Swinging Through Wisconsin

Series kick starts August with five races in five days
CONCORD, NC- July 17, 2017– The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series will head to Wisconsin to spearhead the month of August with an action packed first five days of the month. Two events back-to-back will be a nice tune-up leading into the USA Nationals at Cedar Lake Speedway for the biggest payout of the season- $50,000.
On the first of the month, the Outlaws will invade OshKosh SpeedZone Raceway for the first time in Series history. Only a few Outlaw drivers have ever made laps on the third-mile clay oval, but everyone is up for the challenge because the best drivers in the country have to be prepared for anything and be able to adapt to everything.
Rookie of the Year contender, Devin Moran, has visited several new tracks this season as the tour has taken him to parts of the country he has never seen. With 15 top-10 finishes, including one win and four trips to the podium, the young driver is making a name for himself all over the country as one of the next big names in the industry.

NEW RICHMOND, Wisc. – August 6, 2016 – Josh Richards won his second career USA Nationals finale Saturday night at Cedar Lake Speedway. The victory marked his 20th of the season (13th in the series) and 71st of his career in the World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series – one win from tying for the all-time series record.

“I don’t know what to say… I’m speechless,” said Richards, winning the $50,000 purse. “I can’t thank everyone enough for coming out. This car has been so fun to drive. This is awesome.”

The caution-filled night began with the 100-lap feature’s first on lap 10. Jonathan Davenport, who started runner-up to Shane Clanton, suffered a flat right rear tire. It seemed “Superman” had found his Kryptonite, as he veered off into the pits. The other 30 cars moved-up for the restart; Richards and Mason Zeigler shared the podium with Clanton.

Feger Pulls Away for Win

Shane Clanton to lead field into the green flag for Saturday’s 100-lap finale

NEW RICHMOND, Wisc. – August 5, 2016 – Jason Feger ran away with the FANSFund Dash Friday night at Cedar Lake Speedway. Feger started the day from qualifying toward the back of the pack to placing third in his heat. He heated up as the night went on, capitalizing when it mattered the most to win the $2,500 purse.

Feger led the 12-driver field into the green flag for the 12-lap shootout. Rookie of the Year contender Tyler Erb was to start 13th in the show, but mechanical issues prevented him from competing. Once the green flag waved the field in, the “High-side Hustler” did what he does best, rising to the top of the track with his No. 25F Cheap Cars/ Floyd’s Waste Systems Black Diamond racecar.

“It’s the fastest track we’ve been on all weekend,” said Feger, who took advantage of the track preparation before the race. “We were able to get to the top of the track there on the cushion, and it was pretty easy to run on. I just held it on the floor for 12 laps and made sure I didn’t jump over the berm.”
