BATAVIA, Ohio (August 12, 2019) – The elite drivers of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, along with top dirt late model drivers from around the nation, will converge in Batesville, Ark. this weekend.

 

One of the most highly anticipated events of the season, the 27th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions is slated for Thursday – Saturday, August 15th – 17th, at Batesville Motor Speedway. The crown jewel event is co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series – Presented by Lucas Oil.

 

In 2019, the Topless 100 will feature a complete program of Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains and a $5,000-to-win main event on Thursday and Friday nights. Drivers will earn points in each of the two preliminary nights that will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s finale. The IMCA Modifieds will also compete in a full program on Thursday and Friday nights, chasing a $1,000 top prize.

 

Saturday’s festivities will kick off with a driver autograph session at 6:30pm. Hot laps will begin at 8:00pm, followed by consolation events for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. The 100-lap, $40,000-to-win Topless 100 will cap off the weekend action. The IMCA Modifieds will once again compete in a full program on Saturday night – highlighted by a $1,000 payday.

 

The event’s unique format, featuring dirt late models without a roof, gives spectators an up-close look, as drivers wrestle their 800+ horsepower machines around the lightning-fast, 3/8-mile oval. Scott Bloomquist will return as the defending Topless 100 Champion. In 2017, the Hall of Fame driver became the first five-time winner of the illustrious event.
