Outlaws Unveil New Dash Format at Kings

HANFORD, CA (February 19) - The Channellock Dash took on a whole new look Friday when the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series opened its 1999 season at Kings Speedway. In years past, the race which determines the first eight starting positions in the "A" Feature included the eight fastest drivers to qualify for the "A" Feature. The new format calls for the four NAPA Auto Parts Heat Race winners to make up the first two rows inverted by their times. Positions five through eight are filled by the four fastest qualifiers who didn't win their heat races but still qualified for the feature, lined up straight-up by their time trials. The new format worked out perfectly for Joe Gaerte. Although he qualified 15th-quick - .474 seconds off Vivarin Fast-Time Award winner Danny Lasoski's pace - he received the pole position in the Channellock Dash as the fourth-fastest NAPA Auto Parts Heat Race winner. He earned the right to start the "A" Feature on the pole by driving the #8H Energy Release Maxim to victory in the Channellock Dash. WoO
