Both venues will host the nation's top dirt late model drivers along with one of the strongest fields of local and regional standouts anywhere.

The thrills won't stop as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series teams make their way to Macon Speedway on Saturday night. Also rich in history, the 1/5-mile bullring that opened in 1946 is historically known to produce non-stop, door-to-door racing action. The event features Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Races, and B-Mains, highlighted by a 100-lap, $15,000-to-win main event.

The pit gate will close at 2:30 PM CT and reopen at 3:00 PM CT. The general admission gate will open at 4:00 PM CT.
