Lucas Oil Late Model SeriesWAYCROSS, GA (January 29, 2014) – Officials of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series are excited to head to the sunshine state of Florida again this year for its second stop of the 2014 season. The stars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will travel to East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Florida for the 38th Annual Winternationals at the famed “Clay by the Bay” for a week of action-packed events in early February.

New clay has been added to the racing surface combined with a racer friendly tire rule put in place by the LOLMDS, fans are sure to see some thrilling racing all week long.
