WEST PLAINS, Mo. -- After an off-season that was busier than most tracks are during the height of the racing season, the new owners and management of the West Plains Motor Speedway welcomed fans, drivers, crew members, sponsors and their families to the first night of weekly racing on Saturday night, April 2, 2011.

Thousands of hours and dollars later, dozens of renovations and upgrades have given the popular 3/8-mile oval new life.

With a new season and a new fan-friendly, family-oriented atmosphere the track also held its first points race sanctioned by the United States Racing Association with a field of 29 USRA RHS Modifieds signing in to do battle.

Rustin Miller of Houston, Mo., etched his name in the record books as the first winner under the USRA banner as he held off veteran racer Stephen Muilenburg of Sparta for the win.

West Plains drivers Brian Judd and Jason Brigman finished third and fourth, with Brigman coming all the way from the 20th starting spot. Daryl Hay of Doniphan, Mo., rounded out the top-five finishers.

The West Plains Motor Speedway is a 100-acre motorsports facility with Weekly Racing Series events on Saturdays that feature USRA RHS Modifieds, Crate Late Models, B-Mods, Super Stocks, Hobby Stocks and Youth Hobbys.

Motorsports enthusiasts are amazed at the power and excitement of racing on the 3/8-mile red clay oval surrounded by seating that will accommodate more than 12,000 fans. Fans can enjoy the action from their choice of molded contour seating, ground level bleachers or high-rise stadium style seating. On-site camping is available free of charge with clean restrooms, showers, water fill and a dump station for motor homes. Full service food and souvenir concessions are conveniently located within the facility along with acres of free parking.
