Wanted to share this Late Model info...


Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share this Late Model info with everyone. This same program NESMITH has given to Arkansas is the same program they offered us at Shady Oaks. NESMITH is looking to make seperate regions in Texas as well. Like I said this is just food for thought. If anyone has any questions or comments about this Program please feel free to contact me at the information below.

 

 

CARTERSVILLE, GA – The NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series has announced the addition of two new tracks in Arkansas for the 2011 season, and the beginning phase of a new Region. Drew County Speedway in Monticello, AR and Centerville Speedway in Centerville, AR have joined the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series for the 2011 season.

 

That sets the foundation for a new Region for the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series where Arkansas dirt late model competitors will have the opportunity to compete for a track point fund, as well as a Regional point fund that will pay the winner $5,000 and pay back the top ten positions at the end of the season that will run from April 1, 2011 through October 2, 2011.

 

There has been a lot of interest in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series from both Arkansas dirt tracks and drivers in recent weeks. Series officials have been in contact with several other Arkansas track operators in an effort to sign even more tracks to create the new Region.

 

“Drew County Speedway and Centerville Speedway have recognized this new interest in Crate Late Model racing in Arkansas and have stepped up to the plate to get on the bandwagon to start creating a new Region for the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series in 2011,” NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Director Roby Helm said. “Both the track operators and the racers see the economic advantage in that they can put together a ready-to-race dirt late model for the same price that some competitors have in their Hobby Stock engines alone.”

 

Series officials have talked to dirt late model chassis manufacturers like GRT Race Cars in Greenbrier, AR and dirt late model equipment suppliers like Bill Frye Racing, and they have indicated there are dirt late model chassis both new and used ready and waiting for reasonable prices.

 

Add to that the economical and durable GM Performance Crate Engines used in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series dirt late models, and drivers from some of the lower divisions can put a competitive dirt late model together for less money and race for bigger purses.

 

NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton, GA is offering special rebates on GM Performance 604 and 602 Crate Engines through December 31, 2010, or while supplies last. These engines are sealed at the factory to prevent any expensive modifications and are used as the powerplants in the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series and Weekly Racing Series.

 

The NeSmith Chevrolet everyday low price for the aluminum-head 400 horsepower GM Performance 604 Crate Engine is $5,295, but with NeSmith Chevrolet’s special instant rebate of $300 the price is $4,995.

 

The NeSmith Chevrolet everyday low price for the steel-head 350 horsepower GM Performance 602 Crate Engine is $3,295, but with NeSmith Chevrolet’s special instant rebate of $200 the price is $3,095.

 

Race cars powered by the GM Performance 602 Crate Engine receive a 150 pound weight break for NeSmith Chevrolet DLMS competition. The GM Performance 602 Crate Engine is also used in Street Stock and Hobby Stock Divisions at most NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series sanctioned tracks. See your local track’s rulebook for details.

 

These are instant rebates off the purchase price with no forms to mail off and no waiting. The instant rebates are just a part of “No Hassle” buying at NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton, GA, the number one GM Powertrain Dealer four years running, and the title sponsor of the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, the nation’s leader in affordable dirt late model racing.

 

To place an order to take advantage of these special instant rebates on GM Performance Crate Engines at NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton, GA, call Tim Bland toll-free at 1-877-497-3624, or visit them online at www.nesmithnow.com. NeSmith Chevrolet in Claxton, GA also has free next-day delivery in the Southeastern United States, so you can order today, and be racing tomorrow.

 

The NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series provides a common set of rules that gives dirt late model competitors an opportunity to visit different tracks without having to make changes to their race cars to accommodate different rules, consistent tech support to keep a level playing field, an opportunity to compete against drivers at different tracks for a Regional Championship without leaving their home track, and receive media recognition on a local, regional and national level.

 

Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, AR has been a part of the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series for the past two seasons, and in those two seasons grew from zero cars with a new Division in 2009 to 27 registered drivers this season. Helm said the Batesville Motor Speedway drivers were looking for a better opportunity to win a Regional Championship, and the series is trying to accommodate them with a new Region.

 

“The Arkansas drivers felt they were at a disadvantage in competing for a Regional Championship because they would have to travel to Mississippi to compete at other tracks in the West Region and to earn bonus points at NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Touring events,” Helm said. “For 2011, we would like to give the Arkansas drivers their own Region, and they can earn 25 Regional bonus points for every four straight weeks of perfect attendance and earn up to 150 Regional bonus points during the Weekly Racing Series season.”

 

Helm said series officials are hopeful that Batesville Motor Speedway will resign for the 2011 NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series season and be a part of the new Arkansas Region.

 

“Before 2009, there had not been any weekly dirt late model racing in Arkansas for several years,” Helm said. “Batesville Motor Speedway Promoter Mooney Starr not only brought weekly dirt late model racing back to Arkansas in 2009, but he also made it affordable by signing with the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series. Mooney Starr set the table for a new Arkansas Region, and we hope he continues to be a part of this growth in the future.”
