June (By Tyson Graves)
For a time, we wondered if we would see big events ran in 2020. The Firecracker 100 is a staple ran the weekend before the 4th of July every year. This year’s event format was adjusted a little to accommodate a live showing on CBS Sports Network. Two preliminary features of 25 laps and a 50 lap $30,000 to win finale made up this year’s event.
This year’s World of Outlaws event was all Cade Dillard. Cade has been a rising star on the national tour. Picking up a couple of Outlaw wins the past couple seasons now. The $30,000 win was the biggest payday in young Louisianan’s life. Look for more out of the driver of the #97 in years to come. Dillard’s previous big payday was $20,001 payday in the USRA Modified Nationals in 2019.
