Lucas has been wanting this race for well over 5yrs... wrg contracted ended.. lucas goes to Thomson's and offers to add another 20k to win thru big river steel and more purse money...it was an offer the owners couldn't pass up (yes their responsible for the 30k to win and rest of purse).. plus the race will be on national tv. It's a deal Thomson's couldn't pass up.
The interesting thing is that a lot of fans asked for Lucas, (me included), and some for the Firecracker to be Lucas. I guess the cliche about being careful what you wish for comes to mind.
I wonder how much of this GM Mike had to do with. He seems to be a good promoter, and I can't imagine him losing the All Stars too, but I don't really know.
As far as all stars. Watch the garage crawl on their website. Mike said all stars will be there.
