Jon Sheets has a three-point lead in the USRA Modified division and the top five are separated by just 26 points entering Saturday's Mid-Season Championships at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

There will be a little extra cash and bragging rights on the line Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway as mid-season champions are determined in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series.

The Bolivar Herald-Free Press and NMI-VMG Marketing present Mid-Season Championships with both divisions too close to call.

"We had some great racing last week to set the stage for us to determine our midseason champions," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "For the fourth straight year, we want to thank Victory Lane Track Action Review magazine for adding the bonus money for the mid-season champs."

Victory Lane Track Action Race Review is distributed free to fans each week at the speedway, with feature stories, news, schedules and updated points standings. It will contribute $1,000 toward a bonus for mid-season track champions in each of the weekly divisions.

Lucas Oil Speedway management will match the "Geared Up Program" contribution with another $1,000. The total of $2,000 will be split among the points leaders following Saturday's action.

"The Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series is a big part of the racing passion for us," Victory Lane Track Action Race Review publisher Debra M. Filkins said. "It is a privilege to encourage and support the racing teams. Victory Lane is thankful for our sponsors, our staff Danielle Miller and Jade Morris, the drivers and fans."

Also for the fans on Saturday, Scott Furniture of Osceola is donating a chair to be given away in a drawing during intermission in honor of Father's Day Weekend. The chair will be on display at the Protect the Harvest display on the midway. Fathers can sign up their for a chance to win, compliments of Scott Furniture.

Fans arriving early can get photos and autographs on the midway as drivers will have their cars on display from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m.

The points chase in the USRA Modified class is a wild one with just 26 points separating the top five. Jon Sheets of Nevada will take a six-point lead over Paden Phillips and a six-point margin over Chase Domer into Saturday. Robbie Reed is 20 behind and Jason Pursley trailed by 26.

Lebanon's Kris Jackson has taken over the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod lead after sweeping double features last Saturday. J.C. Morton trails by 24 and Andy Bryant, runner-up to Jackson in both main events last weekend, is 42 behind.
