Billed as “Tennessee’s Action Track,” 411 Motor Speedway hosted the Spring Sizzler Super Late Model Race that saw Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tennessee, leading all 40 laps. Owens started on the outside pole, getting by the inside front-row starter, Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Georgia, by the time they reached the flagstand.

Logan Roberson, Zack Dohm, David Payne, and Chase King won their respective heat races. Casey Roberts took the six-lap dash with Jimmy Owens following.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the grandstands and concession areas were closed. Dirt on Dirt broadcast the event live to thousands across the country. The 22 car field was set by all 35 entries racing through 2 groups of time trials, fast car dash, and four 10 lap heat races.
