The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series then presided over their first-ever event at Smoky Mountain Speedway on Saturday, as another $10,000 payday was on the line. Dennis posted the twentieth quickest lap during qualifying and later finished sixth in his loaded heat race. After rolling off from the inside of the ninth row in the 50-lap main event, the Carpentersville, Illinois ace was able to pick off twelve competitors in his new BWRC car to claim a strong fifth place effort behind only victor Casey Roberts, Jonathan Davenport, Scott Bloomquist, and Don O’Neal. Dennis still sits ninth in the latest version of the LOLMDS point standings following the doubleheader in the Southeast. Full results can be accessed online by visiting www.lucasdirt.com.
