BATAVIA, OHIO (July 12, 2018) – The stars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series are approaching one of their toughest stretches of the season as they head to the Midwest.

Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the second time this season on Friday, July 13th. The action-packed event includes a complete show of: Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $12,000-to-win main event. The Open Wheel Modifieds and B-Modifieds will also be in action on Friday, both chasing a $1,000 top prize.

Josh Richards returns as the defending NAPA Know How 50 Champion, after dominating the event in 2017. Richards fought off a late-race challenge by Tim McCreadie, who came home in second place, after starting in seventh. Don O’Neal charged to a third-place finish, with Brian Shirley edging out Jimmy Owens on the final lap to finish fourth.

In addition, the Open Wheel Modifieds will be in action with a full program, capped by a $1,000-to-win feature.

In 2017, Josh Richards completed the weekend sweep with his first-ever victory at Lucas Oil Speedway. Richards snared the lead from Jimmy Owens with just eight laps remaining and went unchallenged from there for the win. Owens later suffered mechanical issues that resulted in a fifteenth place finish. Don O’Neal finished second, followed by Darrell Lanigan, Hudson O’Neal, and Jesse Stovall.
