World of Outlaws to Start Support Series

PLANO, TX (August 9) - Due to the rapid growth of the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series in recent years, series Founder and President Ted Johnson announced Monday he will start a support series in 2000. "With our increased television coverage and the new tracks being built for us, it's time for us to start a support series," Johnson said. "This will 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. It will feature a substantial point fund and a competitive purse structure. The support series will use the same rules as the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series. Rick Ferkel will oversee the new series, with direction from the home office. "I'm excited to be back with the World of Outlaws," Ferkel said. "I raced with them in the early years and was an official for several more. I'm looking forward to helping start this new series." WoO
