In less then a week the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Models thunder back into the Lucas Oil Speedway for their second and final appearance this season. Waiting at the gate they will find the top drivers from the O'Reilly MLRA presented by Lucas Oil Products.
"It's always a blast when the Lucas Oil Late Models and MLRA guys get together," said Kevin Greven, General Track Manager. "And they all love to come to Wheatland."
The rain marred SuperClean Diamond Nationals marked their last appearance and even though the Speed Channel broadcast event ended with great racing, few of the drivers left satisfied.
"These guys are old school racers," added Greven, "it's not just about a big purse, it's about putting on a show for the fans. The Diamond Nats was an awesome race, but having to postpone it a day really affected the usual fan count."
Several drivers have expressed their desire to get back to the Diamond of Dirt Tracks and do what they do best, putting on a killer show, in front of a packed house. Last season the Citizen's Memorial Hospital Late Model Showdown was the top attended event of the 2007 season, this Saturday July 19th, will be no exception.
"Mother Nature has been tough on race tracks, racers and fans this season," ended Greven. "From the fan standpoint, I think they are all ready for a big race and nice weather. If we get the weather, the Lucas Boys and the O'Reilly MLRA will definitely fill the bill. It could be standing room only."
