Poplar Bluff Speedway | 2007

Poplar Bluff Speedway opened its season April 21 with modifieds as its top division after dropping the late model class in the offseason. The track introduced crate late models to the weekly schedule beginning May 19. An event advertised as a MARS vs. UMP late model program in August was canceled during heat races because of lighting malfunctions. The track unexpectedly closed after that, then reopened for a final event Oct. 20.
