Lucas Oil eSports – Race results from the 100 lap event at Lanier Speedway
Tonight, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is set to return. 100 laps of digital dirt late model racing is on deck and the race fans get to watch it LIVE.
View the full Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series live video from Lanier Speedway below.
The asphalt oval bullring is formerly known as Lanier Raceway, transformed to Lanier National Speedway and now known as Lanier Raceplex. The oval track is currently inactive in real life. But, the infield houses a karting track.
Tonight, the track is reborn in the digital world. And the iRacing staff is throwing it way back but dumping dirt on top of the 0.375-mile oval.
Note: The Pro All Star Series made a return oval track last year. Making it the first race at the track since 2016.
Kaeden Cornell and Jeremy Pilkerton transferred into tonight’s show after last night’s OPEN event.
Shanon Buckingham was scheduled to run tonight’s race. However, he was called to work and will not take the green.
