WHEATLAND, Mo.—Track champions in all four divisions will be crowned Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway with the final week of the Budweiser Weekly Championship Series in action.

Bill Robert Chevrolet-Buick Season Championship Night Presented by KYOO-Your Country 99 & KPOW-Power 97.7 will wrap up the speedway's regular season.

"It's been a tremendous regular season in all four of our weekly divisions and some very deserving champions will be crowned on Saturday," Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson said. "Not only have our champions found their way into victory lane multiple times this season, their consistency has stood out, week after week. We'll be proud to salute them this week."

Jeff Cutshaw of Bolivar is on the verge of his third straight championship in the Pitts Homes USRA Modified division and J.C. Morton of Springfield leads the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

Cutshaw has a commanding 202-point lead over Jason Pursley after a second-place finish last week—Cutshaw's 10th top-three in a season that includes three wins.

Morton holds an 86-point lead over Richland's Tyler Brown after a solid fourth-place run last Saturday.

Morton has finished top-five in all but two of the 13 features this season.

Also on Saturday, the American Cancer Society hosts the Hickory County Relay for Life Cancer Survivor Night. Cancer survivors in attendance can sign-up for the 2016 Relay for Life at Lucas Oil Speedway and receive free admission to the race. It's also Public Safety Appreciation Night as all police, fire, and rescue personnel are admitted free with ID.

"Of course, while this wraps up the Budweiser Weekly Championship Series, there is a lot of racing remaining at Lucas Oil Speedway," Robinson said. "We're looking forward to big events in September and October."

Coming up Sept. 2-4 is the 6th annual Diamond Drag Boat Nationals as the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series returns to Lake Lucas. Also that weekend, on Sept. 3, is the Lucas Oil MLRA Larry Phillips Memorial on the dirt track with the Late Models joined by USRA Modifieds.
