BATAVIA, Ohio – In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials have announced several schedule changes for the month of July.
The events at Deer Creek Speedway on July 9, as well as the July 10-11 Clash at the Plex at Jackson Motorplex have been canceled.
The state of Minnesota was scheduled to begin Phase IV of their Stay Safe Plan, a phased in approach to reopening, on July 1. Unfortunately, Minnesota health officials have delayed that phase.
With that, track and series officials believe they would lack the income needed to meet the financial burden of the events.
In place of these of events, Florence Speedway in Union, Ky. will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for a doubleheader on July 10-11. Each night will be a complete program of time trials, heat races, B-mains, and a 50-lap, $12,000-to-win main event.
Tickets for these events will be limited. Additional information, including purchasing advanced tickets will be released in the coming days.
From there, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will visit 300 Raceway in Farley, Iowa on Monday, July 13 for the Truck Country 50. That event will be a complete program of time trials, heat races, B-mains, and a 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main event.
The Farley race will be followed by a stop at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill., then a doubleheader weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., and a three-night stop at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb.
The I-80 stretch, July 23-25, will be headlined by the prestigious Silver Dollar Nationals, paying a whopping $53,000-to-win.
