Wheatland, Missouri - In the first official night of racing at the Diamond of Dirt Tracks, the Lucas Oil MLRA put on a show to remember! Chad Simpson of Mt. Vernon, Iowa held off Will Vaught of Crane, Missouri and hometown favorite Eric Turner who raced from 17th to finish third. In the first appearance of the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds, Matt Dotson claimed the win over Jon Sheets and Terry Schultz. The Carson's Corner NAPA Factory Stocks feature did not disappoint with an exciting open to the 2013 Season. Burl Woods ended the night in Victory Lane ahead of Johnny Coats and Chip Shaddox. 

Spring Thunder featuring the Lucas Oil MLRA is a fan favorite to kick off the season of racing at Lucas Oil Speedway. An extra special night for the track and the series,  as this was the first race since Lucas Oil purchased the series from Harriett and Allen (Cowboy) Chancellor. Series Director and Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager, Dan Robinson, pulled double duty and produced an awesome night of racing.  



Chad Simpson and team in Victory Lane


Chad Simpson was fast from the outset of Saturday's Lucas Oil MLRA feature, but it wasn't until lap thirty-five he took the lead from Jesse Stovall. The pair raced to the flag stand off of turn four and Simpson never looked back. Will Vaught led the opening eleven laps, before Stovall was able to work to the front in lapped traffic. Stovall slowed late in the race with a flat left rear, which ended his shot a solid finish. The race's final caution waved with just three laps to go. On the restart it was smooth sailing for Simpson as Vaught and seventeenth starting Eric Turner dueled for second. Vaught held the position at the checkers, with Turner scored in third.

Tony Jackson Jr. debuted a new Club 29 Rocket, and earned the Casey's General Stores Hard Charger award as he moved from twentieth to fourth.

Matt Dotson of Clark, MO wheeled his way to Victory Lane in the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds. All four of Saturday night's heat race winners were in the top five. Dotson was followed to the checkers by Neveda, Missouri's Jon Sheets. Sheets held off a charging Terry Schultz and John Allen for the second place finishing position. Jason Pursley rounded out the top five with an impressive night following a heat race win. The Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds will be back in action Saturday night, April 20th for the Lucas Oil Championship Series Season Opener. Look for an impressive field each week competing for Lucas Oil Championship points and USRA National Points.


Matt Dotson takes Pitts Homes USRA Modified Win

The Carson's Corner NAPA Factory Stocks never disappoint, putting on some of the best races and exciting finishes at Lucas Oil Speedway. Saturday night paid a special $750 to Win by Elite Auto Repair and John Brooks of Brooks Automotive. Burl Woods is no stranger to Victory Lane and led a field of charging drivers to the finish line. Woods looked impressively smooth as he cruised around the 3/8 mile. Johnny Coats finished second. Chip Shaddox worked his way up through the field to record a top three finish. Early in the race a heated battle for second through fifth kept fans on the edge of their seats. Ted Welschmeyer from Tebbetts, MO finished fourth and Brian Schutt completed the top five.
