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!
The USCS Sprint Car Series invaded the 411 Motor Speedway on Friday night for a great night of racing excitement. The first feature on the speedway was the Mini Stock division as Rocky McNabb took the win. Next was Mod Lite as they made their first-ever trip to 411 Motor Speedway. Jackson Griffith ‘smoked’ the field. Next was Thunder & Lightning, where David Miley took the win. Next up was the USCS 600cc Sprints, where it was Chris Openshaw taking the win. Limited Late Models were up next, where Rusty Ballenger was holding off several challenges from Matt Henderson, until Henderson would drop fluid, causing an 7-car pileup in turn 1. This shook the running order up, but Ballenger held off Josh Henry to take the win after the time limit expired on lap 17. The final feature of the night was the USCS 360 Outlaw Sprints, where this feature was too cut short by the Sevier County Sheriff’s Department on lap 15, where Dalton Davis would take the win.
We’re back to regular weekly points racing this Saturday May 11th. It’ll be another great night, so be sure to make your plans to enjoy the action!
This past Saturday night was a mixed bag of excitement at Tennessee’s Action Track! 22 cars would sign into the Mini Stock division, and all 22 would start the feature. Amazingly, they would go all 20 laps caution-free with Rocky McNabb taking the win! Next was the Topless Modified division, where fireworks would fly off turn 2 on lap 17 when Eric Hux and Tim Weaver got together, ending both their nights, handing the lead to Johnny Ridings. He would hang on with two front broken shocks to take the win. Next was the Classic, where Scott Lacy would take the win. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer was showing the way — and showing smoke — until officials issued the black flag for oil, handing the lead over to David Miley. He’d cruise to the win. The next feature was the Street Stock division, where Dwayne Fox would take the checkers. The final feature of the night would prove to be a fan favorite as fireworks flew early and often, including tempers! Rusty Ballenger would set fast time with a lap of 13.892 in qualifying. Things would get off to a bumpy start as the first caution flew with Ryan King going around after slight contact from Greg Martin. King would look for a way through the field disagreeing with the call. King would be running 3rd when perhaps the most controversial caution — the 5th of the night — flew on lap 12 when Jason Cardwell would look for his way around a lap car, when Ballenger would drive deep into turn 3 and make heavy contact with Cardwell. Cardwell would retire for the night with suspension damage, and Ballenger would hit the hot pits for a tire change. This handed the lead over to King. By lap 25, the 10th caution of the night would fly when Keith Gregory would drop fluid heading up high into turn 3. King would show the way with the caution displayed, but would run into the fluid and spin out, cutting a left-rear tire when he bounced off the wall. He would again re-join the field at the rear, and blast his way up close to the front when the final caution of the night flew on lap 29. Many fans were puzzled with this caution, as Layne Clifton would show the way into turn 1 as the leader, but drove too deep and would pound the outside wall. Ballenger would take the low side but he would also go around. Many fans thought this would hand the lead over to King, but caution was thrown for Clifton, giving Ballenger a mulligan. Ballenger would hold off King over the final restart to take the win.
Coming up next week is a DOUBLE points night for the competitors! Be sure to join us for another great night of action-packed excitement under the lights at the 411 Motor Speedway! Same time, same classes, same place! See you all on Saturday!
It was a very exciting night at Tennessee’s Action Track, as track officials raced the program along in order to beat the incoming weather. Despite their best efforts, the program was cut short, but only the final feature of the night was affected. Kicking off the night was the Mini Stock division, with David Singleton taking the win. The 2nd feature of the night would have been the Junior Hornet division, however only 1 driver made it to the track. The next feature was the Topless Modified, where Eric Hux took the win. Next was Classic, where the unofficial spokesman of the division came home with the win. Thunder & Lightning was up next, with reigning champion Robbie Comer showing the way when his engine would expire on lap 6, handing the win over to David Miley. Next was the Street Stock, where Adam Engel, in only his 2nd Street Stock feature, showed the way on lap 17 until contact into turn 3 from 2nd-place Jon Cook dashed both driver’s chances, handing the win over to Chuck Johnson. The final feature of the night was the Limited Late Model division. They would have some trouble settling down and getting going, but once they did, the action was fast & furious. In qualifying, Adam Beeler set the fast time at 13.559, which just happened to be a shade quicker than the previous Limited Late Model divisional record he set on September 29th, 2012, when he lowered the time to 16.625. Beeler would show the way, early, but on lap 16, off turn 2, the engine in his machine would grenade. Jason Cardwell was in the 2nd spot. With rain on the way, track officials quickly worked to throw dirt on the oil to attempt to get the program back underway, when the skies opened up under the caution, ending the program for the night.
Join us next Saturday night for another great night of racing excitement as we kick off the 2013 points racing season! You’ll see action in all 7 classes!

A wild Saturday night is in the books at 411 Motor Speedway! Fans certainly got their $10 worth plus more! In Coy Floyd Classic Shootout Action, we saw Logan Dukes take the checkers. In Topless Modified, Johnny Ridings was well on his way to victory when a broken shock caused his car to spin in turn 4 – on the last lap – handing the win over to Buddy Norwood. It was Ridings’ first race since suffering severe burns in a fiery incident at 411 on July 28th. In Thunder & Lightning, it was David Miley taking the win. In Mini Stock, James Mitchell would beat and bang on David Singleton throughout the feature, until the final lap. Mitchell would knock Singleton out of the way off 2, then Keith Sands would power inside both drivers into 3. Off 4, Singleton would spin Sands, giving the win to Mitchell. Mitchell would refuse to pull his valve cover, resulting in a DQ, handing the win to Dalton King. In Street Stock action, it was all Reagan Williams but he had his hands full as Nick Barnard challenged all 20 laps. And finally in Limited Late Model it was all Adam Beeler as he would take the win.

In Topless, 6 drivers were signed in for competition, where Keith Gregory smoked the field, and in Limited Late Model, another 10 competitors signed in, but it was The Monkey Killer, Jason Cardwell holding off Josh Collins to claim his 2nd win of the season.

Another great night of racing action is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track! First off, Adam Engel blazed to victory lane in the Classic division. Next up was Thunder & Lightning where David Miley schooled the field to claim the win despite a 19 minute red flag for a rain shower. In Mini Stock action, we saw the “Rooftop Rocket” blast off to the lead as he dodged heavy lap traffic all feature long. Travis Reno dueled with Larry Sullivan, surrendering the race lead in turn 3 on the final lap, but quickly stole it back when Sullivan couldn’t hang onto his machine and spun in 4. The next division was a barn burner where Justin Summers and Keith Gregory wore each other out and raced hard every single lap as these two were virtually side-by-side the final 9 laps, but Summers was the quickest gun in this shootout. And in Limited Late Model, Rusty Ballenger, Eric Tipton, and Josh Collins were dueling for the race lead on lap 25 until the 2012 Limited Late Model points leader Josh Collins made a rare mistake which resulted in him grinding the turn 2 wall. In the end, Rusty Ballenger claimed the checkers, and with Collins’ misfortune and Ballengers’ race win, the points lead in Limited Late Model is now tied between Collins and Ballenger!
