Thornton Hitting The Road With Lucas Oil Late Models

ADEL, Iowa – On the heels of an impressive season where he claimed 38 victories across multiple divisions, Ricky Thornton Jr. is primed for a new challenge. Thornton will hit the road with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series next year, where he’ll compete for the national tour’s Rookie of the Year title in the SSI Motorsports No. “Since I was a little kid my goal has always been to race Late Models,” Thornton said. “Now, to be able to do it with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, it just makes it that much better. Thornton already has several podium appearances in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series to his credit, including a breakthrough victory earlier this year. A pair of events at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla. are set for Feb. 1-2, with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Speedweeks concluding at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Fla., Feb. 4-6.
