Lucas Oil Speedway seeks Anthem singers, car or motorcycle clubs, vendors for 2023 season
WHEATLAND, MO. (Jan. 4, 2023) - With the turn of the calendar to a new year, the countdown to the 2023 Lucas Oil Speedway season is underway. As in past seasons, prospective National Anthem singers are invited to show off their abilities to help kick off the racing action.
“Opening ceremonies are traditionally a big part of our race nights,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “One driver each of our Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series divisions slowly circles the track with an American flag as the Anthem is performed. It’s a tradition that kicks off the official racing program.
“I know we have a lot of talented singers in our part of the country and we would love to have them on hand to help us get the race-night started by performing the Anthem. We look forward to hearing from them before our season begins in mid-March.”
Those interested in applying can submit a demo recording to Lucas Oil Speedway administrative assistant Lisa Lorton by email at Lisa@lucasoilspeedway.com.
There also are other ways for fans and groups to get involved in the action. Those include:
Car, Motorcycle Clubs: Another activity that’s been popular over the years is Car Clubs or Motorcycle Groups to show off their vehicles during a night at the races.
The speedway will publicize the appearance in pre-race press releases the week of the event. Clubs and their members need to arrive by 4 p.m. on race day as a group to set up on the Midway, behind the main grandstands.
Vendor spots: There also is room on the Midway for non-food and non-drink vendors throughout the season where businesses can sell their products.
Booth spaces are available in 10 x 10 foot, 10 x 20 and 10 x 30 sizes, with or without electric. There are spots available for one-day shows, plus two-day and three-day events. Prices start at $150 for the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series events.
“Vendor spaces on the Midway, which has high foot traffic throughout the evening, is a great way for businesses to market their products to race fans,” Danny Lorton said. “Now is the time to reserve a space, particularly if you have a specific race date in mind.”
Vendor applications can be found on the speedway’s website along with more details on spaces. For more information, contact the speedway office at (417) 282-5984.
Season openers: Lucas Oil Speedway's schedule begins with an open Test and Tune set for March 18 followed by the Big Adventure Weekly Racing Series Weekly Opener on March 25. Classes in action include the Hermitage Lumber Late Models, Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds, O'Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars, and the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods.
