by Chris McWilliams on March 25, 2011
For the sixth consecutive year, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will sanction the $10,000 to win 14th Annual Indiana Icebreaker originally scheduled for Saturday, March 26th at the Brownstown (IN) Speedway. However the event like many others across the country had to be rescheduled due to very cold conditions. The event was going to mark the first stop after the DART Winternationals on the Sunoco Race Fuels Road to Wheatland in 2011 as 15 drivers with perfect attendance will be eligible for the $700 winners circle money once again as they make their way across America, heading to the 19th Annual DART Show-Me 100 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.
