Openshaw, Davis take wins in USCS Sprints, Griffith takes Mod Lite win

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!

Ballenger wins as sparks fly in Limited Lates; Ridings victorious in Topless

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!

Scott Sexton protege shines in thrilling Sweetheart 52 victory

A great afternoon of racing action is in the books at 411 Motor Speedway! The track surface was as best as it’s been, the proof was seen as all the cars that left tier parking were caked in mud! There were a couple scary incidents, as the Topless #Y3 machine driven by Jimmy York would get on two wheels in the middle of 3 and 4 and land hard on the driver side during his heat race. He was ok. Later in the night during the feature for Street Stock, Shannon Emery would go for a wild ride in the #69 machine as he would barrel roll at least 5 times. He would be ok. In Mini Stock, Rocky McNabb would be the winner. In Topless Modified, it was all Eric Hux. Next was Classic where it was anybody’s race as Bobby Pressley prevailed. In Thunder & Lightning, Apaches Quinton held off a hard charge from Landon Williamson. Next in Street Stock, Scott Atkins crossed the line first, but was found to have illegal suspension components, handing the win to JJ Green. Closing the night out was the Sweetheart 52 where Ryan King and Adam Beeler raced tooth-and-nail to the checkers, by Ryan King would take the victory.
