Lucas Dirt Series Sets 2011 Schedule
CORONA, Calif. — The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will feature a 41-race schedule next year, with the series visiting 19 different states.
The 2011 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series schedule will kick begin with the “Clay by the Bay” Feb. 7 with the six consecutive nights racing during the 35th annual Dart Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Fla.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will again be sanctioning some of the sports biggest events, including the DART Show-Me 100, Comp Cams Topless 100, Sunoco Race Fuels North/South 100 and the 43rd annual Hillbilly Hundred.
The series will be making its first ever visits to Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, and Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, Pa. Every track that hosted the series in 2010 will return to the schedule next season.
“We are glad to have added a pair of new venues to the schedule this year. The 2010 schedule looked great, but this year looks even better,” said Series Director Ritchie Lewis. “We feel that we have the best show in dirt-late-model racing, and I can’t thank our promoters, my staff, our drivers, car owners, sponsors and our fans enough for their support. We have put together a great infrastructure for making the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series the foremost national late model touring series in the country.”
