Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Amends October Schedule

BATAVIA, Ohio (September 16, 2022) – With racing at The Red Clay at Woodstock – Historic Dixie Speedway continuing hiatus for the remainder of 2022, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series has amended the October 7th-8th weekend schedule.

The 33rd running of the Lucas Oil Dixie Shootout at The Red Clay at Woodstock – Historic Dixie Speedway has been canceled. The scheduled event at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala. will shift to Saturday, October 8th.

The Swims family paused operations at The Red Clay at Woodstock – Historic Dixie Speedway, and its sister track Rome International Speedway, in 2022 to focus on the health of Martha Swims – who along with her husband Mickey and other family members have owned the legendary racetrack for 46 years.

“We have always done everything as a family, including racing,” stated the Swims family. “We are so grateful for all the support that all our friends and family have offered both Martha and our family during this difficult time. We rejoice, for we know that she is with her Heavenly Father.”

Until her diagnosis in September of 2021, Mrs. Swims was still handling payroll, inventory, and race night office operations for both Dixie and Rome Speedways. Martha Swims, age 80, passed away on Saturday, July 16, 2022, in her home following her battle with cancer, with her husband, Mickey, and her daughter, Mia, at her bedside.

“Martha Swims was a matriarch of dirt track racing,” said Rick Schwallie, Lucas Oil late Model Dirt Series Director. “Dixie Speedway has been a pillar on the series schedule since its inception. We’re grateful for the dedication of the Swims family and their contributions to racing over the past six decades. The family remains in our thoughts and prayers during these difficult times.”

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will visit Talladega Short Track on Saturday, October 8th for a complete program of Dirt Draft Hot Laps, Allstar Performance Time Trials, Heat Race, B-Mains, and a 50-lap, $15,000-to-win main event.
