Corona, CA (April 30, 2009) – Dixie Chopper and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series have come together to announce a new driver contingency program. The Dixie Chopper Challenge will give away a new Dixie Chopper at the Lucas Oil Stadium during the 2009 LOLMDS Awards Banquet; Dixie Chopper will give a new mower to the top driver in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series 2009 televised events.

"Dixie Chopper is again proud to be a part of the popular Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series," Dixie Media Marketing Manager Rick Judy said. "We appreciate the excellent exposure Dixie Chopper receives through this terrific race series and its skilled drivers as they race to mow down the competition. We look forward to dropping the green flag on another thrilling racing season that will again culminate in the announcement of the Dixie Chopper Challenge winner."

The Dixie Chopper Challenge will base its standings on points earned by drivers with perfect attendance during each of the televised events in the ’09 season. The driver earning the most points in all of the TV events, while maintaining perfect attendance, will win a new Dixie Chopper. To be eligible to win the new Dixie Chopper, drivers must mention the Dixie Chopper Challenge during television interviews at each event. Each driver must display Dixie Chopper decals throughout the season.

“We enjoy our long-standing relationship with Dixie Chopper and Rick Judy.  They are an integral part of our series and I would like to thank everyone at Dixie Chopper for being so involved with our series.  It’s sponsors like them that keep us going in the right direction year after year,” stated Series Director Ritchie Lewis, “I know how excited I was when I found out about the Dixie Chopper Challenge, and I am sure our drivers will be just as excited by this announcement as I was.”
