Donnie Allison Named Grand Marshal for Georgetown Lucas Oil Late Model Event April 26

GEORGETOWN, DE – A star-studded night.

On Friday, April 26, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series makes its second-ever stop in the state of Delaware with the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial at Georgetown Speedway.

The nation’s top Super Late Model stars converge for a massive $19,049 winner’s share for 49 laps around the progressively banked four-tenths-mile oval.

Legendary Donnie Allison – a 2024 inductee into the NASCAR Hall of Fame – has been named the Grand Marshal for the Melvin L. Joseph Memorial.

Allison, a member of the “Alabama Gang” and ambassador for the sport for more than 50 years, will be on hand to meet fans and share stories from his career.

Allison will sign autographs from 5-6 p.m. in the grandstand area on Race Day.

He will also address the crowd prior to Opening Ceremonies.

Allison was the 1967 Cup Series Rookie of the Year after getting his start in Modifieds and working his way to the top level of auto racing. Allison won the 1970 Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, N.C., and finished fourth in the Indianapolis 500 the next weekend, the best combined finish in the two-race crossover that still stands today.

Allison, of course, is best known for his role in NASCAR’s most famous moment involving his brother Bobby: the 1979 fight with Cale Yarborough in the Daytona 500 during the first nationally televised NASCAR event.

The record books credit Donnie Allison with 10 victories, 28 poles and 78 top-five finishes on the Cup level, not to mention hundreds of victories on the short tracks of the Southeast.

Last August, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series made its rousing debut at Georgetown with Ricky Thornton Jr. picking up a dramatic victory. Thornton sits atop the standings as the series returns April 26.

The Lucas field will be boosted by NASCAR Cup Series star Ross Chastain, who will sign autographs at 6 p.m. and plans to compete in the event with a Ken Adams-backed Super Late Model in the event.

On April 26, pit gates open at 3 p.m., with grandstand gates unlocked at 4 p.m. Hot laps begin at 6:30 p.m. and racing starts at 7:30 p.m.

Grandstand admission is $40 (Adults), $35 for Seniors (ages 65 and over) and Students (ages 13-17), $10 for Kids (ages 9-12) and Children 8 and under are FREE.

All seating is general admission in the grandstands.

Pit admission is $45 (ages 13 and up), $10 Kids (ages 6-12) and $2 Children (ages 5 and under).

Little Lincolns, Delaware Super Trucks and Feebs Distilling Delmarva Chargers complete the program.

The entire night of racing will be broadcast live on FloRacing (www.floracing.tv) via the annual subscription.

Georgetown Speedway, originally constructed by Melvin L. Joseph in 1949, is located at the intersection of Route 113 and Speedway Road in Georgetown, Del., just miles from the Delaware beaches and less than a 40-minute drive from Ocean City, Md.
