FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wheatland, Missouri (May 4th 2020) - After numerous postponed attempts to launch the start of the 2020 racing season, Lucas Oil MLRA officials announced today that the series will return to action on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 12th - 13th, at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO. MLRA teams will join forces with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) in a special co-sanctioned "Re-opening Tour" at the Diamond of dirt tracks that will feature two complete shows each paying $7,000 to win and $800 to start.
This two day affair will be an addition to the originally published schedule for the MLRA series, with drivers competing for valuable MLRA championship points in both events. MLRA member drivers will be credited with series points based on their finishing position in the main event. (Ex. The top MLRA driver finishes 5th, they will be credited with 5th place points, the second highest MLRA driver finishes 12th, they will be credited with 12th place points, etc.).
Both events will be held without fans permitted in the grandstands, but fans will be able to tune in and catch every lap live via LucasOilRacing.tv, and also free on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Facebook Page starting at 7:30PM ET/6:30PM CT.
Race Teams will have a chance to knock of the rust before taking the green during a practice session on Monday evening May 11th. The practice session will be not be open to the public.
The MLRA opener which had been scheduled for the Stuart International Speedway Presented by Conrad's Pillow Pets and Choice Inc. this Wednesday May 6th, has been postponed due to COVID-19 mandates currently in place in the state of Iowa. In addition, events for May 8th and 9th at the Davenport Speedway and West Liberty Raceway have also been postponed at this time.
