been competing at area racetracks such as Paducah International

House said. "Other classes that may compete on a regular
or infrequent basis are still under consideration. No agreement
with any other sanctioning body has been reached at this time."

Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway
Set to Host NDRL Bluegrass Nationals!
26, 2013) After being shuttered
for nearly 3 years, the 3/8ths of a mile Kentucky Lake Motor
Speedway located in Calvert City, Kentucky is set to roar
back to life in March of 2014. Under the new ownership of
two Kentucky businessmen, Ronnie Jones and Jim Hale, the track
is ready to jump back into the national Dirt Late Model spotlight
by hosting the fledgling National Dirt Racing League for a
huge weekend of racing action. The NDRL's Bluegrass Nationals
will be another of the series' signature events which will
kick-off with an open practice on Thursday, March 27th followed
by 2 full Super Late Model events on Friday and Saturday,
March 28th and 29th at the Western Kentucky oval. Friday's
event will pay $7,500 to win while Saturday's finale will
pay $12,500 to the race winner.
"We have been looking around at
everything and talking with everyone as we go into this new
adventure. When Kelley (Carlton - NDRL Director) came up and
visited with us he answered all of our questions and helped
us address some issues that didn't even relate to their event.
That was one of the things we liked. These guys are looking
to build a relationship and a situation where we both help
each other. We are really excited about bringing the NDRL
to Kentucky and to all of our race fans. We are going to try
to get a couple of events in beforehand to make sure we have
all of our logistics and staffing needs in place. It is an
ambitious event but we are ambitious so as long as we can
get some good weather I believe we can get this thing going
and make it big." said Kentucky Lake co-owner Ronnie
"I could not be happier to be
working with Ronnie and Jim. They are great guys and two very
smart businessmen. We have already built a good relationship
and we are ready to help them put Kentucky Lake back on the
Dirt Late Model map. I really am excited to see everything
that they have planned for Kentucky Lake. Ronnie and Jim have
big plans and dreams for the place. They have such a nice
facility and the location is excellent. They had a very nice
gem when they bought the place and now they are putting the
polish on it. I know I speak for John (Kennedy - NDRL Owner)
when I say I am proud to have them as a part of 2014 family
of racetracks." said NDRL Series Director Kelley Carlton.
