Wheatland, Missouri (June 20, 2018) - Following an exciting Midseason Championships program last week, the second half of the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series begins Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

National Wild Turkey Federation Race to Save the Hunt Night will find the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds in the spotlight for a 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event. The Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models, Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods and Big O Tires Street Stocks also will resume chase of season championships.

The dirt-track program is sandwiched between a big weekend on the off road course next door. Those purchasing tickets to the day-time GEICO Off Road Shootout Presented by General Tire or a weekend pass to the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series action will gain free admission to the oval-track action.

"This is one of our biggest weekends of the season and Saturday is probably our busiest racing day of 2018 with action from early in the morning until late at night," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "We hope everyone will come out and spend the day with us and take in all the action as we have plenty of food, drink and shade.

"We had some terrific racing and memorable finishes to last week's dirt-track action as we crowned midseason champions. I expect it to pick right back up where it left off in all four divisions."

No points chase is more competitive than the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods. Taylor Moore made a last-lap pass of JC Morton last Saturday to capture third place in the feature and give him the first-half points title. Moore, of Bois D'Arc, Missouri, begins the second half four points clear of Morton with Mike Striegel just 11 behind.

Darron Fuqua of Mayetta, Kansas, is atop not only the Lucas Oil Speedway Pitts Homes USRA Modified points, by 44 over Lance Town, but also leads USRA national points. Four-time feature winner David Hendrix of Waynesville tops Big O Tires Street Stocks points by 44 over Brian Schutt. Aaron Marrant of Richmond takes a 66-point lead in the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models over Josh Poe.

Gates at the dirt track will open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 and opening ceremonies at 7.
