Francis wins Early Thaw championship

Steve Francis stormed his way to two victories and five top-five finishes to clinch the championship of the five-race Early Thaw series, which concluded last weekend in Casa Grande, Ariz.

Francis, driving a Mopar-powered, Dodge-bodied late model dirt car owned by Larry Moring, was the only driver to win multiple races in the rain-shortened tournament.

"Larry and his crew gave me some fast cars in Arizona," Francis said. "I am happy that we gave Mopar some wins this early in the season. We are leaving this weekend for Florida, and hopefully we'll take the momentum from Arizona and win some races in Florida."

Francis and his Mopar team are scheduled to compete in the inaugural World of Outlaws Late Model Series event Feb. 2 at Volusia Speedway Park in Daytona, Fla. Francis is set to campaign his Mopar-powered late model in the WoO-LMS this season, while also competing in various other late model dirt series.
