December 30, 2016- Whynot Motorsports Park Adds NeSmith Sportsman Class
Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi is the latest speedway to add the NeSmith Late Model Sportsman Division to their racing line-up. The division which features Dirt Late Model cars powered by the Chevrolet Performance 602 engine will join two other NeSmith Racing sanctioned divisions already in action at "The House Of Hook" - the NeSmith Dirt Late Model Series and the NeSmith Performance Parts Street Stock Division.

Whynot Motorsports Park has been one of the key players in fostering the growth of NeSmith Racing in the state of Mississippi. The addition of the NeSmith Late Model Sportsman Division will continue that great relationship, and help build stars for the new division in the region. The affordability and rules package put together by NeSmith Racing offers a truly affordable entry-level Late Model division.

"Whynot Motorsports Park has been a part of the NeSmith Racing family since it was re-opened and we are proud to not only continue, but expand our relationship with them with the addition of the new NeSmith Late Model Sportsman Division," stated NeSmith Racing CEO Mike Vaughn. Whynot joins the growing list of sanctioned speedways that have signed up for the inaugural season for the NeSmith Late Model Sportsman Division in 2017. More tracks are being added and negotiations continue with others as the 2017 season is just around the corner.

NeSmith Late Model Sportsman Division drivers will earn points during the 27 week Weekly Racing Season, and be eligible for Track and National Point Funds. Their 14 best finishes will be counted and used to figure the final points tally. Drivers will be competing against the strong local talent as well as drivers throughout the NeSmith Weekly Racing Series family of sanctioned tracks.

Whynot Motorsports Park is located at 4773 JW Reynolds Road, Meridian, MS. You can also visit them on-line at their official website www.WhynotMotorsportsPark.com You can also follow them on social media: Facebook - Whynot Motorsports Park and Twitter @Whynotracing1.
