Story By: LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL DIRT SERIES – BATAVIA, OH – The traditional double-header weekend for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is now a triple-header with the addition of the previously postponed Smoky Mountain Speedway, to the familiar weekend of trips to The Red Clay at Woodstock – Historic Dixie Speedway and Rome International Speedway.
Unfortunately, due to the torrential rain currently falling and an unfavorable forecast for Friday, Smoky Mountain Speedway and Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series officials cancelled the Mountain Moonshine Classic.
The event will not be made up. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to Smoky Mountain Speedway in 2022.
Now, the series’ focus shifts to Dixie Speedway, a 3/8-mile semi-banked, clay oval, located in Woodstock, Ga.
The Lucas Oil Dixie Shootout on Saturday, October 9th will feature a complete program of: Hot Laps, Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $15,000-to-win main event for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
Pit gates open at 2:00 PM with General Admission gates opening at 5:00 PM. Hot laps are set to begin at 6:45 PM.
Recognized as the “World’s Fastest Half-Mile Oval,” Rome International Speedway is in Northwest Georgia at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains – just a short drive from Dixie Speedway.
On Sunday night, October 10th the Lucas Oil Rome Showdown will include Hot Laps, Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main event.
