The Most Powerful Late Models on the Planet return to Cedar Lake Speedway Aug. 4-6 for the 35th annual USA Nationals.
The World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models will battle for three nights at the iconic 3/8-mile track, fighting for the historic eagle trophy.
It’s not just the trophy that’s up for grabs, as one driver has the chance to walk away with a potential $56,000 if they can sweep both Features at Cedar Lake.
Last season, Eldora Million winner Jonathan Davenport scored the $50,000 prize—his second triumph in the Late Model Crown Jewel.
