Batavia, OH (June 8, 2021) - An already-big payday at West Virginia Motor Speedway will get even bigger in 2022.

West Virginia Motor Speedway in Mineral Wells, which recently made its return to racing for the first time since 2013, welcomes the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the second edition of the "Historic 100," June 3rd and 4th, 2022.

The elite teams of the nation's premier dirt late model tour will compete for a combined weekend purse of over $200,000. On Friday, June 3rd, drivers will compete in a 30 lap A-Main for a shot at $15,000 with the weekend culminating in a 50-lap, $50,000-to-win finale on Saturday, June 4th.

On the heels of a highly successful inaugural "Historic 100," the team at West Virginia Motor Speedway is looking forward to building on that momentum in 2022. "We look forward to working with Rick (Schwallie) and the entire Lucas Oil team to build this event into one of the premier weekends of the season," said track owner Cody Watson.

"As we continue to build onto and modernize the venue, we are excited to bring even more star power to our supporting fan base. Our fans have been awesome all season and we hope this shows our commitment to give them some of the sport's biggest events."

"Cody and his staff have done an amazing job of revitalizing the West Virginia Motor Speedway," Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Director Rick Schwallie added. "We pride ourselves in sanctioning some of the biggest events in dirt late model racing and we're thrilled to add the Historic 100 to that growing list of mega events. Hats off to Cody and the team at West Virginia Motor Speedway for stepping up to build a marquee event for drivers and fans alike."
