“It’s been a tremendous regular season in all four of our weekly divisions and some very deserving champions will be crowned on Saturday,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. “Not only have our champions found their way into victory lane multiple times this season, their consistency has stood out, week after week. We’ll be proud to salute them this week.”

Jeff Cutshaw of Bolivar is on the verge of his third straight championship in the Pitts Homes USRA Modified division. Other points leaders are Aaron Marrant of Richmond (ALPS Food Stores ULMA Late Models), Stoutland’s Derek Brown (Carson’s Corner NAPA Street Stocks) and J.C.
