As the 2017 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series season finale takes place this weekend, the tour announced an aggressive 2018 slate, which includes 58 feature events at 37 different venues across 22 states.

The 2018 schedule begins with the February 2–3 "Super Bowl of Racing" at Golden Isles Speedway. Portsmouth Raceway Park will be hosting the season-ending Dirt Track World Championship on October 19–20.

The 2018 schedule will feature an impressive 23 events that will pay $12,000-to-win, along with 13 crown jewel events that will pay $20,000-to-win (or more).

Two tracks on the 2018 schedule will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the first time, including 141 Speedway in Maribel, WI on May 18 and Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, MN on July 18. In addition, Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, TN returns to the series docket for the first time since 2015 on March 22, 2018.

The schedule also includes the inaugural Dirt Million at Mansfield Motor Speedway, August 24–25, 2018. The new "mega-event" will allow competitors to compete for a minimum of $100,000-to-win, $2000-to-start at the 4/10-mile oval.

However, the purse will continue to increase throughout the 2018 calendar year via a unique format and promotion that allows dirt racing families, friends, sponsors, fans and teams everywhere in the world to play a role in building the feature's payoff. The total purse for the event can climb to $1 million, which would result in the weekend's A-main offering a $500,000 winner's prize and $10,000 just to take the green flag.
