CHRISTMAS FROM EVERYONE HERE AT LEGIT SPEEDWAY!
24, 2020 --- With 2020 coming to a close and the New Year
bringing us a new race season just around the corner!!! As much
as we don't like change, 2020 has brought us plenty. At the end
of last season we announced the ending of two classes here at Legit
(Bone Stock and B-Mods). Although we had seen strong car counts
in those classes in the past, recent years had a major decline as
drivers moved to other classes. As we all hope 2021 will bring us
something new, it will bring us 2 new classes of racing to Legit
Speedway. We know this change will not appeal 100% to everyone but
is what we think will work best for today's times and the economics
of our area. These changes are not something we take lightly or
without lots of study and discussion. Other area tracks have made
major class changes this year also attempting to do what they think
is best for their area.
This year will bring us a new SportMod class geared
around beginners allowing our youth to run at a minimum age of 11
years old. This car is designed to be one of the more economical
to run and anyone regardless of age or experience is allowed. These
cars should allow for safer competition for everyone budget minded
with most parts available at your local parts store. This new class
comes as no surprise to most of you as we have discussed how USRA
B-Mods and IMCA Modifieds have grown closer together in rules and
speeds in recent years.
Our second new class for 2021 most likely will be
a surprise for most, but we hope for it to be a fit for our area
at this time. New to the track in 2021 will be Sportsman Late Models.
This class also budget minded but will prove to be very competitive
and a crowd pleaser allowing some with more experience to show their
talents. Cars similar to this rules package were run at West Plains
more than 20 years ago with great success. Many of these drivers
are still on the track today! We hope this creates some new opportunity
and interest for drivers and fans alike.
Our Super Stock division will run under the new Powri
rules with minimal change from recent years. With new unity among
13 Midwest tracks, we are excited to see the results as this should
allow these guys to come from a bigger radius to compete. Our Hobby
Stock, IMCA Modifieds, and Super Late Models will continue with
very minimal change in rules. Super Late Model tire rule is pending
until other surrounding series release their tire rule for 2021.
Updated Payout for all classes will be posted in upcoming weeks.
The 2021 Race Schedule is being finalized and we hope
to announce Banquet/Party Date soon pending new covid restrictions
as we hope they are soon to fade away. Please call with any questions
on new classes. For those we don't see at the banquet we will see
you at the track mid March. HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!!

Action Continues with Sunday Night $4,000-To-Win Event

his money during the final eight circuits of the $10,000-to-win
affair. Surviving late-race charges from both Kent Robinson and
Payton Looney, Casebolt raced to his first-career, COMP Cams Super
Dirt Series victory.
“Things got kind of wild after that last restart.
I was wondering who the 15 car on the scoreboard was, and then all
of the sudden K-Rob (Kent Robinson) shot to my outside,” Casebolt
shared. “We got together there off turn four. I needed this
win bad, and I hope Kent isn’t mad at me. I’d expect
him to do the same thing tomorrow if the roles are reversed."
Casebolt concluded by saying, “It’s kind of crazy to
realize that I just won a $10,000 race on Memorial Day weekend at
West Plains.” | more
