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 | 1993

UMP Late Models returned to headline the weekly Sunday night program, but rain wiped out the track's biggest scheduled event of the season during heat races for a $3,000-to-win Late Model race May 30; the event drew a strong field of 21 entries, many for the first time (including Steve Francis, Doug Ingalls, Ricky Ingalls, Curtis Gattis, Howard Willis, Robbie Starnes, and others). Later in the season, when nearby Dyersburg Speedway closed unexpectedly, the track switched to racing both Saturdays and Sundays each week, but because of low interest, the track returned to Sundays-only after a few weeks.

The track again played a big role in the national UMP title chase by virtue of being one of the few UMP tracks racing on Sundays early and late in the season. Randy Sellars won the national title with Ed Dixon second, and Corey Turner won the UMP rookie of the year title.
