After completing another successful season in 2012—where Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tennessee, won his second consecutive LOLMDS National Championship—series officials have announced the 2013 schedule.
The premier national touring dirt late model series has 44 confirmed dates in 20 different states on the schedule for 2013.
The series completed forty-three (43) events in 2012, with an average of forty-four (44) cars per event. There were fifteen different (15) winners in 2012 with Don O'Neal leading the series with eleven (11) wins.
The 2013 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series national tour will kick off at the "Clay by the Bay" on February 11 with the six consecutive nights of action-packed racing during the 37th Annual Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will again sanction some of the sport's biggest events such as the Commonwealth 100, Show-Me 100, Silver Dollar Nationals, North/South 100, COMP Cams Topless 100, Hillbilly Hundred, Jackson 100, Knoxville Late Model Nationals and the season finale Dirt Track World Championship.
The 21st Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 held at Batesville Motor Speedway will again pay $40,000 to win. Moonie Starr is pleased to announce a new sponsor has come on board for the event, Crop Production Services, an agricultural retail supplier doing business in 48 states.
With the added sponsorship to the COMP Cams Topless 100 there will be two additional starting positions added to the 100-lap feature event. Moonie Starr will also add an additional $15,000 in cash monies to the B-mains to give racers more chances to earn money at next year's event setting up what should be a great field of cars for the COMP Cams Topless 100 in August.
