Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Ready for Action in the Clash at the Mag

Batavia, OH (June 15, 2021) – The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) and COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil roll into Columbus, MS for a co-sanctioned event with over $110,000 in prize money on the line. Magnolia Motor Speedway is set to host the Optima Batteries Clash at the Mag Presented by Big River Steel – a three-day weekend that is one of the biggest in Mississippi.

Set for June 17th – June 19th, the Clash at the Mag will have full racing programs on Thursday and Friday, capping off the weekend with a 60-lap A-Main on Saturday, paying $15,000-to-win.

A complete program of Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a $5,000-to-win main event is on tap for Thursday and Friday nights. Each night, the pit gates will open at 2:00pm, followed by general admission at 4:00pm. A driver’s meeting will take place at 7:00 pm, followed by hot laps at 7:30pm.

Drivers will earn valuable points in each of the two preliminary nights that will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s finale. The top 18 in points will be locked into the A-Main, while the rest of the field will contend for one of the final transfer spots through one of the B-Mains.

On Saturday, the pit gates will open at 2:00pm, followed by general admission at 4:00pm. Saturday’s festivities will kick off with a Dirt Racing Outreach service from 4:30pm through 5:15pm. On-track action is slated for 7:00pm, beginning with hot laps. LOLMDS/CCSDS competition will kick off with consolation events, topped off by the $15,000-to-win Optima Batteries Clash at the Mag Presented by Big River Steel.

In 2020, the main event saw three different leaders, with Jimmy Owens regaining the top spot from Shane Clanton on lap 23. After several breakaway runs, Owens held off Clanton at the finish for his third Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the year. Clanton finished just ahead of Josh Richards who came home in third. Bobby Pierce and Tyler Erb rounded out the top five drivers. The stars of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event will be joined by a strong showing of local and regional standouts.

Tim McCreadie goes into the weekend with a slim 25 point lead over Hudson O’Neal. Trailing by 195 points is Jonathan Davenport in third, Josh Richards currently sits fourth in series point standings, with Eibach Springs Rookie of the Year contender, Ricky Thornton Jr in fifth, just 25 points out of third. A three-way tie ensues for sixth between Shane Clanton, Mike Marlar, and Kyle Bronson. Tyler Erb and Jimmy Owens round out the top ten in championship points.
