WHEATLAND, Mo. – Lucas Oil MLRA officials recently made some schedule changes to the remaining dates on the 2014 schedule.
Series and track officials from both Thunder Hill Speedway in Mayetta, Kan., and Outlaw Motorsports Park in Muskogee, Okla., have mutually agreed to forgo their scheduled dates.
Thunder Hill Speedway was scheduled to host the series Aug. 23. The series worked to find a companion race for that date on Aug. 22 and nothing emerged. Outlaw Motorsports Park had a two day race booked for Sept. 19-20.
“We really take a hard look at putting two dates together for every race weekend,” said Race Director Ernie Leftwich. “We aren’t always able to do that, but for some of our dates it’s a must. We hate to lose our second date at Thunder Hill, but it’s really in the best interest of all involved. Outlaw is a new ownership group for us to work with, and we had a couple of outstanding races there back in May. They have had a lot of big events this season, and it just wasn’t in the cards for us to race there again this year.”
The Lucas Oil MLRA shifts its focus to Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Neb., Aug. 8-9.
