racing is complete at 411 Motor Speedway, and now there’s only 1 racing event left for the 2012 season. Last night, we kicked the night off with the Limited Late Model B-Main, which was won by Heath Alvey. Next up was Classic, where Robbie Sands wore out the competition. In Topless Modified, Johnny Ridings would seal the deal as he snatched the early lead and held off several challenges from Keith Gregory to claim the win. In Thunder & Lightning, this feature was shortened to 7 laps with Robbie Comer taking the win. Next was Mini Stock, where Rocky McNabb would take the win. In Street Stock, Dale Watson would be the victor. In Topless Limited Late Model action, Cory Hedgecock would lead all the way to the white flag, when Matt Henderson would muscle his way past off turn 2 to claim the checkers. Hedgecock would lodge a protest against Henderson, who would accept, and was declared legal so the win stands.
Coming up this Tuesday will be an open practice, gates open at 5, practice runs from 6-9. $10 in the pits, $25 per car, and tier will be open free to the public!

Mother Nature again helped us out on Saturday with track prep, and once the track surface was laid down, the action was fast and furious. In Classic, Scott Russell took the win. Next up was the Street Stock where Travis Reno claimed the checkers. In Mini Stock, Dillion Martin got the win. Next up was the NeSmith Crates where Ryan King did a bump-n-run in turn 3 on the last lap to take the win. In Thunder & Lightning it was Greg Estes taking the win, but in post-race tech he was found to have illegal shocks, handing the win to Dale Watson. In Topless, it was all Eric Hux, and capping the night was Jason Cardwell taking the win in Limited Late Model.
Coming up this Saturday September 15th, we’ll have another exciting night of racing in the Limited Lates, Crate Lates, Topless Modified, Street Stock, Thunder & Lightning, Mini Stock, and Classic!
Mother Nature tried her best to spoil our Saturday night, but in the end, we were able to complete all 7 divisions of racing! In Modified Mini, Michael Courtney was cruising to another win until he would make a mistake, allowing Tom Vann to capitalize and hold off Courtney’s rebound to claim the win. Next on the speedway was Street Stock, where Dale Watson took the checkers, but the 2nd and 3rd place finishers were disqualified in post-race tech. In Mini Stock, Rocky McNabb wrestled his way to the lead, but bad luck struck, handing the lead to Keith Sands, who couldn’t hold off David Singleton, who cruised to the checkers. Next was NeSmith Crates, where Adam Beeler made contact with Greg Martin with a handful of laps remaining to claim the checkers. Thunder & Lightning was up next where Wendell Spence had a violent flip on the frontstretch. He was transported via ambulance to a local hospital and was later released. At the checkers, Caleb Patton was given the checkers and took his victory lap, but Freddy Hillard was the true winner. In Topless Modified, Marvin Romines was out front until lap traffic slowed him up, where Keith Gregory would dive inside and run into Romines to steal the lead and claim another win on the season, and in Limited, Josh Collins cruised to the checkers by a half lap over 2nd place Ryan King and lapped all the way up to 4th place. What a drive!
Next up is another regular racing program this Saturday July 21st! Join us for another exciting night of racing action at Tennessee’s Action Track!
Another awesome night of racing is complete at 411, and there was alot of great racing action! In Street Stock, Dale Watson was in front of the beating and banging to claim the win. In Mini Stock, no place was safe as Rocky McNabb was the one who survived the carnage to claim the win. In Crates, Greg Martin led at the white flag lap, but broke in turn 2, handing the win to Cory Hedgecock, his first feature win at 411 Motor Speedway! In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer returned to victory lane after being shut out several weeks. In Topless Modified, Johnny Ridings held off Patrick Evans to claim the win, and Jason Cardwell kicked the monkey to the curb to win in Limited, and earn his first top 5 finish at 411 this season!
Coming up next Monday is the Southern Regional Racing Series Super Late Model special event on Monday July 2nd! It’ll be a $3,000 to win race. In addition, NeSmith Crates, Topless Modified, Street Stock, and Mini Stock will be in action. Special event pricing applies, and the times will be the regular Saturday times. See you next Monday!
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!
Another great night of racing is in the books at 411 Motor Speedway, and it was a record crowd! The first feature of the night was Street Stocks, where Dale Watson claimed the win, but it was not easy as Travis Reno first challenged before fading and suffering mechanical issues, then Gary Blanken would challenge for the win, but just couldn’t find a way around the Watson machine. The next feature was the USCS 600cc Micro Sprints, as we would see Bobby Zaiontz claim the win over Chris Openshaw and Mike Magic. Next up was the Limited Late Models as Josh Collins used the high line — and every inch of it — to claim win #2. Scott Gardner and Bobby Giffin rounded out the top 3, and finally, Jerod Roller “rolled” through lap traffic to claim the USCS 360 Sprints victory, his first-ever USCS victory, over Tim Crawley and Aaron Ruetzel.
