With Lucas Oil Speedway’s Open Test and Tune less than three weeks away, it’s “Roll Call” time for those planning to race in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series in 2023.
Drivers are invited to post a photo of their car – in the comments section on the same “roll call” post as this story – on the Lucas Oil Speedway Facebook page. Not only will it be a fun way to look ahead to the new season, it’s a chance to win one free season crew pass in each of the weekly divisions.
Drivers should post a photo of their car, plus their name and division in which they are competing. The photo receiving the most “likes” in the Hermitage Lumber ULMA Late Models, Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds, Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods and O’Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars will earn that driver the free crew pass for the upcoming season.
The contest will conclude on Friday, March 17th – day before the Test and Tune session is scheduled.
“We’ve done this the last couple of years and it was a lot of fun,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “It’s a chance for the drivers to show off their cars and for the fans to get an idea of who’s coming to race with us in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series – and also gives the drivers a chance to win the crew pass.”
Lucas Oil Speedway’s schedule begins with the Test and Tune set for March 18 from 2-6 p.m.. The Big Adventure Weekly Racing Series Weekly Opener kicks off the season 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. The Hermitage Lumber Late Models will be running a special 25-lap $1,000-to-win featured event.
