|The Late Model division is the premiere class ran
at Rocky Top Raceway. These cars weigh only
2,300 pounds and can make up to 900
horsepower. The Late Models are the fastest of
the weekly divisions at Rocky Top Raceway and
produce exciting racing week in and week out.
The RTR Late Model class draws top racers from
Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia on a weekly
basis Many of the nations top Late Model drivers
compete in RTR's special event races.
|The AMRA Modified division consistently features
the highest car counts of any of the classes week
in and week out at RTR. The class is also one of
the most competitive classes at RTR with close,
exciting racing each week. AMRA Modifieds make
between 650-750 horsepower, but run on eight
inch tires. The small tires make the class unique
in taking out the big engine advantage and put
things more into the drivers hand. The class has
been sanctioned by AMRA since 2010.
|The Bomber division at Rocky Top Raceway
features "racin' the way it ought to be." Bombers
are perhaps the purest cars that run at RTR as
they are older street cars which have several
modifications to make them a race car. The
Bombers may not go as fast as the Late Models
or AMRA Modifieds, but they feature great,
competitive racing. This is a great class for
beginners or somebody looking to have fun but
not spend a lot of money in doing so.
|The Mod Lite division is perhaps the most unique
weekly class at Rocky Top Raceway. The cars
are smaller scale versions of the Big Block
Modifieds run in the northeast and they run on
1000 cc or 1200 cc motorcycle engines. This is
one of the most economical classes at RTR as the
cars only burn about a gallon and a half of fuel
each night and most drivers run the same set of
tires the entire season. The Mod Lites are one of
the most exciting classes at Rocky Top Raceway.
