NDRL Event at Smoky Mountain Speedway Grows to 2 Shows for HUGE East Tennessee Weekend

Maryville, Tennessee (December 23, 2013) After several partner track ideas fell through, the ownership group of Smoky Mountain Speedway have decided to kick their season opener up a few notches. Smoky Mountain and NDRL Officials announced today that the National Dirt Racing League event originally scheduled as a one-day $10,000 to win show on Saturday, March 8th will now expand to a huge double-header weekend. On Thursday night, March 6th Smoky Mountain will host an open practice for all divisions. Then on Friday night, March 7th drivers entering the NDRL event will be gunning for a $7,500 winner’s purse. Saturday, March 8th the NDRL entrants will chase after a $12,500 winner’s share.

“This is easily the biggest event that has ever been promoted at Smoky Mountain. There is a tremendous amount of money being put up for these racers to come after. We will also have great purses for our support classes as well. This event could go down as one of the biggest events to ever happen in East Tennessee. Our fans want the best and they deserve it. So we are stepping up to the plate for them in 2014. We have worked hard to put together a great schedule and we are excited about this being how we get started. We want to invite everyone to come out to Smoky Mountain and make a weekend of it. We have space for camping and we are conveniently located to several motels and hotels in the area.” exclaimed Smoky Mountain ownership partner Roger Sellers.

Officials of the National Dirt Racing League are equally excited about the expansion of the Smoky Mountain weekend. “Smoky Mountain Speedway has such a great location. It’s just a short drive to so many of the area’s numerous attractions. A family could make a vacation out of the weekend. Hit all of the attractions during the day and then head back to the track at night for the racing action. And Smoky Mountain offers some of the most exciting racing you will find anywhere. We are very privileged to be able to work with Casey, Dustin and the ownership group there at Smoky Mountain. We are really looking forward to a great weekend of racing and fun there in the Maryville area.” added NDRL Series Director Kelley Carlton.
