We look forward to the racers getting to enjoy both venues and hope that in the future we can expand the Series to even more tracks in the state.”

“We are excited about the addition of Desoto Speedway to the Bright House Challenge Series in 2014,” said Bright House Executive John Poage. “This move will allow Bright House Network Customers on both sides of the state to enjoy the top Super Late Model Drivers in competitive Series action.”

Jimmy Cope, general manager of Desoto Speedway, has plans for a very exciting 2014 race season at Desoto and said he is thrilled to start off the season with the Bright House Challenge Series Icebreaker 100.
