By Lyndal Scranton – WHEATLAND, Missouri (April 22, 2018) – Opening night at Lucas Oil Speedway saw Robert Heydenreich lead all the way in capturing the featured Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod main event Saturday night.

A total of 133 cars checked into the pits as the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series, which had been twice-postponed due to the weather, finally was able to launch. That included 47 B-Mods, 30 Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models, 30 Pitts homes USRA Modifieds and 26 Big O Tires Street Stocks in a program Presented by OnMedia/Dish/DirecTV.

Action was delayed early in the program due to light rain, but the track crew got the surface back into shape after the precipitation ceased. Three of the four classes were able to get all their races in with only the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds falling victim to rain late into the night.

Opening night turned out to be a memorable one for Heydenreich, who won his heat race from a fourth-starting position to earn the pole for the main event. The Bolivar resident was out front all 25 laps for his first feature win at Lucas Oil Speedway. The victory was worth $750.

JC Morton, the 2016 Lucas Oil Speedway B-Mod champ and USRA B-Mod national champ who’s returning to race at the speedway weekly this season, finished second with Kris Jackson third, Eddie Schwope fourth and Hunter Byers fifth.

Heat-race winners in the USRA B-Mods were Kris Jackson, Robert Heydenreich, JC Morton, Eddie Schwope and Brian McGowen. Darron Fuqua and Robbe Ewing earned B-feature wins.

In the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Model division, Aaron Marrant of Richmond, Missouri, went on to record the feature victory after starting on the pole. Jason Russell was second with Larry Ferris in third, Aaron Poe fourth and Josh Poe fifth.

Action in the Big O Tires Street Stock class saw Brian Schutt of Lebanon prevail over runner-up Davie Hendrix. Reigning track champion Toby Ott was third with Bobby Barnett fourth and Chris Tonoli in fifth.

The Pitts Homes USRA Modified main event was postponed due to rain and will be made up at the beginning of next week’s action. Four-time defending track champion Jeff Cutshaw, Lucas Gibbs and Trevor Latham captured heat races.

Next up: The Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series resumes April 28 with $5 Night Presented by KY3 with all tickets $5 for adults, seniors and youth. Kids 5-and-under, as always, are FREE.

The program will include the Warsaw Auto Marine & RV ULMA Late Models, the Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds, the Big O Tires Street Stocks and the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods. The Street Stocks will be running a special 25-lap, $750-to-win main event.

In addition, the first Level 5 Off Road UTV/Side by Side Racing program will be held earlier in the day on the Off Road track. Level 5 Off Road Series will offer drivers multiple classes to accommodate all skill levels, including Pro Unlimited, Production 1000, RS1, Sportsman and Youth.
