Tulsa, OK — (February 26, 2016) — Winning races is the goal of any team. But winning consecutive, high paying events; now that’s a challenge. Enter the Lucas Oil Triple Crown. A $50,000 carrot that awaits any driver who can top three of the Midwest’s biggest ASCS events in 2016.
Which events? For starters, you have to win the finale of the Arnold Motor Supply ASCS 360 Knoxville Nationals at the famed Knoxville Raceway. Next, you’ll have to top the High Roller Classic at the Missouri State Fair Speedway. The final step; winning the final night of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial at the “Diamond of Dirt Tracks” at the Lucas Oil Speedway.
“We wanted to tie together three big events, that are easy for drivers to get to and with Knoxville announcing an increased payout, plus the High Roller going to $15,000 to win, and the Hockett/McMillin going to three days and $10,000 to win, they made the choice of events easy, plus, it just adds to the excitement that these events are already building,” said ASCS National Coordinator, Matt Ward. “We can’t thank Lucas Oil enough for their continued support of ASCS and the drivers in making it possible to put together the Triple Crown.”
The Arnold Motor Supply ASCS 360 Knoxville Nationals at the Knoxville Raceway takes place August 4-6, 2016. More information on the Knoxville Raceway can be found online at http://www.knoxvilleraceway.com.
