Hockett-McMillin Memorial next: Lucas Oil Speedway is back in action with the 13th annual Jesse Hockett-Daniel McMillin Memorial, featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car division and the POWRi WAR Sprints, Sept. 14-16.

The pre-entry list closed at 94 for the ASCS winged sprints and officials have decided to split the field the first two nights, with $3,000-to-win features culminating those programs. Drivers will earn points each time they hit the track Thursday and Friday nights to help determine their starting position for the final night.

Event points are awarded each time a driver takes a competitive green flag. These points are used to set the field for Saturday and are not used to set lineups during a preliminary night. A driver may not switch nights once they pull onto the track to qualify.

Following the completion of Friday’s program, event points will be totaled with the Top eight locked in, straight up, into Saturday’s A-Feature. All other drivers will be lined up into four Last Chance Qualifiers on Saturday. Any ties in event points will be broken by the driver with the faster qualifying time.

The Hockett-McMillin Memorial recognizes the legacy of Jesse Hockett, from Warsaw, Mo., who was a star in both the winged and non-wing sprint divisions when he lost his life in a shop accident in 2010. His cousin and crew chief, Daniel McMillin, was killed in an automobile accident in 2006.

Wayne Johnson won last year's ASCS Winged Sprint portion of the event while Chase Randall captured the POWRi WAR Sprint feature.
