Wheatland, Missouri (September 27, 2016) – With just days to go before the scheduled running of the Lucas Oil MLRA’s event at the Missouri State Fair Speedway, promoter Gerry Olson has cancelled the event. Citing a lack of guaranteed car count (27 attended a day race there in mid-April) Olson opted to cancel not only Late Models, but the ASCS Warrior Region event as well.

It will make our season finale held at Lucas Oil Speedway that much bigger!” [click to continue…]
