Wheatland, Missouri (April 26, 2016) – When the Budweiser Weekly Championship Series at Lucas Oil Speedway resumes on Saturday, Derek Brown looks to continue his early domination.

Brown, of Stoutland, will be aiming for his fourth feature victory of the month in the Carson’s Corner NAPA Street Stock division. It’s part of the storyline to watch on $5 Night at the Races Presented by KOLR Channel 10.

The Ozark Golf Cars B-Mods, ALPS Food Stores ULMA Late Models and Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds also are in action as a busy month of April racing comes to a close with round three of the weekly series.

Special $5 ticket prices for all adults, seniors, military and youth are on tap with kids 5-and-under, as always, admitted free. Gates open at 5 with hot laps at 7 and racing at 7:30.

“This is a terrific opportunity for our fans to come out, bring the entire family and enjoy a night at the races at a great price thanks to our friends at KOLR Channel 10,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. “We’ve had a tremendous first few weeks of racing to our 2016 season and are looking to finish out April with another big, full program.”

The Street Stock division will be featured, paying $500 to win the 25-lap feature. So far, Brown has been dominated with three wins and a second place that has him 35 points in front of Buckhorn’s David Hendrix in the early points chase.

Last week’s feature winners, in addition to Brown, were Logan Martin in the USRA Modifieds, Aaron Marrant in the ULMA Late Models and Kris Jackson in the B-Mods.

Martin, a 20-year-old from West Plains, had a particularly busy week with double duty. He also finished third in his B-Mod to go along with his feature triumph in his USRA Modified.

Lebanon’s Jackson leads the B-Mod points chase with Jeff Cutshaw of Bolivar atop the USRA Mods standings. Justin Russell of Henley and Nevada’s Larry Ferris are tied in ULMA points.
