The Lucas Oil MLRA schedule has taken shape for the 2014 season and boasts a slew of new race tracks, along with a number of tracks fans and drivers are extremely familiar with.
“Ernie Leftwich and I have worked extremely hard to put together a quality schedule for 2014,” said Series Director Dan Robinson. “We worked hard to strike a balance between what works well for our northern and southern contingent of drivers and fans. We are also excited to be able to showcase Lucas Oil and our series at a host of new tracks this year, too.”
The 26th season will get underway April 4-5 at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska, for the Spring Meltdown. Then it will be on to Lucas Oil Speedway for the MLRA Spring Nationals, which has been expanded into a two-day show. New tracks in Independence and Davenport, Iowa, dot the schedule on May 9 and 10. The following weekend the first two of four races will be held at Outlaw Motorsports Park in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The Crown Jewel Lucas Oil Show Me 100 will bring down the month of May.
