High Limit Set For Lucas Oil Speedway Invasion

WHEATLAND, Mo. — Lucas Oil Speedway has unveiled its tentative schedule for next season, which includes the High Limit Racing Series invading the three-eighths-mile dirt oval.

The Inaugural High Limit Racing Diamond Classic is scheduled for June 28-29 with many of the best in open-wheel sprint-car racing expected to compete.

Founded and owned by NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson and five-time World of Outlaws champion Brad Sweet, the series recently announced expansion, which tentatively includes a 50-plus race schedule. 

“We are excited to be a part of High Limit Racing in 2024 as part of our tentative schedule, which includes our usual mainstay events such as the Show-Me 100, Hockett-McMillin Memorial and Kentucky Drag Boat Association events on Lake Lucas,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. “High Limit Racing is an opportunity to bring even more world-class racing to our fans and we thank Brad Sweet, Kyle Larson and their series for working with us to make it happen.”

Sweet will compete in every event and pursue his first High Limit Racing championship with the Kasey Kahne Racing NAPA No. 49 team. Larson, crowned the midweek series champion earlier this month, will continue to compete in select events while also pursuing a NASCAR Cup Series championship and an Indianapolis 500 victory next year.

Other highlights among many special events at Lucas Oil Speedway include the 32nd annual Lucas Oil Show-Me 100 during Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25) and the 18th annual CMH Diamond Nationals (July 13), both featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
