My goal is to win a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event this season and finish in the top ten in championship points. We’ve not had the start to the year we had planned or hoped for, but there is a lot of racing left to do and we are going to work hard, race hard, and hopefully meet our goals. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to run for Rookie of the Year and would like to thank all my help and sponsors for making it possible.”

Hudson O’Neal, the 16-year-old hot-shoe from Martinsville, Indiana, has also committed to contend for the Rookie of the Year title in 2017. O’Neal has been absorbing all things racing since he was born. His father, Don O’Neal remains a pillar on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tour.

When asked why he decided to contend for the Rookie of the Year title in 2017, O’Neal exclaimed, “It's all about making our team better! It's a once in a lifetime chance you get to run for this title and I think we have the team and the resources to make it happen!”

Boom Briggs, a 45-year-old native of Bear Lake, Pennsylvania, joins the list of talents who will compete on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in 2017.

I want to thank all my sponsors for the opportunity.”
