BLODGETT - The SEMO Raceway of Blodgett will be featured in a five-part series on the Speed Channel.

The show, Lucas Oil on the Edge, will air at 6 p.m. Saturday on the Speed Channel.

The show features ATV flat track race filmed at the local raceway on Oct. 16.

"It is the first time that four-wheelers have aired on this show," said Robert Cooksey, co-owner of the track with his wife, Susan. "This is one of the five episodes with different classes of four-wheelers."
