CARTERSVILLE, Ga. – The signing of Lexington (Tenn.) 104 Speedway gives the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series a West Tennessee trio of sanctioned tracks for the 2013 season.
Lexington 104 Speedway now gives West Tennessee dirt late model racers a Friday night track to go with Clayhill Motorsports in Atwood, Tenn., and Camden (Tenn.) Speedway that will alternate on Saturday nights.
Drivers in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Late Division at Lexington 104 Speedway will now have the opportunity to compete for both a weekly point fund and a national point fund against drivers at other sanctioned tracks using a points system that counts their best 14 weekly point totals during a 27-week season that runs from March 24 through Sept. 28.
The Top 10 drivers in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series point standings at the end of the season will divide up a $20,000 National point fund. The 2014 NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series National champion will pocket $10,000.
“The addition of Lexington 104 Speedway to the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series as a Friday night track could very well play an important role in the 2014 $10,000 National Championship for several drivers,” NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Director Roby Helm said. “By working with both Clayhill Motorsports in Atwood, Tenn., and Camden Speedway in Camden, Tenn., Lexington 104 Speedway will give drivers an additional opportunity to earn National points.”
