The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Sunoco Race Fuels have partnered again in 2020 to reward drivers that maintain perfect attendance at all Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned events through May 27th. Drivers with perfect attendance will receive an additional $1,500 cash bonus compliments of Sunoco Race Fuels. This bonus program previously named “Sunoco Road to Wheatland” is now named the “Sunoco Road to East Bay” due to the rescheduling of events in the month of May because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Sunoco Race Fuels is the “Official Fuel” of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and a longtime partner, supporting the premier national tour for super late model dirt racing for over a decade now. Sunoco race Fuels is also the title sponsor of the crown jewel event on the series, the “Sunoco North/South 100” held in August at Florence Speedway in Union, KY every year.
Because of these unusual times during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Lucas Oil Products has introduced the “Lucas Oil Reopening Tour” generously providing the purse for six newly added May events. The first pair of events in May will take place at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO on May 12th & 13th. Following those events will be a pair of events at Golden Isles Speedway May 19th and 20th in Brunswick, GA with the final two events of the Reopening Tour taking place at East Bay Raceway Park on May 26th and 27th. Race teams will be gunning for over $70,000 in purse money, at each venue. These races will pay $7,000 to-win, each night. All races are full series points races, with a five-person limit per team. No fans will be allowed to attend these six events but fans can watch the action LIVE on LucasOilRacing.TV and LIVE on the Series Facebook page.
“We want to thank Sunoco Race Fuels for their continued support of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. They have agreed to continue this special bonus program, rewarding drivers that maintain perfect attendance and support the series through May 27th. The ‘Road to East Bay’ bonus program will give racers additional money in these difficult and unusual times. Sunoco needs to be commended for stepping up and giving generously to the racers, and helping Lucas Oil Products reopen the 2020 season,” stated Wayne Castleberry, Corporate Motorsports Sales and Marketing for Lucas Oil Motorsports.
