King of the Hill this Weekend
by Trenton Berry
BUCKNER, Mo. -- The next pair of events on the Lucas Oil MLRA calendar is forthcoming this weekend at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, NE. The Annual King of the Hill Late Model Shootout will run on both Friday August 10th and Saturday August 11th. Each night will see heat races, consolation features and a main event. A special driver meet and greet will take place behind the main grandstand prior to action on Saturday.
A new driver will likely emerge in AAA Missouri Victory Lane this weekend as Kelly Boen hasn't competed in an event this season. He had won eight of the last eleven Lucas Oil MLRA events and six in a row at Delmar Friesen's beautiful 3/8 mile oval. John Anderson currently leads the Lucas Oil MLRA competitors in the overall standings and will be a major threat to win this weekend. Mark Dotson and Kevin Sather will continue their extremely tight point battle too. Jesse Stovall enters the weekend as the most recent Lucas Oil MLRA winner. He'll be competiting is his familiar black #00, owned by Al Humphrey.
The Lucas Oil MLRA would like to thank George Brothers and Strobel Manufacturing for sponsoring the King of the Hill. Friday there will be several Off-Road Racing Trucks form the Strobel Motorsports stable on display, as well as an appearance by a nostalgic nitro burning dragster.
