Format Set For Firecracker 100

SARVER, Pa. – The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series is one week away from the 15th annual Firecracker 100, and every lap the drivers turn at Lernerville Speedway matters.

On June 24-25, the series will run a full show, including Slick Woody’s Cornhole Co. Qualifying, Drydene Heat Races, and a 30-lap Morton Buildings feature paying $6,000-to-win.

Drivers will accumulate points on both nights, setting the heat race lineups for Saturday’s 100-lap finale, paying $30,000-to-win.

Anyone who doesn’t qualify through the heat races or Last Chance Showdowns, will have a final chance to make the main event by racing in the Uncle Sam 30.

Whoever wins the race will have a choice, take home $2,000 or start at the back of the Firecracker 100 field for a chance to win the $30,000 top prize.

One driver could potentially collect $42,000 during three nights of jam-packed racing.

Defending champion Cade Dillard hopes to go back-to-back in 2021, but he’ll have a strong list of contenders trying to take home $30,000.

Dillard will have to contend with usual Series foes like reigning champion Brandon Sheppard, and four-time winner Chris Madden.

He’ll also have to deal with a strong group of drivers from Pennsylvania, including Mike Norris, Gregg Satterlee, and 2011 series champion Rick Eckert.

Two-time Dirt Late Model Dream winner Brandon Overton will be at Lernerville, as well, hoping to add more money to the $273,000 he won last week at Eldora Speedway.
