Waycross, GA – This weekend’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned event at Batesville Motor Speedway, in Batesville, AR scheduled for April 17th-18th, has been cancelled.


The track and grounds have sustained heavy rains this week at Batesville Motor Speedway and more thunderstorms dominate the forecast for this weekend.


“We really hate to lose the event this weekend. We can’t wait to come back to Batesville for the Topless and give the fans a great show,” stated Assistant Series Director, Rick Schwallie, “But after talking with Mooney Starr, the promoter at Batesville, we were unable to find a suitable make-up date for the event.”


The next event for the LOLMDS will be on April 24th at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex in Markleysburg, PA, followed by Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, MD on April 25th. Both events will pay $10,000 to win and will feature Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and 50-lap Main Events.
