Lucas Oil Speedway Hopes to Open 2018 Season Saturday
Most everyone has been frustrated by the cold, wet April weather. Racing drivers and fans are no exception.
"It's been tough," USRA B-Mod driver Taylor Moore said. "The main thing is you want to try and get comfortable with the weather and the car working together as one. It's been hard to do that.
"We want sunshine," Moore added. "It's hard to get into a good rhythm when you race one week and are off the next."
After two postponements, Lucas Oil Speedway again will try this Saturday to open the 2018 Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series. It's $uper $aver $pecial Night Presented by OnMedia/Dish/DirectTV with discounted admission for action in all four divisions - Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds, Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods, Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models and Big O Tires Street Stocks.
The USRA B-Mods will be featured, running a special 25-lap, $750-to-win main event. Gates are set to open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 and racing at 7:05.
"We're hoping Mother Nature gives us a nice weekend for a change," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "No one hates to call off races more than I do, but it's just been really miserable the last two weeks. So hopefully our luck is about to change and we'll see everyone on Saturday."
