Since coming to Lucas Oil Speedway in 2007 and quickly working his way through the ranks, the track has enjoyed unparalleled success at the dirt oval and with the addition of the drag boat lake in 2011 and off-road track in 2016. Robinson has presided over a diverse schedule of events at the dirt track, including weekly races, the nationally televised Show-Me 100, Diamond Nationals and ASCS Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

In a related move, Danny Lorton (pictured at right) has been elevated to Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager. Lorton had previously been Assistant General Manager and Competition Director at the Wheatland, Missouri motorsports complex since December of 2015.

Lorton was a co-founder of the United Late Model Association, a cost-affordable series for Late Models in 2006, as well as serving on the ULMA Board of Directors until the Lucas Oil MLRA and its Series Director, Ernie Leftwich, began overseeing the series in 2018.

Lorton remained active as a racer until 2013 when he was named Race/Competition Director of the Randolph County Raceway in Moberly. He spent three years there until his hiring as Lucas Oil Speedway's Assistant General Manager in December of 2015.

Robinson and Lorton will begin a search for a new Lucas Oil Speedway Assistant General Manager with more information to be posted over the next few weeks at LucasOilSpeedway.com.
