WAYCROSS, GA – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Paducah International Raceway are gearing up for a huge weekend of racing the first weekend of May. The stars and cars of the LOLMDS will visit the Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Ky., on Saturday, May 3, as the final leg of a big three-race weekend in May for the Spring Showdown. The event is scheduled as a 50-lap feature event paying $10,000 to win and $800 to start. The single-day event will include Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and the 50-lap feature event. Support classes running in conjunction with the LOLMDS at Paducah include Crate Late Models and the Modified divisions.
Paducah International Raceway is owned by Bob Sargent and several NASCAR Stars, including Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kenny Schrader. Sargent recently signed an agreement to lease the track to a new operating group and will continue to run a weekly racing program in 2014. PIR is considered the premier dirt track speedway in Western Kentucky for its fast three-eighths mile track, extensive grandstands and luxury suites. Bob Sargent and the new management group are thrilled to have the LOLMDS visit PIR as part of the three-race weekend.
“We are very excited to have the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the national stars come to PIR this year,” said Bob Sargent, co-owner of PIR and Macon Speedway. “All the great fans in the Paducah, Ky., area and surrounding areas will see a great show and we’re really looking forward to it. The first weekend in May will be filled with some great racing with the series, starting the weekend at Macon Speedway on Thursday and then finishing the weekend at PIR on Saturday. The new management group and everyone associated with PIR are really thrilled to have the LOLMDS come into town on that weekend.”
