Drivers in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Late Model and the NeSmith Performance Parts Street Stock Division Presented By AR Bodies will 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 September 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.

Vernon Barker and Butch Knuckles partnered up to lease the track and were able to get a couple of races in before the end of the 2013 season. They are looking forward to their first full season in 2014 under the NeSmith Racing banner for the Late Model and Street Stock Divisions on Saturday nights.

“There has been a big growth in the NeSmith Chevrolet Weekly Racing Series Late Model Division in this area over the past two years, and we’ve had a lot of interest from those drivers that are looking forward to racing at Poplar Bluff Speedway in 2014,” Barker said. “We’re also excited about being the first track in this area to have the NeSmith Performance Parts Street Stock Division.”

Barker said Poplar Bluff Speedway invites competitors to a 2014 Preview and Rules Meeting on January 11 at 6 p.m. at the Elk’s Lodge located at 2452 U.S. Highway 67 North in Poplar Bluff, MO. Barker and Knuckles will discuss the 2014 rules and plans for the track during the 2014 season.
