CHARLOTTE, NC – Arkadelphia Speedway in Bremen, AL was introduced today as the newest NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series track by NeSmith Racing official at the CARS Trade Show. Arkadelphia Speedway will also host a NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division event during the 2014 season.
Drivers in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Late Model Division at Arkadelphia Speedway will compete for both a track point fund and a National point fund against drivers at other NeSmith Racing sanctioned track throughout the Southeast. The NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series features a $20,000 National point fund that pays $10,000 to the National Champion.
The NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Late Model Division at Arkadelphia Speedway will compete during a 27-week season that runs from March 24, 2014 through September 28, 2014. A driver’s best 14 weekly event point totals count towards their National point total.
“There are a lot of late models around here that run the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series, and they all seem to like it,” Arkadelphia Speedway President Gene Norman said. “We’re looking for a good car count and some close racing because NeSmith officials have made weekly late model racing affordable with a level playing field.”
The dirt late model race cars in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series are powered by the economical Chevrolet Performance Crate Engines that are built and sealed at the factory to prevent any expensive modifications. There are two engines to choose from, the 400 horsepower aluminum-head 604 engine for $5,495 and the 350 horsepower steel-head 602 engine that gets a 100-pound weight break.
Both of these engines are in stock and available for free next day delivery anywhere in the Southeast from NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton, GA. To place an order call Tim Bland at 1-877-497-3624.
The addition of Arkadelphia Speedway brings the total of NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series tracks in Alabama to five. Arkadelphia Speedway joins Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL, Penton Raceway in Penton, AL, East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, AL and Smokey Harris Speedway in Haleburg, AL as NeSmith Chevrolet WRS sanctioned tracks.
The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Touring Division will also visit Arkadelphia Speedway for the first time ever in 2014 with a $2,500-to-win 50-lap race on August 30. This race will be the first of two Labor Day Holiday Weekend events for the Touring Series, with the second being a $2,000-to-win 40-lap race at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, MS.
