Robbie Reed won the USRA Modified main event.

Racing returned to Lucas Oil Speedway on Sunday night after a delayed start of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series feature winners on Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Night presented by OzarksFIRST.com were defending track champions Robbie Reed (USRA Modifieds) and Kris Jackson (USRA B-Mods).

Reed uses late pass for Modified win: Reed of Mexico (Missouri) started defense of his Pitts Homes USRA Modified track championship in a big way, making a pass with one lap to go and then holding off Terry Schultz for the feature win.

Schultz, from Sedalia, started on the pole and led the first 18 laps before Reed slipped past coming to the white flag. A caution before the final circuit could be completed led to a one-lap shootout for the win and Reed was up to the challenge, holding off Schultz by 1.125 seconds at the finish.

Reed started fifth and advanced into the top-three by lap 11 of the 20-lap race, behind Schultz and Duvall. Reed, who matched his feature win total at Lucas Oil Speedway form a year ago, moved past Duvall into the second spot by lap 17 and  set his sights on the leader.

Duvall finished third with Dustin Hodges fourth and Lucas Gibbs in fifth.

Jackson begins title defense with B-Mod win: Jackson of Lebanon started the new season like he finished the old one. The reigning Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod track champ and USRA B-Mod National Champion captured the feature with a 2.4-second triumph over runner-up Ryan Gillmore of Springfield.

Jackson, starting fourth, passed front-row starting Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kan., on the fourth lap to take the lead and he never gave it back.

He earned eight feature wins in 2019 at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Bryant slipped back to fourth a lap later before passing Gillmore and Turner and rallying back into second by lap 12 when a caution flew.

As Jackson opened up a comfortable lead once the race resumed, eighth-starting Gillmore regained second and Dillon McCowan of Urbana went around Bryant for third with two laps remaining and held that position to the finish. Eric Turner rounded out the top five.


Kris Jackson won the USRA B-Mod main event.

Racing resumes next Saturday: The Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series is back in action next Saturday. Ozarks FOX presents the program which finds the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds the featured class, running a 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event. Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods will also be in action plus the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models  and O'Reilly Auto Parts Street Stocks.

Lorton said due to continued COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, entries in each of the four divisions again will be limited to 30 and all preregistration must be done via MyRacePass. Beginning on Monday, those in the top 15 of each class from the 2020 Lucas Oil Speedway points standings can preregister and those drivers have till midnight on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, starting at noon, all other drivers can preregister via MyRacePass. They will be entered in the order received until the limit of 30 is reached per class.

All drivers are reminded when they pre-register the first email confirmation they will receive is just stating your registration has been confirmed with MyRacePass. This does not mean they are locked into the event. As entries are processed, Pit Office Manager Amber Hoeschler will add them to the event date and drivers' names will appear on the May 23 race event in the class they entered.

Gates are scheduled to open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 and opening ceremonies at 7.

For fans, due to COVID-19 precautions, social distancing of 6 feet will be required for the grandstands, though families are allowed to sit together. Fans should leave at least one space between vehicles in the parking lot. Drivers in the pit area will be required to leave one pit stall between haulers.

For ticket questions or information for any event this season, contact Admissions Director Nichole McMillan at (417) 282-5984 or email her at nichole@lucasoilspeedway.com for more information.
