BATAVIA, OH (March 19, 2018) - The stars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will tackle three states in three days this week - battling in three action-packed events along the way.

For the first time since 2014, Volunteer Speedway will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, on Thursday, March 22. The 16th Annual Spring Thaw will include a complete program of: Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main event. The Sportsman Late Models and Modified Streets will also be in competition. Dale McDowell held off Mike Marlar in 2014, en route to Victory Lane. John Blankenship finished third, followed by Scott Bloomquist and Jared Landers.

With 12-second lap times and an average speed of 120 mph per lap, the high-banked, 4/10-mile speedplant is sure to provide some of the most exciting, door-to-door racing action this season. Volunteer Speedway is located just off Exit 23 on Interstate 81 in Bulls Gap, TN. For addition information, visit: www.volunteerspeedway.com, or call: (423) 235-5020 (recording only).

The action will shift to Boyd’s Speedway on Friday, March 23rd for the annual “Shamrock.” The event will feature a complete program of: Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $12,000-to-win main event. The Crate Late Models and Sportsman divisions will also be in action. In 2017, Earl Pearson Jr. led all 50 laps to claim the victory over Josh Richards, Jimmy Owens, Tim McCreadie, and Darrell Lanigan.

Boyd’s Speedway will offer a free concert to fans by Georgia native, Cecil Allen Moore that will begin at 5:00pm, prior to on-track action, starting at 7:00pm. Boyd’s Speedway is located at 1481 Scruggs Road in Ringgold, GA. To find more information, visit: www.boydsspeedway.net, or call: (706) 891-6803.
