Driver roster, tentative schedule set for Camping World SRX Series finale at Lucas Oil Speedway

WHEATLAND, MO. (July 12, 2023) - It's just five week until some of the world's legendary drivers visit Lucas Oil Speedway to crown a champion in the Camping World SRX Series.

General admission tickets remain on sale for the Camping World SRX "Thursday Night Thunder" on Aug. 17 at Lucas Oil Speedway, the finale of the six-race series and determine the 2023 champion. All SRX races will air live on ESPN.

Drivers announced for the Lucas Oil Speedway event include NASCAR Cup Series champions Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski and Bobby Labonte, along with NASCAR drivers Kenny Wallace, Ken Schrader, Ryan Newman, Clint Bowyer and Hailie Deegan. Also on hand will be four-time Indy 500 winer Helio Castroneves, plus reigning SRX Champion Marco Andretti and fellow Indy-car driver Paul Tracy and Trans-Am champion Ernie Franics Jr.

The series will pit the drivers against one another in identically prepared cars with points accumulated in each of the six events.

"As the Camping World SRX Series begins its 2023 schedule this week at Stafford Motor Speedway, that just means the anticipation level for our event at Lucas Oil Speedway is really ramping up," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said. "As we expect a large walk-up crowd, we encourage fans to get their tickets in advance online to save time on race night."

Tickets for the SRX event are $35 in advance and $40 at the gate (ages 16 and over). Kids (ages 6-15) will be $20 with ages 5-and-under free. Advance tickets can now be purchased via Stubwire. Pit passes are $50 and must be purchased the day of the event.
