Summer Nationals

2020 Schedule Includes DIRTcar Fall Nationals!

Over the weekend, we were thrilled to announce that we are the home of the 2020 DIRTcar Fall Nationals, October 1-3, 2020. This is a huge event for Lincoln Speedway as well as all the surrounding community!   We know our drivers are pumped up about it and we feel that Lincoln Speedway is a great place for it. From Hornets all the way up to Super Late Models, Lincoln Speedway is the perfect size track to fit all classes. Not too big, not too small, just right and centrally located for all involved.   We are still working on finalizing the details as far as daily schedules, purses, etc. Those should be coming out soon.   The full 2020 schedule for Lincoln Speedway is also out. While it’s still tentative and subject to change, we don’t foresee any major changes to dates, etc.
