Concord, N.C. -- Dec. 7, 2006 -- Dirt racing history will be made in 2007 at The Dirt Track @ Lowes Motor Speedway. For the first time, the World of Outlaws and the World of Outlaws Late Models will share the bill for the inaugural Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway.
The unprecedented Nov. 1-3 Outlaws World Finals will crown the champion for both the greatest sprint car drivers and the best collection of late model racers in the world. It will feature qualifying on Thursday followed by two full nights of racing on Friday and Saturday, including $10,000-to-win A-main races on each night for the World of Outlaws and for the World of Outlaws Late Models.
"The World Finals is the event that all dirt racing fans have been dreaming of for years. This is a spectacular way to wrap up the 2007 season for not only the World of Outlaws and the World of Outlaws Late Models, but for dirt track fans everywhere," said DIRT MotorSports President and CEO Tom Deery. "With qualifying on the first night, including unprecedented access to competitors, and two solid nights of pure dirt racing, we are excited to be working with such a world class facility as The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway."
"Bringing the world's two premier dirt track series together is a tremendous way to conclude the 2007 season," said H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway. "There are only a few marquee dirt track events that attract fans from across the country and the Outlaws World Finals will join that prestigious list. We look forward to working with World of Outlaws officials and competitors to make this a destination event for all dirt racing fans."
In each of the past three years, the World of Outlaws Late Model title was decided on the final night of the season, with Tim McCreadie wrapping up the championship in 2006 a year after Billy Moyer claimed the 2005 title after a tiebreaker.
The superstars of sprint car racing are competing with the World of Outlaws in 2007 as Donny Schatz takes aim at his second consecutive championship while Steve Kinser seeks his record 21st crown and Danny Lasoski tries for his second title and first since 2001. With the unparalleled competition, the championship race is expected to be one of the most hotly contested titles in the near 30-year history of the series.
The Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway will be the culmination of an entire season of about 90 World of Outlaws events and 50 World of Outlaws Late Model races -- all seen or heard on ESPN2, SPEED or DIRTVision.com.
