Prodigy Race Promotions on Sprint Car Insider. Driver Exclusive- Rancho Murieta, Calif. (December 29, 2019) -> Lucas Mauldin drove his way to a breakout season in 2019 amassing 12 wins and the Delta Speedway Jr Sprint track championship along the way.
Mauldin raced a total of 29 times in 2019 winning nearly half of them sustaining a 41% win rate. He won on three different tracks including Delta eight time, Plaza Park three times, and Dixon once. He also pulled off complete night sweeps at each facility. Mauldin accomplished the feat twice at Delta on May 4, and August 17, by winning both his heat races and the main event all in the same night. At Dixon and Plaza he pulled it off by qualifying fastest, winning the heat, as well as a dash at Dixon, and the night feature. It was done on August 24 at Dixon and September 6 at Plaza.
Following his return from the Clay Cup Mauldin did not finish worse than third from July 27th through the end of October including a five win streak from August 17th through September 6th which included three of his four night sweeps.
In addition to his 12 wins and incredible late summer, early fall stretch, Mauldin racked up 21 podiums in 29 features accounting for a 72% podium rate. He finished in the top five 24 times out of 29 races equaling an 82% top five rate. Perhaps one of the most astounding stats of Lucas Mauldin’s season were his 28 top tens in 29 races. His incredible consistency saw him finish within the top ten in every race he competed in, in the state of California. The only race Lucas Mauldin finished outside the top ten was on July 20th during the Clay Cup finale in Washington which saw him finish 11th.
Along the way he also picked up 20 heat race wins. With different formats at Plaza and Dixon with qualifying instead of two heats, six of his heat wins took place at the two facilities with a single quick time qualifying performance at each track as well . The other 16 heat race victories came at the site where he eventually became champion: Delta Speedway.
Speaking of Delta Speedway his path to the title consisted of 13 features with eight wins, 11 podiums, and top fives. He finished inside of the top ten in all 13 races. His season-low finish was 8th at night two of the Summer Sizzle. In fact besides his 6th on night one, and 8th on night two of that weekend, Lucas Mauldin finished on the podium in every other race at Delta this year.
In total he earned a 2nd Place average finish at Delta, 61% win rate, 84% podium rate, and 100% top ten rate. He put up 3/4 of his seasons total wins at Delta Speedway. He was far and away the most consistent and dominant driver in the class at Delta.
His path to claiming this title started with a win to kick off the points season in April. He followed that up with second at round two and redemption at round three. He got back into victory lane in early May before enduring a brief summertime drought. The Summer Sizzle is the lone blemish on Mauldin’s 2019 campaign. It was an uncharacteristic weekend with 6th and 8th place finishes posted. However, that’s another indication of the season he had, those two top ten finishes represent the two lowest runs of his entire year overall aside from the Clay Cup finale.
Lucas Mauldin’s other four victories on the year were notable as well. He picked up his first win at Plaza Park this year in April beating the likes of the eventual Plaza Park and Lemoore Raceway Jr Sprint Champions in doing so. He won again at Plaza on September 6th in part of a night sweep. On August 24th he went to Dixon Speedway and finished 1st every time he took to the track.
One of the most notable victories of his entire season came on September 21st at Plaza Park when he won the third annual Mark Hagopian Memorial. That night he became the third different Jr Sprint Champion of one of the fastest growing micro sprint events in the entire country. It was one of his most prestigious victories to date.
The 2019 season was a breakout year for Lucas Mauldin. Winning the Jr Sprint title at Delta Speedway, the Mark Hagopian Memorial title, along with 12 wins, and 21 podiums in just 29 features makes it completely astounding. Mauldin has earned a reputation as one of the best Jr Sprint racers in the country with his 2019 stats.
That status is going to cause a lot of heads to turn when the 55x rolls through the doors of the Tulsa Expo Center this week for the Tulsa Shootout. That’s right, Lucas Mauldin is about to be back behind the wheel this week in search of the most prestigious title in all of Micro Sprint Racing. It’s time for the 35th Annual Tulsa Shootout running from January 1-4, 2020 at the Tulsa Expo Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Mauldin hopes to kick off his 2020 season hoisting a Golden Driller Saturday night. Don’t miss a second of the action by purchasing the live stream on Racinboys.com
