TULSA, Okla. (March 1, 2017) Exciting news for race fans in Missouri broke earlier this year when it was announced that Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. would resume operation in 2017. Dormant since 2012, the track will feature weekly racing as well as several special events, which includes four nights of competition with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.

The first date for the ASCS Warriors at the Eldon, Mo. oval is June 24, which pairs with the series debut at Heartland Park Topeka the day before.

Joining the Red, White, and Blue Weekend, action returns on July 1 with Double X Speedway the following night. The final appearance of the season will be September 16, just ahead of the season finale at the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway the following weekend.

At this time, any updates on the track can be found on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/lakeozarkspeedway/.

The 2017 lineup of events for the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps kicks off on March 26 with a showdown between the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at the "Historic Half-Mile" Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia.
