MULINO, Ore. – Justin Duty has announced plans to tackle the Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Ass’n schedule next year.
“I’d like to follow a series, and with me working full-time for the family business I can’t commit to a national tour,” Duty said. “It’s much more feasible for me to travel a weekend here and there throughout the summer rather than nine months out of the year.
“They say to be the best, you have to race with the best. The competition on the MLRA is among the strongest of any regional tour. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to further my career in racing. A special thanks goes out to family, my crew and all of my sponsors for everything that they do to make this possible.”
During his MLRA stint, Duty and his Don Frank Floors No. 15 XR1 Rocket Chassis/Pro Power Racing Engine Super Late Model will operate from the Moscow, Iowa, located shop of fellow racer, Nick Marolf.
Duty will kick off his pursuit of the Lucas Oil MLRA Rookie of the Year, April 9th-11th at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Mo.). The seventh annual Spring Nationals will begin with an practice on Thursday, followed by back-to-back $3,000-to-win programs on Friday-Saturday.
