WAYCROSS, GA (July 6, 2015) - The premier national touring series for dirt late models will return to the Midwest this weekend for a triple shot of racing action.

Tri-City Speedway, in Granite City, Illinois, will host the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the second time in 2015. The "Battle at the Beach 50" includes a complete show of: Miller Welders Time Trials, Heat Races, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $10,000-to-win main event.

The action will ratchet up on Sunday, July 11th with the completion of the 23rd Annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 - Presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com.
