(March 18, 2020) Mitch McCarter (411 Motor Speedway), Roger Sellers (Smoky Mountain Speedway), Gary Hall (Tazewell Speedway), and Landon Stallard (Volunteer Speedway) have collectively decided to suspend operations for at least 30 days in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The group will closely monitor the situation in coordination with federal, state, local, and public health officials along with information that is based on guidelines from the CDC.

Race schedules at the tracks must be altered due to recommendations to limit crowd sizes to stem the spread of the virus during the National State of Emergency. The tracks will tentatively plan to return to racing no earlier than Friday, April 17th with the exception of the Bill Corum Memorial event at Tazewell Speedway currently scheduled for Saturday, April 11th. A decision on this event will be made on April 1st.

The national and regional touring series events that are scheduled at each facility during this time period will be evaluated by each track and series involved to find a suitable reschedule date if available. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at 411 originally scheduled for Friday, April 3rd has already been moved to Friday, June 26th.

Marlar Madness; Tennessean Slides Weiss to Win at Smoky Mountain!

(March 7, 2020) Just like on the college basketball court, Saturday night’s World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series race featured two of the best in the sport up against each other with the pressure on the line and a big trophy awaiting the winner. By the time 60 laps around Smoky Mountain Speedway were complete, the packed grandstands had been treated to an incredible race that saw home-state hero Mike Marlar regain the lead after a late restart and bring it back to the checkered flag for his first ever Tennessee Tipoff victory.

The 2018 Series champion made the winning move on 2019 Rookie of the Year Ricky Weiss in a big slidejob for the lead with just over two laps remaining to secure the victory, Weiss settling for the runner-up spot. Josh Richards crossed in third after a climb from 10th and strong presence inside the top-five all race long.

Polesitter Chris Madden, of Gray Court, SC, led the field to the drop of the green with Brandon Sheppard and Marlar, from Winfield, TN, on his heels as he pulled away to a nice gap before suffering a reported power steering issue on lap 25, ending his night early. By then, Weiss had made his way to the runner-up position from eighth, picking off cars one at a time down low before inheriting the lead from Madden’s misfortune under the caution. | full results

 

Track Announces 2020 Plans for Support Classes!

(February 18, 2020) The support class program at Smoky Mountain in 2019 was well received by drivers and owners alike so we have made a few minor adjustments and plan on duplicating that in 2020. Drivers were very appreciative of our investment in the local racing scene. We were able to offer a points championship for running a limited amount of races instead of investing an entire season. Thanks to our great partners, we awarded perfect attendance drivers with not only cash, but great contingency awards. Our champions (Chase King - LLM and Jed Emert - Sportsman) also received trophies, big checks, custom designed championship t-shirts, and Hoosier Racing embroidered jackets. (Heath Lawson Photo)

Limited Late Models and Sportsman Late Models will compete at all SMS events in 2020. A total of 8 races, however one change from 2019, Each driver will be able to drop one race at the end of the season. The best 7 finishes will determine the champions in 2020. The race dates and purse structures are posted at the end of this press release. | full press release
