Big weekend ahead at Lucas Oil Speedway with Drag Boats, Dirt Racing and Bo’s On The Road Extravaganza

WHEATLAND, MO. (July 26, 2021) – One of the biggest weekends in Lucas Oil Speedway history is coming up with racing on both the dirt track and Lake Lucas – and actor, musician and entertainer John Schneider will be a centerpiece of the action all three days.

There’s even some extra fun planned for the kids at the Drag Boat portion of the festivities on Saturday and Sunday, with a pair of water-themed bounce-house attractions coming for the first time.

The fun begins on Friday as Schneider, who played the role of Bo Duke on the iconic television series Duke’s of Hazard, and his “Bo’s On The Road Extravaganza” rolls into Lucas Oil Speedway and kick off the weekend with a concert followed by the showing of his movie “Stand On It” on the track’s Jumbotron video board.

“The music is going to be high-energy,” Schneider said in a telephone interview. “We’re gonna have a great amount of fun. What I lean toward, I grew up when (Lynard) Skynyrd was still around before the crash. I’m a child of real grassroots Southern Rock.

“When we get up there on stage, I think people are going to be surprised. We’re gonna tear it up.”

VIP meet and greet tickets must be purchased in advance by calling Admissions Director Nichole McMillan at (417) 282-5984. General admission tickets throughout the weekend can be purchased online or at the gate.

A big car show has been added to the festivities earlier on Friday with the public invited to enter their favorite classic car with several categories available.

On Saturday, Day One of the Kentucky Drag Boat Association Summer Shootout will take place the morning and afternoon on Lake Lucas. Both Saturday and on Sunday, for the final half of the Summer Shootout, kids can play on a 35-foot-long wet water slide/bounce house combo that will be set up on the drag boat midway.

The Tropical Combo has four features to entertain youngsters, including a large bounce floor that will accommodate 6-8 kids. Inside the bounce house, the kids can play with a built-in basketball hoop or pretend they’re in a tropical forest as they can climb a “mountain” and ride a river to a gentle splash pool. Swim suit are encouraged for the youngsters.

There also will be cornhole boards under the beer tent.

The Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series on the dirt track Saturday night finds the CW Ozarks/O-zone Presenting Fan Appreciation Night for the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series with food and drink specials including $1 nachos & cheese, $2 hot dogs and $2 soft drinks or water.

Before the racing action, John will speak about the meaning of the National Anthem and then he will sing the National Anthem during opening ceremonies. John and his wife, Alicia, will then be a part of the action in the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod portion of the races in their own cars.

The Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds will headline the dirt-track program with a 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event. The Show Me Vintage Racing Club Cars will be on hand as a guest class and will be displaying their cars on the midway prior to the event and having a race on the dirt oval after intermission.

On Sunday prior to the beginning of Day 2 of the KDBA Summer Shootout, Schneider will hold Cowboy Church services along with a pastor from Racers for Christ at Lake Lucas.

“It’s going to be a fun-filled weekend and we look forward to having John, one of America’s great entertainers, on hand,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “John has a genuine love for motorsports and specifically dirt-track racing and I can’t wait to see him and Alicia on the track.”

Schneider is in the final editing stages of his new movie, “Poker Run,” a sequel to “Stand On It.” The new production is scheduled for release on Nov. 26.
