SHREVEPORT, La. – The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series returns to Louisiana’s Boothill Speedway this Saturday for the first time since 2001, alongside the ASCS Mid-South and ASCS Lone Star regions.
Opening at 6 p.m., racing is set to get underway at 7:30 p.m. (CDT) with Limited Modifieds and Factory Stocks also on the card. Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for youth 6-11, and free for kids five and under.
Three previous events in 1995, 1997, and 2001, saw just as many winners, with Tennessee’s Mike Ward taking the inaugural win. Arkansas’ Tim Crawley followed in 1997, with Gary Wright taking the checkered flag in 2001.
This will be the 27th visit for the series to Louisiana since the series launched in 1994. Nine ovals have seen action with the tour, including Boothill. The last time the tour was in Louisiana was in 2013 at Ark-La-Tex Speedway, where Logan Forler visited victory lane.
Boothill Speedway is located at 39 Daytona Dr. in Greenwood, La.
