Fresh of the Chili Bowl Nationals win, Larson is heading for more dirt racing trophies
Race fans are set to descend on Florida. If you expected comfortable grandstand space, you can cancel that idea. The crowd pleaser just packed the grandstands.
All-Tech Raceway is a half-mile dirt track in Lake City, Florida. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will enter the track for races on January 22nd and 23rd. Additionally, tonight is a practice day at the facility.
Following a schedule adjustment, the races this weekend will begin the 2021 season for the national dirt late model tour.
In the field is the dirt track dominator, Kyle Larson. Fresh off his Chili Bowl Nationals win, he’s set to return to the No. 6 dirt late model at All-Tech Raceway.
The No. 6 machine is owned by Jacqueline and Kevin Rumley.
This will be the third weekend in a late model for Larson. He made his fendered debut last year at Port Royal Speedway. In his second start on the two-day show, Larson parked it in victory lane.
In October, we ran the Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park. Weeks later, he ran the No. 6 in the dirt late model portion of the Last Call race on the Dirt Track at Charlotte.
As of now, Larson is only expected to run All-Tech Raceway per social media comments from team personnel. However, the Lucas Speedweeks tour continues beyond Lake City, FL.
After the stop at All-Tech Ravceway, the tour heads further south for East Bay Raceway Park. The series will run at the Tampa, FL short track from Jan 25-30.
The Florida tour continues on Feb 1st and 2nd at Bubba Raceway Park. The races at the Ocala, FL track will conclude Speedweeks.
On the asphalt side, Larson is set to make his NASCAR Cup Series debut with Hendrick Motorsports. His debut in the No. 5 machine will be on February 11th at Daytona International Speedway via the Daytona Duels. That will be followed by the Daytona 500 on February 14th.
