The Lucas Oil Speedway is considered by Industry Insiders to be one of the top five Race Tracks in the Nation. Located in Wheatland Missouri, about an hour north of Springfield and only about an hour and a half fromKansas City. Referred to by many as "The Diamond of Race Tracks" and it certainly lives up to that title. Twenty one luxury suites, a giant HD Jumbo Tron Screen, Musco Sports lighting, a Bose Stadium Sound System, Go Kart Track for all ages, The Diamond Bar, the best track food in the country, and the nicest pits in dirt track racing are just a few of the amenities that set us apart. In 2011 the Inaugural Diamond Drag Boat Nationals made a splash at the Brand New Liquid Quarter Mile, Lake Lucas. Known as the only purpose-built drag boat racing lake in the world, more than 140 drag boats competed in the first ever event.
We host some of the largest dirt track events in the Midwest featuring some of the biggest names in racing including: The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, POWRi Midget National Series, The Lucas Oil Pro-Pulling League, Casey's General Stores USMTS Modifieds, Lucas Oil Drag BoatRacing Series, ASCS Sprint Cars, and The Lucas Oil MLRA.
In addition to the awesome special events, the Lucas Oil Speedway hosts weekly racing featuring the ALPS Food Stores Late Models, the Pitts Homes A-Modifieds, and the Carson's Corner Napa Factory Stocks. This year a fourth class, the DJ’s RV B-Modifieds will be a part of the 2012 Lucas Oil Speedway Weekly Series. The National Race Media has called these shows, "some of the Best Weekly Racin' in the Nation!"
