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.
Next up on the schedule is 2 open practice sessions on March 2nd and March 16th, just ahead of the 2013 season opener on March 30th, the 2nd Annual Peter Cottontail 50! Make your plans now to join us this season for great racing action every Saturday night.

Mother Nature again helped us out on Saturday with track prep, and once the track surface was laid down, the action was fast and furious. In Classic, Scott Russell took the win. Next up was the Street Stock where Travis Reno claimed the checkers. In Mini Stock, Dillion Martin got the win. Next up was the NeSmith Crates where Ryan King did a bump-n-run in turn 3 on the last lap to take the win. In Thunder & Lightning it was Greg Estes taking the win, but in post-race tech he was found to have illegal shocks, handing the win to Dale Watson. In Topless, it was all Eric Hux, and capping the night was Jason Cardwell taking the win in Limited Late Model.
Coming up this Saturday September 15th, we’ll have another exciting night of racing in the Limited Lates, Crate Lates, Topless Modified, Street Stock, Thunder & Lightning, Mini Stock, and Classic!
Another night of great racing is in the books at the 411 Motor Speedway! First on the speedway was a slugfest in the Classic at the start as Bart Baxter and Scott Russell played bumper cars before they would settle down, and after the dust settled, it was Scott Russell claiming the win. In Street Stock, Travis Reno set a new track record for the Street Stock division as they got to qualify. Reno would claim the victory. In Mini Stock, David Singleton continued his winning ways, then in NeSmith Crates we would see Ryan King take the checkers. The win would net him 2 points in the Weekly Racing Series for NeSmith, which allowed him to tie for the 3rd position in NeSmith WRS points. In Thunder & Lightning, Robbie Comer would power to the win. In Topless, it was a spinfest as 8 cautions slowed the pace – and cut the laps short – as Keith Gregory took the checkers. The final feature of the night was one that will be talked about for a while.
Coming up this Saturday September 1st is our Limited Late Model special event. Our Limited Lates will be running for $1,500. Joining the Limited Late Models will be the Street Stock ($300), Thunder & Lightning ($300), Mini Stock ($200), and Modified Mini ($500).
Great racing was seen on a very slick 411 Motor Speedway, where drivers had to manage throttle control to claim wins. In Topless Modified, Keith Gregory blasted from dead last to take the win. Next up was Mini Stock where David Singleton would power from dead last to win. The streak of features with the winner coming from the rear was snapped when Ryan King won from the pole in NeSmith Crate Late Model action. Next up was the Thunder & Lightning where Robbie Comer would pick up the win. In Street Stock action, Travis Reno would blast from dead last to claim the win, and the final feature of the night was the Limited Late Model where Josh Collins launched from the pole and lapped up to 4th place en-route to the victory.
Another great night is coming up on Saturday August 4th! Limited Late Model, NeSmith Crate Late Model, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, Topless Modified, Mini Stock, and Classic will be in action!
Another great Tuesday night of racing action is complete, and it was fast, furious, and exciting! In Topless Modified, Johnny Ridings held off valiant charges for the lead from Paul Johnson and Justin Summers to earn his first win of the season. In Limited Late Model, a record 10 cautions were thrown for several incidents and spins, with Rusty Ballenger besting a hard-charging Josh Collins. The Newport Nightmare Jimmy Owens made an appearance, powering into the race lead from the getgo, leading the first 9 laps, then pulling off and rejoining the field. He would charge back up to a 4th place finish. In Mini Stock, David Singleton was cruising to his 9th win of the season, but bad luck would strike, handing the win to Sam Burgess. Travis Reno would take the checkers in the Street Stock feature, but Warren McMahan would lodge a protest. Reno refused, and McMahan was awarded the win. Next up was the final feature of the night, with Ryan King taking the checkers in controversial fashion in the NeSmith Crate Late Models.
Next up on the schedule is another regular program, with racing excitement in the Limited Late Model, NeSmith Crate Late Model, Topless Modified, Thunder & Lightning, Street Stock, and Mini Stock!
A wild night might be an understatement to describe this past Saturday’s event! Adam Engel showed the way the first 19 laps of the Classic feature, but spun on entry to 3, handing the win to Cameron Skinner. Travis Reno took the win in Thunder & Lightning, while Brian Dinkins won the Mini Stock feature but refused to tear down, handing the win to David Singleton. Ryan King survived the caution-filled NeSmith Crate feature to claim the win, while Paul Johnson won in Topless Modified, and capping the night was Josh Collins claiming the win in Limited Late Model.

Another great night of racing is in the book at 411 Motor Speedway! The action was fast and furious! Robert Martin stole the checkers in Thunder & Lightning, David Singleton flew to the checkers in Mini Stock, Ryan King methodically worked lap traffic in NeSmith Crates to make it 2-for-2 for the weekend for him. Dale Watson held off Gary Blanken again this week to win in Street Stock, while Michael Courtney again cruised to the $500 paycheck in Mod Mini. In Limited Lates, Crabtree was poised to snap Ryan King’s weekend win streak until he would bounce off the turn 2 wall on lap 10, opening the door for Ryan King to power around him and claim his 3rd win for the weekend and sweep both Late Model features at 411.

Street Stock was the next class, were Gary Blanken wore out the competition, and the final feature of the night was the Limited Late Models where Ryan King flexed his muscles and led flag-to-flag through several cautions.
