to Undergo Fifth Knee Surgery; Out Until June...
3, 2018) Scott
James announced today that he will be forced to undergo a partial
knee replacement surgery shortly, which will put the Lawrenceburg,
Indiana native out of racing action until probably June. Scott,
who underwent a pair of procedures on the same knee last year, felt
a pop in his knee while at work and it was determined at a recent
doctor visit that another surgery would be needed. As of now, Scott
is looking at a 6-8 week rehab, which would hopefully allow him
to return to competition with the Dolhun Motorsports team at or
right before the $100,000 to win 'Dirt Late Model Dream' at Eldora
(OH) Speedway. More information will be posted on the website as
it becomes available!

to the historic Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa on Thursday,

but also from the entire weekend and will not be able to fight for
the $40,000 payday on Saturday evening. Full results from the 'Lucas
