Humboldt and Springfield on the Horizon
by Trenton Berry
BUCKNER, Mo. -- Fresh off of the Silver Dollar Nationals weekend at I-80 Speedway, the Lucas Oil MLRA will race again this Friday and Saturday night. Friday action will take place at Humboldt Speedway. A track widely recognized as one of the top modified tracks in the country, "The Hummer" will scream this weekend with Super Dirt Late Models. 2003 was the last Lucas Oil MLRA event at the Southeastern Kansas oval.
Saturday, the Casey's General Store Summer Meltdown will run at Springfield Raceway in Springfield, MO. It will mark the third of four visits to the "Quick-Quarter" in 2012 for the Lucas Oil MLRA. Brad Looney and John Anderson have each won features there this season.
John Anderson leads the series points by a comfortable margin, and looks poised to claim his second straight series title. Terry Phillips and Mark Dotson are sitting second and third respectively.
