WHEATLAND, Missouri (May 27, 2020) - Lucas Oil Speedway has added a second weeknight event during June, this time a June 24 program for the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models and Midwest Mods.


The MLRA Mid-Week Mayhem plus Midwest Mods will have a $3,000-to-win feature for the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Models and $300 to win the Midwest Mods, a popular class around the region that will be running at Lucas Oil Speedway for the first time.


Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said Dallas County Speedway and Springfield Raceway rules packages for the Midwest Mods will be used.


"A lot of the Midwest Mod drivers have been asking about running at Lucas Oil Speedway for a long time and we're excited to give them this opportunity," Lorton said. "Meanwhile, it's a natural fit for the Lucas Oil MLRA after we lost the Spring Nationals to the COVID-19 pandemic back in April."


For the Midwest Mods, along with the $300-to-win, payouts will be:
2nd - $250
3rd - $200
4th - $175
5th - $150
6th - $125
7th - $100
8th - $95
9th - $90
10th - $85
11th - $80
12th - $75
13th - $70
14th - $65
15th - $60
16th through 24th - $55
Non-feature qualifiers - $35


The Midwest Mods must preregister for the event at MyRacePass as registrations will not be taken at the track on the day of the event.


The Wheatland event will kick off four consecutive nights of racing for the MLRA, with a stop at Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma on June 25 before back-to-back nights of the Freedom Classic at Salina Highbanks Speedway in Pryor Creek, Oklahoma, June 26-27.


That stretch will follow a season-opening tripleheader for the MLRA June 12-14 at Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo., Maquoketa (Iowa) Speedway and West Liberty (Iowa) Speedway.
