ABBOTTSTOWN, Pa. – For the first time in 15 years, the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series is returning to Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway.
Scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 20, the second annual Billy Vacek/Huey Wilcoxon Memorial, presented by Viper Motorsports, will be a $12,000-to-win, $1,000-to-start event co-sanctioned by the World of Outlaws and the ULMS Racing Series.
“I was really excited when we had the chance to team up with ULMS and Viper Motorsports to bring the World of Outlaws Late Models back to Lincoln Speedway,” said Series Director Casey Shuman. “It’s one of the most famed tracks in Central Pennsylvania and I know our drivers will put on a great show for the fans. This will be a great start to our four-race trip out east.”
In last year’s inaugural Billy Vacek Memorial, 2011 World of Outlaws champion Rick Eckert topped a 39-car field for a $6,000 score at Lincoln. In two weeks, Eckert will be among the many expected entries at the second annual race where the winnings have doubled to $12,000.
The newly-added August 20 date at Lincoln Speedway now creates a four-day weekend of racing for the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series. After Thursday’s show at Lincoln, it’s on to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, Aug. 21, then Sharon Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 22, and finally Eriez Speedwayon Sunday, Aug. 23.
