BATAVIA, Ohio (August 12, 2019) – The elite drivers of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, along with top dirt late model drivers from around the nation, will converge in Batesville, Ark. this weekend.

One of the most highly anticipated events of the season, the 27th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 - Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions is slated for Thursday - Saturday, August 15th - 17th, at Batesville Motor Speedway.

In 2019, the Topless 100 will feature a complete program of Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and a $5,000-to-win main event on Thursday and Friday nights. Drivers will earn points in each of the two preliminary nights that will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s finale. The IMCA Modifieds will also compete in a full program on Thursday and Friday nights, chasing a $1,000 top prize.

Saturday’s festivities will kick off with a driver autograph session at 6:30pm. Hot laps will begin at 8:00pm, followed by consolation events for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
