“I believe our new tire rule has been key in the competition we have seen this year,” said Series Director, Ritchie Lewis. The LOLMDS instituted a new tire rule back in March at Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway and since then no driver has won a race starting from the front row. “We have had six different winners in the first ten races, and we have a tie for the points lead. The Izzo family has promoted every LOLMDS event we have had at LaSalle Speedway and we always look forward to coming back there.”
With the cancellation last month of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at Hartford (Mich.), the Izzo Family decided to expand the Spring Shootout, an annual event at the track.
“We have wanted to make the Spring Shootout into a must-see event for a while, said Izzo. “We hope Mother Nature cooperates with us and the fans will get to see one of the best weekends of racing in Illinois this year.”
