Lucas Oil Late Model Series - Port Royal Speedway

BATAVIA, OH – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series returns to Port Royal Speedway for three days of the Rumble by the River. This will be the largest three-day purse in the history of the Port Royal Speedway for the Late Model division, with a total of over $200,000 on the line.

Thursday, August 26th is $10,000-to-win for 30 laps; Friday, August 27th is $12,000-to-win for 40 laps; and 50 laps on Saturday, August 28th that will pay $30,000-to-win, twice what the finale paid in 2020. A new addition for 2021, there will be a 20 lap, $2,500-to-win non-qualifier race for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series drivers on Saturday, August 28th.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will be joined by Limited Late Models on Thursday. The Mid-Atlantic Modified division will serve as support with full shows on both Friday and Saturday.

In 2020, the three days of the Rumble by the River saw three different winners, each a major force to be reckoned with: Tim McCreadie, Inclement Weather, and Kyle Larson. Both completed A-Main events saw plenty of action and left fans on their feet at the half-mile oval better known as “The Speed Palace.” In Lucas Oil Victory Lane McCreadie said, “This is as close to home as I get. You could tell these fans are excited, I am happy!”

The pit gates will close at 3:30 PM ET and reopen at 4:00 PM ET each day. The general admission gate will also open at 4:00 PM ET each day with a 6:00 PM ET driver’s meeting, 6:30 PM ET Hot Laps.
