Jason Manley takes win in Limited, while Travis Reno takes Street Stock

Another great night is in the books at 411 Motor Speedway, and the action was fast all night long! In Classic, it was Philip Thompson taking the checkers. Next up was Mini Stock, where Keith Sands took the win. In Street Stock, Travis Reno was the winner. In Topless Modified, it was Johnny Ridings in victory lane. In Thunder & Lightning, it was all Robbie Comer. Rounding out the night was the Limited Late Model where Jason Manley took the win.

Coming up this Saturday is another night of points racing action in all classes EXCEPT Classic. The Classic drivers and 411 Motor Speedway agreed that they would race every-other-week through the end of August. If car counts have not improved in Classic at the end of August, they will no longer be a part of the program at 411 Motor Speedway beginning in September.

“Sands” takes wins in Mini Stock & Classic as Comer returns to victory lane

Another great Saturday night of action is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track! It was a great night for racing as the weather was A+++! First onto the speedway was the Mini Stock, where Keith Sands would take the lead and never look back, scoring the win. In Topless Modified, William Hux held off the field to claim the checkers. In Classic, “Rocket” Robbie Sands blasted to the win. Thunder & Lightning was up next where Robbie Comer took the win, finally shaking the monkey off his back. In Street Stock, Dwayne Fox would take the win, and rounding out the night was the Limited Late Model, where Cory Hedgecock would set on the pole after being the fast time qualifier. He would show the way until lap 24 when he would have trouble getting around a lap car and bounced off the turn 2 wall, cutting a tire down. Jason Cardwell would find himself in the lead after the caution flew — for the 2nd time this season — cruising to the win due to the misfortune of the race leader late in the features! And this is definitely not to discredit Jason, but he’s been on the receiving end of the bad luck stick a lot the past couple years.

Join us this Saturday April 20th as we bring you another exciting night of racing action! All divisions will be racing, which consist of Mini Stock, Junior Hornet, Topless Modified, Classic, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, and Limited Late Model!
