The 2014 edition of the “Super Bowl of Racing”, sanctioned by the LOLMDS, will consist of three full nights of racing at GIS. Thursday night, February 6th the series will run a $5,000 to win and $500 to start non-points feature event. Then on Friday night February 7th the LOLMDS will run a $10,000 to win and $800 to start feature event, followed by a second $10,000 to win, $800 to start feature event on Saturday February 8th.

After three action packed nights of racing at the Super Bowl of Racing is complete in South Georgia, the series will then head even further south to the famed “Clay by the Bay” for the running of the 38th Annual East Bay Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL. The series will have the annual practice session on Sunday night, February 9th – before the racing action begins – on Monday night, February 10th with six straight nights of racing, concluding on Saturday night, February 15th.  2014 will mark the 10th straight year the series has sanctioned the Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, FL.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is ecstatic to work with all of our great promoters heading into 2014. And a huge thanks goes out to our loyal promoters for their timely confirmation of the 2014 dates on the series schedule. The series will have nine (9) events paying more than $10,000 to win, including the return of our marquee events on the schedule again in 2014.
