ozens of short tracks and paved drag strips racing everything from stock cars to lawn mowers to motorcycles have come and gone over a span of almost 100 years across our region, and some still hold events each week in front of thousands of fans and competitors.

Our motorsports pages will be an evolving source of archived information, history, and milestones for the sport in Southeast Missouri.

Caruthersville Speedway | 1992

IMCA Modifieds joined the track's weekly lineup before being dropped in June because of low turnout; UMP Late Models continued to headline the weekly schedule every Sunday. Late Models capped off the season with the biggest-paying event in the track's history, the $3,000-to-win unsanctioned Bootheel Fall 40, which attracted 40 entries from nine states. The track moved its weekly events to Fridays starting in early June, but that lasted just one week because of overwhelming driver and fan response, and events were moved back to Sundays.
