Busy Weekend Ahead For Lucas Late Models


WAYCROSS, Ga. – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the nation’s best drivers will make a three race swing in three states this weekend to start off the month of April.

The nation’s premier national touring series will make its first stop at the Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss., on Friday, April 4. Then on Saturday, April 5 the series will travel to Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La. The final leg of the three race weekend will find the series traveling to Outlaw Motorsports Park in Muskogee, Okla., on Sunday, April 6.

All three Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events will be complete shows that include Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and a 50-lap feature event, paying $10,000 to win/$800 to start.

In the 2012 edition of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at the Don Cliburn-promoted Jackson Motor Speedway, Don O’Neal withstood a strong field of entrants before a record-setting crowd and took the victory over some very stiff local competition. In addition to the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Jackson Motor speedway, Crates, Modifieds and Super Streets will compete as support classes.

The stars and cars of the series will make their first ever visit to the Ark-La-Tex Speedway that is shaping up to be the biggest event ever held at the Vivian, La., track. The quarter-mile bullring in the state of Louisiana has produced some exciting racing in years past and the great fans in that area are eager to see the nation’s best touring drivers compete against their local and regional heroes. Support classes competing on April 5 include Modifieds, Pro Mods and Factory Stocks.

Another new venue on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series schedule in 2014 is Outlaw Motorsports Park in Muskogee, Okla. The three-eighths-mile track is considered one of the nicest dirt tracks in the great state of Oklahoma. Located just south of Tulsa OK, this event is expected to draw a huge crowd to see the stars and cars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series only visit in the state of Oklahoma. Support class competing on Sunday, April 6 will be the A-Mods.

“The LOLMDS is looking forward to a great weekend of racing in the states of Mississippi, Louisiana and Oklahoma. We’re expecting a strong field of drivers for all three events. The fans are already getting excited and will surely see some great racing each night. The drivers get a chance to earn some good money with three $10,000 to win shows in three days. We’re looking forward to meeting and working with the staff at each track and everyone is eager to get the green flag in the air,”said Ritchie Lewis, director, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
