Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Live Internet Broadcasts This Weekend from Tri-City and Wheatland



CORONA, CA (July 16, 2009) - The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will back on the air this weekend offering live internet broadcasts from the events at Tri-City Speedway on Friday and Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday. Both races will be broadcast on www.RaceCastLive.com.

On Friday, July 17th, the stars and cars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return to Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, IL for the "Budweiser 50" in an event being taped in front of the High-Definition cameras of SPEED. Billy Moyer of Batesville, AR is the defending winner of the event while Muscatine, IA's Brian Birkhofer notched a Lucas Oil win at the highly competitive 3/8-mile track earlier this season. Friday night's broadcast will begin with PRC Time Trials at 8:00pm eastern, 7:00pm central on www.RaceCastLive.com.

The nation's top touring series then moves on to Wheatland, MO for the "CMH Showdown" at Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday, July 18th. For the second time this season, the O'Reilly MLRA Series will be joining the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at The Diamond of Dirt Tracks. In a highly-entertaining battle one year ago, Bart Hartman of Zanesville, OH won this event after a fierce lead-swapping battle with eventual points champion Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL. The broadcast for the CMH Showdown is slated to get underway at 8:00pm eastern, 7:00pm central on www.RaceCastLive.com.

Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Internet Broadcaster Dustin Jarrett will bring you each action-packed lap both nights on www.RaceCastLive.com. As always, the broadcasts are FREE to listen to courtesy of Team Lucas and Race Cast Live. Race Cast Live... racing on your demand!
