Mother Nature threw 411 Motor Speedway officials a curveball on Saturday, but Mother Nature wouldn’t win as we got a fantastic night of feature-only racing underway around 9p. Those visiting Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine Victory Lane included: Philip Thompson in Classic, Cindy Poore in Mini Stock (after Sam Burgess refused to pull his valve cover), Shannon Smith in Street Stock, Johnny Ridings in Modified, Robbie Comer in Thunder & Lightning, and Matt Henderson in Limited Late Models.
Join us this Saturday August 17th for Tennessee State Bank Kids Back 2 School Night as all students grades K-12 get free admission into the grandstands. We’ll also have kids bike races (kids are encouraged to bring their own bikes, but helmets are mandatory), as well as the Tennessee State Bank Money Machine! Come join the fun this Saturday!
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 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.
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 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!
The 3rd Annual Hangover at the 411 Motor Speedway was washed away on Tuesday January 1st, 2013, but track officials made sure there was still a “Hangover” for fans to see. The 3rd Annual Hangover took place on January 5th, and the racing was fast and furious just like it always is at 411. First on the track was the Mini Stock division, where we saw Lee Merritt notch his first career victory! In Topless Modified, it was all William Hux who led flag-to-flag. In Classic, Robbie Sands continued his dominance by claiming the win. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer would take the checkers in this 10-lap feature, which was shortened due to time after Clyde Overholt took a tumble (video can be seen at http://ustream.tv/channel/motorspeedway411 – “Features from January 5th, 2013 – Part 1” at around 49:14). Finally capping the night off was the 40-lap Limited Late Model feature where 2012 champion Josh Collins claimed the win.
Coming up on January 19th is the 2012 Awards Ceremony! It will begin at 6:00p Eastern and further details will be released within the next 24 hours! All fans, drivers, and crew are invited to the ceremony, and it’s guaranteed to be a blast! Our next racing event will take place with the Sweetheart 60 on February 16th! More details about this race are coming soon!
The 2012 season is in the books at the 411 Motor Speedway! Thanks to all the drivers, crew, and fans who attended this season.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame were: Mark Bailes (Flagman), Jim Miller (Wreckerman), and Hoyt Newman (Track Prep)! Congratulations to these fine gentlemen on a successful career at 411 and we look forward to continuing to have them at the track!

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! Be sure to join us this Saturday October 27th for the final race of the 2012 season, the 6th Annual Steel Head Nationals. In addition, we’ll crown the 2012 points champions, with the Mini Stock being decided on this night. Also, we’ll induct the newest members of the 411 Motor Speedway Hall of Fame! We’ll be starting earlier, with the gates opening at 2, and the drivers meeting starting at 4. $15 stands, $20 tier, and $35 pits!
