The next event for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will take place April 1st at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown IN. “We felt like we a good car in the early part of the week at East Bay and had a shot to win on Wednesday night but came up one position short. Then the final two nights we were just a little off on the setup or bent something when we got in that wreck on Friday night. After the bad luck we had last year at East Bay, we are really pleased to make the show every night and come out of East Bay 5th in the points standings”, stated Earl. “We’ll be at Volusia Tuesday through Saturday and hope to get a win or two in my home state before speedweeks is over”, Earl went on to say.
