In Louisiana we have Baton Rouge (friday), Forest Hill Speedway (sat.), Boothill Speedway (sat.), Champion Park Speedway (sat.) and possibly Louisiana Motor Speedway (don't know yet)...and just read that the new leesville 181 speedway will run lates as well (friday I do believe) There are 2 in Texas, Lone Star Speedway (sat.) and Rosebowl Speedway (sun.).

Jammin, I can't believe there isn't a track in arkansas that runs lates every week. It's sad.

Batesville and Centerville were the last as far as I know. That was the whole reason Mooney started the MARS Series is because they could no longer afford it weekly at their track and there were way too many cars in Arkansas that weren't running anywhere weekly. Pretty sad deal...........

Houston Texas. Houston Raceway Park runs a latemodel class, but it may be more like a Sportsman class, they run fact clip. A lot of the competetion still run the old Camaro Stock Cars.

There is no shortage of weekly late model tracks in middle to eastern Tennessee.

Tennessee Motor Speedway, Crossville Raceway, Atomic Motor Speedway, Volunteer Speedway, I-81 Speedway Park, Tazwell Speedway, Scenic Raceway, Cleveland Speedway, Duck River Speedway, and soon to be Golden Mountain Motor Speedway near Sparta, TN.
That is all that I can think of right off the top of my head.

Hey Jammin, Come on up my way, MLRA style Late Models on a weekly show, every Sat. $1000.00 to win and $100.00 to start. The place, South Coffeyville Oklahoma. about 65 miles north of Tulsa on Hwy 169 Mid-America Motor Speedway. This Sat. kicks off the season with MLRA $2500 to win and then next weekend is the brand new series TORA. Topless Outlaw Latemodels. If your coming up send me a e-mail or message on ICQ first, and I will save you a seat. The track is packed every Sat. night.

I agree ClayClod, I attend the top 3 on a regular basis and a few of the others on occasion, there are to many tracks here running, and at time the count is low too bad.
