Schedule Adjustment Announced for May 8th

(April 21, 2021) Smoky Mountain Speedway officials have decided to remove 602 late models from the Smoky Mountain Spring Shootout on Saturday, May 8th. The Red Clay 602 series has a $1500 to win event at I-75 Raceway that night. It's been a major focus recently in East Tennessee to work with our area tracks on scheduling and not competing head to head with similar classes. We felt like this is a decision that will benefit both tracks.

The Red Clay 602 Series will visit Smoky Mountain for the first time on Saturday, July 10th as part of our Mountain Moonshine Classic event for $1500 to win. The Smoky Mountain Spring Shootout will now feature $10,053 to win for the Schaeffer Oil Spring Nationals Super Late Models along with $1500 to win for 604 Late Models and $1200 to win for Open Wheel Modifieds.

Jensen Ford Powers to Southern All-Stars Victory!

(April 17, 2021) Jensen Ford picked up his first Southern All-Stars victory by fending off some of the best dirt late model drivers in the sport. Ford began the night by capturing the pole position for the 40-lap race by setting fast time in group A qualifying. He was joined on the front row by Dale McDowell who lead group B qualifying.

Ford and McDowell battled for the lead on the opening lap. Ford was able to wrestle away the lead and the field went into turn 3. Ricky Weiss grabbed the third spot over Sam Seawright. As the leaders caught slower traffic, Ford stretched out his lead over McDowell. Cory Hedgecock took fourth from Seawright.

A caution on lap 14 slowed the field for a restart. Ford maintained his lead when the race went back to green. Weiss would use the outside line to take second away from McDowell. Weiss would close in on Ford in the closing laps. Ford had no problem in negotiating lapped traffic to take the win over Weiss. Hedgecock finished third. McDowell edged Seawright for fourth. | full story

Chris Madden Earns Redeeming Tennessee Tipoff Win!

(March 6, 2021) Everything in racing can be going right until the unexpected creates heartbreak. Flashback to one year ago, when Chris “Smokey” Madden was leading at Smoky Mountain Speedway. That’s when power steering issues sidelined him for the night on Lap 25. One year later, he got his redemption, leading every lap of Saturday night’s Tennessee Tipoff en route to his 29th World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Feature win, and second at Smoky Mountain. (MRM Racing Photos)

The win makes Madden only the second driver in World of Outlaws history to win multiple Feature events at the track. While leading all 50 laps seemed like a dominant performance, Madden held off challenges from last year’s winner Mike Marlar, and Jonathan Davenport in heavy lap traffic, to take home the $12,000 prize. Madden got the jump at the initial green flag, powering to the number one spot outside of Davenport in Turn 2. He would hold that position easily through the only two cautions of the race, the first for debris on Lap 5, the other for a collision between Cade Dillard and Sam Seawright on Lap 7.

After the final re-start, Madden had to fight through a long green flag run and heavy lap traffic. The driver of the Drydene #44 machine caught the tail end of the field on Lap 16, and five laps later, he’d face his first challenge from Marlar. The 2018 Series champion consistently got a run on Madden into the corner and poked his nose under him each corner. That’s when Madden made a switch to the bottom of the racetrack, blocking Marlar’s runs low line runs. | full story
