BATAVIA, OHIO (October 29, 2018) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is proud to announce the 2019 schedule, with a lineup featuring a record-breaking 65 feature events. The ambitious schedule is set to visit 37 different venues across 22 states, showcasing the talents of the nation’s top dirt late model drivers along the way.
The 2019 tour will launch with nine events during Georgia-Florida Speedweeks, including February 1st-2nd at Golden Isles Speedway; February 4th-9th at East Bay Raceway Park; and February 10th at Bubba Raceway Park. As is tradition, the 2019 championship battle will conclude October 18th-19th at the 39th Annual Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park.
Three tracks on the 2019 tour will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the first time, including: 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tenn. on April 5th, Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind. on September 20th, and Raceway 7 in Monroe Center, Ohio on October 4th.

On May 17th, for the first time since May 2008, the tour will visit Farley Speedway in Farley, Iowa.
The 2019 campaign will be highlighted by a generous number of the industries richest events, including: Lucas Oil Speedway’s Show-Me 100 ($30,000 to win); I-80 Speedway’s Silver Dollar Nationals ($53,000); Florence Speedway’s North/South 100 ($50,000); Batesville Motor Speedway’s Topless 100 ($40,000); Mansfield Motor Speedway’s Dirt Million ($100,000+); Tyler County Speedway’s Hillbilly Hundred ($30,000); Knoxville Raceway’s Late Model Nationals ($40,000); Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway’s Pittsburgher 100 ($20,000); and Portsmouth Raceway Park’s Dirt Track World Championship ($100,000).

“The 2019 schedule will offer drivers and teams the test of conquering a mix of traditional favorites and all-new venues – while providing race fans around the world the most thrilling events of the season,” Schwallie added. “None of this would be possible without the infrastructure that Lucas Oil provides and all the support of our tracks, promoters, marketing partners, race teams, car owners, and fans.”
