Wheatland, Missouri (August 28, 2017) - A big Labor Day Weekend of racing at Lucas Oil Speedway has become even more intriguing with a significant purse boost to the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod portion of Saturday night's Larry Phillips Memorial.

Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson announced on Monday that the winner of the 30-lap B-Mod feature will take home $1,075 - more than double the originally listed payout. Robinson also said the remaining feature finishing positions also will be doubled.

"Our Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod racing this season has been outstanding and we're so appreciative of how all of those guys have supported us throughout the 2017 season," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "We really want to give them an opportunity to be showcased during one of our big weekends."

Robinson noted that there will be no entry fee for the B-Mod drivers and that the event also will count toward USRA national points.

"This also is another way to pay tribute to the late, great Larry Philips," Robinson said, noting the five-time NASCAR Weekly Racing Series National Champion from Springfield and his iconic car No. 75. "We've doubled the $500-to-win and added $75 to it."

The complete B-Mod payout will be:

1 - $1,075
