AUGUST MONSTER TRUCKS AND DEMO DERBY POSTPONED
After continuing to look at our remaining 2008 schedule, we are making changes that make sense for our current economic climate. With that being said, the weekly racing scheduled for August 9th has been canceled and the Monster Truck/Demolition Derby scheduled for August 10th has been postponed.
"We had three straight days of racing scheduled for this weekend," said Kevin Greven, General Track Manager. "Weekly racing on Saturday, Monster Trucks and Demo on Sunday and the O'Reilly Sprint Bandits on Monday. With gas prices and the general economy, many fans have to make some hard choices when it comes to their motor sports entertainment dollar. This weekend, we are simply helping by eliminating some of those decisions."
The O'Reilly Sprint Bandits made the cut and will run as scheduled on Monday night August 11th. This is their first stop after leaving Knoxville on the "2008 Touring Topless" Midwest swing.
"These 410 wingless sprints will be, with out a doubt, our wildest show this year," added Greven. "If there is one event this season that race fans in the Midwest should consider a must see, this is it!"
Track officials are currently looking at optional dates for the Monster Truck and demolition derby event. Watch LucasOilSpeedway.com for further updates.
