Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series 2017 Schedule Revealed

Series To Make Fourth Appearance At Macon IL Speedway

WAYCROSS, GA (October 26, 2016) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series – widely acknowledged as the nation’s premier dirt late model tour – announced a record-breaking 2017 schedule, including a fourth visit to Macon Speedway, in Macon, IL

The ambitious 2017 schedule, which includes 54 events at 35 different venues across 22 states – begins with the February 10th-11th Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway, and concludes on October 20th-21st at Portsmouth Raceway Park for the 37th Annual Dirt Track World Championship, which is set to offer a $100,000 top prize for the third consecutive year.

The series will head to the mighty Macon IL Speedway on Saturday, April 29.  It will mark the fourth visit in series history.  Last year, the race was postponed on its April date to Tuesday, July 26.  Amazingly, the makeup event drew the biggest crowd of the year and provided great racing throughout the St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part 100.  Two drivers have found victory lane over the first three visits: Bobby Pierce in 2014/2016 and Jimmy Owens in 2015.

The 2017 Lucas Oil schedule will feature 15 events that will pay $12,000-to-win, along with 11 crown jewel events that will pay $20,000-to-win (or more). The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will sanction some of most prestigious dirt late model events of the season, including: Bad Boy 98 ($20,000-to-win); Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 ($30,000-to-win); Clash at the Mag ($20,000-to-win); Silver Dollar Nationals ($53,000-to-win); Sunoco North/South 100 ($50,000-to-win); COMP Cams Topless 100 ($40,000-to-win); Hillbilly Hundred ($25,000-to-win); Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals ($40,000-to-win); Jackson 100 ($20,000-to-win); Pittsburgher 100 ($20,000-to-win); and the season finale – Dirt Track World Championship ($100,000-to-win).

Four tracks on the 2017 schedule will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the first time, including: Port Royal (PA) Speedway on April 23rd, Luxemburg (WI) Speedway on May 19th, Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, MN on May 20th, and Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, SD on July 20th. In addition, Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, TN returns to the series docket for the first time since 2009 on March 30th, 2017.

“We are thrilled to release our 2017 schedule. We’re extremely honored to have such great relationships with our promoters, from all over the country, that have worked so diligently to help us get the schedule to completion. We feel that we have the best show in dirt late model racing, and I can’t thank our promoters, our staff, drivers, car owners, sponsors, and of course, our great fans enough for their continued support. Lucas Oil Products has put together a great infrastructure for making the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series the best dirt late model national touring series in the country,” stated Rick Schwallie, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director.
