Lucas Oil B-Mod Clash of Champions I, with $3,000 to the winner, to run in conjunction with MLRA Fall Nationals
Wheatland, Missouri (July 20, 2018) - Drivers and fans who have hungered for a major event for B-Mods at Lucas Oil Speedway are getting their wish.
The Lucas Oil B-Mod Clash of Champions I will be held Oct. 11-13 and run in conjunction with the Lucas Oil MLRA Fall Nationals. It will pay $3,000 to win and drivers are encouraged to be prompt in making plans to attend.
"There have been so may B-Mod drivers asking for a special event at Lucas Oil Speedway that we are going to give them their shot," Lucas Oil Speedway assistant General Manager Danny Lorton said. "We will be taking the first 100 pre-entries only. We know that it could draw more, but we want to start with 100 for the first one and then grow it from there, next year."
The Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod division often attracts more than 50 cars in Lucas Oil Speedway's Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series, the largest of the four weekly divisions.
Lorton said the Lucas Oil B-Mod Clash of Champions will be a mixture of USRA B-Mods vs. IMCA Northern Sport Mods. USRA national points will be awarded to the USRA entrants.
Pre-entry fee will be $150 with a deadline of Sept. 21 and $175 from then until the Sept. 28 final deadline. Look for the entry form at LucasOilSpeedway.com or email Lorton at DLorton@lucasoilspeedway.com for more information.

October 11 - Open practice from 6-9 p.m. for B-Mods and MLRA Late Models.
October 12 - Two rounds of B-Mod heat races. Following the second round, the top 14 drivers in passing points will be locked into Saturday night's A Feature. A full Lucas Oil MLRA program will be held.
