Wheatland, Missouri (February 20, 2018) - The Lucas Oil Speedway team again will have its championship chili hot and ready for public consumption on Saturday at one of the Ozarks' biggest fundraisers, the 37th annual Sertoma Chili Cook Off.

Area Sertoma Clubs have donated over $2 million dollars toward the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield from this event over the 37-year history.

"Lucas Oil Speedway is proud to be a part of one of the largest fundraisers for children's charities of the year," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "This also is a fun opportunity for our fans to come out and see our staff, talk racing, get info on the upcoming season and taste some of our fabulous chili."

The Sertoma Chili Cook Off runs from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and also includes two stages with some of the area's best bands and musicians.
