Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and Batesville Motor Speedway Have Postponed This Years “Bad Boy 98”

Lucas Oil Late Model SeriesBatesville, AR (May 21, 2011) – Officials of Batesville Motor Speedway and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series have made the decision to postpone this weekends Inaugural “Bad Boy 98” due to inclement weather conditions. Heavy rains have been steady at the speedway yesterday and into the night. The forecast for the remainder of the weekend looks to continue with soaking rains that have already drenched the grounds. The speedway already has received 8 inches of rain that has caused flooding in some areas around the facility.

The “Bad Boy 98” is now rescheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday May 17-19th, 2012 as part of the “Road to Wheatland”. The event will take place at Batesville Motor Speedway in 2012 as the final event leading to the DART Show-Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO

“To be able to reschedule the Bad Boy 98 the week before the DART Show-Me 100 will allow us to give fans and racers two mega spring time events to attend in one week along with great tourism destinations in the Midwest. We wish we could have gotten the event in this year as well as all the fans and racers but mother nature just wouldn’t allow it. We look forward to running the Inaugural “Bad Boy 98” in 2012 as part of the “Road to Wheatland”, stated Ritchie Lewis, series director.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will return again to BMS in 2011 and sanction the 19th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 on August 18-20th. This years COMP Cams Topless 100 event will pay $40,000 to win and $2,000 to start.
