Hockett/McMillin Memorial Set For Sept. 22-24
WHEATLAND, Mo. — Lucas Oil Speedway will host the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial for the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series Sept. 22-24.
A staple on the Lucas Oil ASCS schedule with a single-night event in recent years, this year’s stop atop the three-eighths-mile dirt oval will be a multi-night affair in remembrance of Jesse Hockett and his cousin Daniel McMillin.
After a practice session Sept. 22, two full nights of Lucas Oil ASCS competition will be held Sept. 23-24. While this year’s Hockett/McMillin Memorial at Lucas Oil Speedway will be a multi-night event for the first time, four previous versions of the event have taken place as single-night cards at other tracks.
Double X Raceway in California, Mo., hosted the inaugural Daniel McMillin Memorial in 2007 before the event shifted to Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., for the next three years.
The event became the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial for the first time in 2010 after Hockett’s tragic death earlier in the year. Reigning Lucas Oil ASCS National champion Jason Johnson topped the initial three editions of the Memorial event, with 2001 series champ Zach Chappell winning the 2010 event.
