Posted: Updated:
BYRAM, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series returns to Jackson Motor Speedway on Friday night April 5.

The 2nd Annual "Southern 50" will attract the nation's top dirt late model drivers and some of the strongest the Southern United States has to offer.

Last year's winner, "The Real Deal" Don O'Neal, and a host of other top notch national drivers like Scott Bloomquist, Jared Landers, Billy Moyer Jr., Steve Francis and Wendell Wallace will be on hand trying to capture the first place $10,000 payday. But the regional contingent of drivers will be hard to handle. Regional drivers David Breazeale, Neil Baggett, Chad Thrash, Jimmy and Jason Cliburn, Timothy Culp, Chris Wall, BJ Robinson, and others will be hard to contend with on their home soil.

In addition to the Southern 50 Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model main event, the Nesmith Crate Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds and Nesmith Street Stocks will be in action. The Street Stocks will be competing for a guaranteed $600 to win in round 1 of the I-20 Street Stock Challenge.

Spectator gates will open at 4:00pm with a driver autograph session at 4:30pm. Racing action will kick off at 7pm sharp.

Grandstand Admission: $25.00 for adults, kids 7 to 12 is $15 with Kids 6 and under FREE.

Pit admission is $35.00, kids 7 to 12 is $25 with Kids 6 and under FREE.
