It seems like only a few days ago that The World of Outlaw Dirt Late Model Series was announcing that 201 Speedway was on the 2014 season Schedule, then came the announcement of the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Models Series, 201 Speedway was the only track in Kentucky to host both series. It seems like only yesterday that Brandon Kinzer won the first race of the season The Johnny Salyers Memorial presented by the Ray Cook Spring National Series, but it’s been 6 months.

In those six months the track has opened the gates to fans and drivers alike have enjoyed two historic events both paying $10,000 to win the most ever paid out in the history of 201 Speedway with drivers from all over the nation and even Australia, the fans have experienced many thrills, chills, and spills in all four divisions that competed at the track this season

The fans have celebrated with their favorite drivers on the track and have crowned their 2014 season Champions, but as the action on the track has been hot all season long their comes a time in when the track must close it gates for the winter season and begin preparing for the 2015 season, and that time has unfortunately arrived for the 201 Speedway.
