Dillon, S.C., October 8, 2013: ASA-sanctioned, Dillon Motor Speedway announced Ricky Locklair Jr. as the winner of the Drive of a Lifetime promotion on Saturday, October 5.
Dillon Motor Speedway and RacewayAutomotive.com will completely fund the efforts for Ricky Locklair Jr. and his team to compete in a Late Model during the 10th annual Fall Spectacular on October 18-20 when the Southeast Limited Late Model division visits the speedway.
“This is a chance for a lucky qualified approved driver to get behind the wheel of a high-horse powered late model racecar that he/she may not either have enough funds to drive on their own or if perhaps, a driver is thinking about having a great experience driving a Late Model on the familiar DMS track,” track owner Ron Barfield said. “The Late Model division is our premier series, and we wanted to give our local drivers a chance to experience the thrill, and live the dream that have not driven a late model in 2013.”
To be eligible for the promotion, a drive had to compete in the Charger, Street Stock, Pure Stock Four or Mini Cup division. The driver also had to compete in every points event with the exception of only one mulligan. On Saturday night, each driver’s name was pulled in a drawing on the frontstretch, and the last man/women standing was the winner.
Ricky Locklair Jr., a 21 year old from Darlington, S.C. competes in the Street Stock division on a weekly basis and has one win this season. He was one of 10 competitors that were eligible for the unique promotion.
