Wheatland, Missouri - March 3, 2014 - Lucas Oil MLRA series officials are thrilled to announce a sizable bump in the season ending championship point fund. In the past 25 seasons, the highest fund ever paid was $10,000 to the year-end champion. For 2014, the dollar figure at the top has jumped 50 percent to $15,000 to the champion. The hefty Winner's Circle Program is still in place providing tow money to the top 10 drivers with perfect attendance in point standings. The only adjustment in eligibility requirements for 2014 is participation in 80 percent of the series sanctioned events is required to be eligible for post-season awards including cash and contingencies.

"The Lucas Oil MLRA was extremely solid when we purchased it," commented Series Director Dan Robinson. "However, we knew with Lucas Oil's support we would like to add and expand a few of the incentives to follow our tour. Last year we brought on several new marketing partners and this year even more, so we are excited to finally release this bit of news. We knew the schedule would be more demanding this year, and hopefully we will continue to be able to offer more and more incentives to our drivers."

The schedule currently shows 29 dates with a few yet to be announced, pushing it to around the 32 race mark. The 2014 season begins with back to back action packed race weekends in April. The Spring Meltdown is slated for April 4th and 5th at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska, paying $2,000 and $3,000 to win, respectively. Then, action will move onto Lucas Oil Speedway, April 11th and 12th for the 1st Annual FOX 22 Spring Nationals presented by RacingJunk.com. Tickets are on sale now for the inaugural two-day event and can be purchased at www.LucasOilSpeedway.com.
