Speedweeks, big-purse races anchor Lucas slate

October 10, 2010, 6:32 pm
From staff reports

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (Oct. 9) — Six season-opening Florida Speedweeks races and a stretch of late-summer big-purse events again anchor the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2011 on a 42-race schedule released by the tour Saturday at Dixie Speedway.

The schedule, which is expected to include additional dates, includes visits to first-time series tracks Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pa., and Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, which would host the first Lucas Oil event in Texas.

The foundation of the slate will be familiar to fans of the series in recent years with Lucas Oil (Mo.) Speedway's Show-Me 100, Florence (Ky.) Speedway's North-South 100, Batesville (Ark.) Motor Speedway's Topless 100, West Virginia Motor Speedway's Hillbilly 100 and Brownstown (Ind.) Speedway's Jackson 100 among long-running events that are part of the tour.

Among the schedule's $20,000-to-win events are the April 1-2 event at Lone Star, a July 8-9 event at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss., and the season-ending Dixie Shootout on Oct. 7-8 at Dixie, which returns to a two-day format and doubles the winner's purse from 2010.

One new lucrative event on the schedule is a to-be-named race on May 20-21 at Batesville where the race winner will also receive a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro.
