Tonight’s race is officially the 27th annual DLMD. Tomorrow, they’ll re-rack the entire show and go at it once again in the makeup event from last year.
There was no qualifying in tonight’s show. Points earned from last night were used to set the lineups for the heat races.
Rain began to fall in heat race number two. Track officials went to work to get the track back in shape but it’s tacky and fast as a results. It’s also hot and engine issues are a possible concern in the pit area.
Kyle Larson drove to the win in heat one. He’s set to make his Dirt Late Model Dream debut.
Brandon Sheppard will start from the pole position as Chad Simpson rolls from the outside front row following heat race wins from both of those drivers. The field lines up in a four wide salute for the dirt racing fans! Fireworks blast and we’re ready for 100 laps of dirt late model racing…
