WHEATLAND, MO. (April 3, 2023) – The United States Racing Association and Lucas Oil Speedway on Monday announced sanctions and fines for USRA B-Mod driver Kris Jackson and USRA Stock Cars driver Bryan White, for post-race behavior last Saturday night.

Jackson will be fined $500, suspended from all USRA-sanctioned events for two weeks and put on a one-year probationary period. Jackson won the feature, but was penalized for his post-race comments, aired live on Flo Racing as part of a MAVTV Motorsports production.

White’s penalty stems from a post-race altercation with his race car striking the rear of race-winner David Hendrix and shoving it down the front stretch as safety workers were rushing to the scene. He was fined by the USRA $500, suspended for 14 days and put on a one-year probation.

Lucas Oil Speedway also imposed a four-week suspension on White and a loss off all Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series points accumulated so far this season. White’s speedway suspension is due to end on May 6 (barring rain outs, in which case it would be carried over an additional week).

“Actions like this from both drivers will not be tolerated and are unsportsmanlike conduct that is detrimental to the sport. Actions like these cannot be tolerated,” Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Danny Lorton said, noting that he and USRA President Todd Staley reviewed videos of the incidents.

“I would like to apologize to the fans who had to witness these actions,” Lorton added.

Other drivers involved in the last-lap incidents in both the Stock Cars and B-Mod features also will be placed on probationary periods to be determined by the USRA.

Both drivers’ actions violated the following USRA rule involving conduct:

USRA Rule Section 3: Conduct 3.1 – “Participants will conduct themselves as professionals. Any conduct or actions by a participant deemed inappropriate and/or unsportsmanlike by the USRA shall be grounds for disqualification and/or punitive action by the USRA. This will be strictly enforced.”

Lorton said White’s incident involved using his car to put others’ lives at risk, leading to the longer suspension and loss of points.

Unsportsmanlike conduct: “Any driver/crew member/participant found by Lucas Oil Speedway officials to be engaging in unsportsmanlike behavior or any inappropriate behavior that affects the orderly conduct of an event, the interests of racing, or Lucas Oil Speedway will receive a penalty.”

Published

on

The Missouri State Lady Bears (20-7, 14-4 MVC) are set to face the UIC Flames (16-13, 9-9 MVC) on Thursday, March 7, at 7:00 p.m. CT in Chicago. The Lady Bears are looking to secure their first road win in series history against the Flames, having lost both previous road games in 1983 and 1984.

Led by point guard Lacy Stokes, who has earned MVC Newcomer of the Week honors eight times this season, the Lady Bears have won three consecutive games in the series against the Flames. Stokes averages 19.0 points, 5.0 assists, and 5.0 steals per game while shooting .733 from the field and .750 from the free-throw line.

The Lady Bears have been dominant defensively this season, ranking second in the Valley in scoring defense, allowing just 63.0 points per game. They also lead the MVC in rebounding defense, allowing just 30.2 boards per game, and boast a rebounding margin of +6.1, trailing only first-place Drake.

Offensively, the Lady Bears are 6-0 in games decided by five points or less and 3-0 in one-point games this season. They have won those six games by a total of 15 points.

Key players to watch for the Lady Bears include Kennedy Taylor, who leads the team in rebounding with 7.6 boards per game and is the second-leading scorer in conference play with 11.2 points per game. She also leads the team in field goal percentage, shooting .537 from the field.

A win against UIC would not only mark the Lady Bears’ first road win in the series but also their fourth consecutive win against the Flames. It would also keep the Lady Bears within the top three of the MVC standings heading into the regular season finale.
