WHEATLAND, MO. (June 8, 2021) - Lucas Oil Speedway’s Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series reaches the halfway mark of the 2021 season this Saturday with the Midseason Championships Presented by the Bolivar Herald-Free Press and KTTS on tap.
 
Midseason champions will be crowned in the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modified, Missouri Metal Buildings ULMA Late Model, Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod and O’Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Car divisions.
 
The O’Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars will be running a special 25-lap, $750-to-win feature with a chance for an even bigger payday. Any USRA Stock Cars driver winning both Friday night at Dallas County Speedway and Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway will receive a $250 bonus, put up by the speedways. This is in effect for the remainder of the season.
 
David Hendrix of Waynesville has been strong in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Stock Car division, with three feature wins in five attempts. Hendrix is 74 points in front of Wheatland’s Darren Phillips.
 
The most-intense points battle heading into Saturday is in the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod division, where five-time track champion Kris Jackson of Lebanon has won three consecutive features to surge into the lead after a 15th-place finish on opening night. But Jackson’s lead is only four points over Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kansas, and 20 over JC Morton of Springfield.
 
Dillon McCowan of Urbana holds a 47-point edge over Jason Pursley of Hermitage in the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds. McCowan has two wins and four runner-up finishes.
 
Defending track champion Cole Henson of Russellville leads the way in the Missouri Metal Buildings ULMA Late Models. Henson, with two feature wins, is 61 points in front of Dalton Imhoff of Jamestown.
