Lucas Oil Late Model Stars Ready for Silver Dollar Nationals!

BATAVIA, OH – The nation’s fastest growing crown jewel event, now boasting a $53,000 top prize, will take place this weekend at I-80 Speedway. The 7th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals is set for this Thursday-Saturday, July 21st-23rd. The largest auto racing event in the state of Nebraska is co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Association.

 

It is customary for I-80 Speedway to provide some of the most thrilling, door-to-door racing action, lap after lap. Along with the nation’s elite dirt late model teams, the United States Modified Touring Series will bring the best of the best in dirt modifieds to tackle the 4/10-mile oval.

 

This year’s blockbuster event will get underway on Thursday, July 21st with an open practice for the LOLMDS/Lucas Oil MLRA and United States Modified Touring Series competitors. Thursday night’s action also includes a complete program for the Malvern Bank Super Late Models, NE 360 Sprints, and B-Mods.




 

Friday night’s preliminary action is highlighted by two thrilling rounds of heat race action for the LOLMDS/Lucas Oil MLRA, and the USMTS. Passing points from each round will determine the line-ups for Saturdaynight’s events.

 

On Saturday night, B-Mains for the LOLMDS/Lucas Oil MLRA, and the USMTS will be held – plus the $3,000-to-win Belt Bash non-qualifiers race. The top-three finishers of the Belt Bash have the choice of keeping their $3,000 winnings, or forfeiting their earnings to start in the main event. The USMTS will chase a $5,000 top prize in the 40-lap main event before the 80-lap Silver Dollar Nationals finale takes center stage.
