PLANO, TX (September 24) - A title sponsor and a schedule of events for the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series' support series should be released by mid-October, President Ted Johnson announced Friday. "We're looking forward to having many young drivers race with us in 2000," Johnson said. "With our increased television coverage and the new tracks being built for us, it's time for us to start a support series so we can provide valuable experience for the young racers." Johnson said the new series will race at various facilities and support the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series at nationally televised events on TNN Motorsports. It will feature a point fund of at least $100,000 and a competitive purse structure. The support series will use the same rules as the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. Rick Ferkel, a former standout driver and series official, will oversee the new series, with direction from the home office. "I'm really excited to be back with the World of Outlaws," Ferkel said. "I'm looking forward to helping start this new series."
