O'NEAL DOES SOME OPEN WHEEL RACING
ON LUCAS OFF-WEEKEND!
13, 2018) On a rare off-weekend for the Lucas Oil Late
Model Dirt Series, Hudson O'Neal took advantage of the opportunity
to do some open wheel racing over the May 11-12 weekend in Indiana
and Illinois. On Friday night in a 410 non-wing sprint at the
storied Bloomington Speedway in Bloomington, Indiana, Hudson drove
Cam Potorff's machine to a fourth place heat race finish and a
ninth place effort in the 25-lap headliner. At the tiny Macon
Speedway in Macon, Illinois on Saturday evening, Hudson drove
a #3ON POWRi Midget out of the Jake Neuman Racing stable. The
young Martinsville, Indiana ace placed fifth in his heat race
and third in his B-Main before an incident took him out of the
30-lap feature running tenth, which relegated him to a disappointing
twentieth place performance. Full results from both weekend races
