BATAVIA, OH (October 20, 2021) – Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials are excited to announce the addition of Sarver, Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway to the 2022 schedule. The Big River Steel Firecracker 100 on June 23rd – 25th will now boast a $50,000 paycheck to the winner.

Lernerville Speedway’s Firecracker 100 weekend has become one of the most high-profile events in the world of dirt late model racing. There will be a record high purse of over $210,000 at the 16th running of the Firecracker 100 weekend, thanks to the event’s new partnership with Big River Steel and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. This prestigious three-day racing tradition will now be the richest event of any kind ever held at the Lernerville Speedway.

“The Firecracker 100 has become a cornerstone in Dirt Late Model racing, and we’re excited to be a part of this lucrative event in 2022,” Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director Rick Schwallie said. “Thanks to the devotion of Lernerville Speedway and our great partnership with Big River Steel, we’re able to increase the total purse for the weekend by over $33,000. We look forward to delivering the excitement of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series to the fans of Lernerville Speedway in 2022.”

A full program of racing is scheduled each of the three nights on the 4/10-mile dirt oval located 45 minutes Northeast of Pittsburgh, PA. Opened in October 1967, Lernerville Speedway has been enlarged three times; from a small quarter to a large quarter, then to a 3/8-mile, and finally to its current size. Seating has also been increased several times to now accommodate approximately 12,000 in the stands.

Camping spaces for the 2022 Big River Steel Firecracker 100 are on sale now and advance tickets will go on sale before the end of the year. For more information on Lernerville Speedway, please visit www.Lernerville.com.
