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!
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.

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.

Another great night of racing is in the books at 411! In Mini Stock action, we saw Rocky McNabb take the win. In Topless Modified, we saw two things take place. One, we saw William Hux take the checkers for the first time, and we also saw a fan favorite go up in flames. Johnny Ridings emerged from the car he was driving with his legs engulfed in flames. As of Monday morning, he was home resting comfortably and healing up from 2nd and 3rd degree burns but is expected to make a full recovery, so Get Well Soon Johnny! Next up was the Modified Mini where we saw Dustin Stephens take the win. In Thunder & Lightning, it was all Robbie Comer. In Street Stock, Shannon Emery notched his 2nd win of the season. And concluding the night we saw Jason Manley go 2 in a row as he claimed the checkers as the remaining cars behind him battled tooth-and-nail to the checkers.
Coming up this Saturday is another regular racing program! Racing in Limited Lates, Crate Lates, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, Topless Modified, Mini Stock, and Classic!
Another great night of racing is in the books at Tennessee’s Action Track! In Modified Mini action, it was all Michael Courtney as he smoked the field. Next was Street Stock where Travis Reno again started at the rear and powered his way to the front, however, he didn’t have enough as Shannon Emery took the checkers. In Mini Stock, it was Cole Trickle (Rocky McNabb) taking the win after drafting with Lee Merritt the first handful of laps. In NeSmith Crates, it was John Cobb taking the win. In Thunder & Lightning, it was Robbie Comer as he waxed the field. In Topless Modified, Flash again took the checkered flag as Keith Gregory notches his 8th win of the season. And finally, Josh Collins set fast time in the Limited with a blistering lap of 13.702, but it was all Brad Lowe as he stole the checkers.
Coming up this Saturday is another regular racing program as the season inches closer to the conclusion. There may only be about a month and a half left in the season but there’s A LOT of great racing to be seen yet! This Saturday we’ll have racing in Limited Late Model, NeSmith Crate Late Model, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, Topless Modified, Mini Stock, and Classic.
Mother Nature is working hard to spoil our shows, but she isn’t succeeding. A sure rain-out translated into a bad fast track that saw the track record get shattered by Billy Ogle Jr as he lowered the fastest lap down to a 13.092. In feature action, Logan Dukes made his return to the Classic division at 411 Motor Speedway as he cruised to the win. In NeSmith Crates, Adam Beeler blasted to the victory. In Mini Stock, ole Cole Trickle, I mean Rocky McNabb, picked up the win. In Thunder & Lightning, well the top 2 ran away with it, as Robbie Comer took the win. Oh, 3rd place finisher Barry Duncan was 2 laps down while 2nd place finisher Warren McMahan wasn’t far behind Comer. And in Super Late Model action, it was a front row of “The Kid” and “Mac-Daddy”, but it was Dale McDowell who blasted to victory lane.
Coming up next Saturday August 18th is another regular racing program. Classes in action will be the Limited Late Model, NeSmith Crate Late Model, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, Mini Stock, Topless Modified, and Modified Mini.
Mother Nature again tried to rain on our parade, but the fans, drivers, crew, and staff at the 411 Motor Speedway made it all work out and the entire program was completed despite Mother Nature’s best efforts. In Classic, it was Adam Engel pulling away with the feature win. In Street Stock, Travis Reno returned to victory lane. In Mini Stock, “The Rooftop Rocket” Rocky McNabb rocketed to the win. In NeSmith Crates, Greg “Skinny” Martin blasted to the win with fireworks flying on the post-race cool-down lap. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer stole the lead on lap 10 and cruised to the win, but the action was in turn 1 as Cory Whitted and Rocky Ogle got together heading into 1. Whitted wound up on top of the concrete barriers just outside turn 1. In Topless Modified, Marvin Romines powered away with the race lead, and in Limited Late Model action, Josh Collins again blistered the field on his way to victory lane.
