While this Friday’s debut featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Knoxville Raceway (IA) will have some of the biggest Dirt Late Model stars in America, Lucas Oil, the California-based manufacturer and distributor of oils and additives, wants to present an opportunity for other real-life racers to participate.
“The Open” at Knoxville on Thursday night (April 9) at 8 pm ET will allow other racers to compete for additional starting spots in Friday night’s Late Model Nationals, which will be streamed live on the Lucas Oil Facebook page.
The Thursday “Open” race will utilize the same format as Friday’s big race. There will be a practice session at 7 pm ET, followed by qualifying, heat races and a 100-lap feature beginning at 8 pm ET. Several of the top finishers (exact number TBD) will advance to Friday’s event. The event will use a fixed car set-up so that all drivers are equally matched.
