CONCORD, N.C. – official series release —
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series has added Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C., to the series schedule on Friday, April 29.
It will be the first time ever that the four-tenths-mile, high-banked clay oval, 20 miles east of Charlotte has hosted the series.
“Carolina Speedway is a great addition to the schedule,” said World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series Director Tim Christman. “The opportunity to take on a new track during our spring swing through North Carolina is exciting. We look forward to writing a new chapter in series history with Carolina this season.”
Joining the World of Outlaws that Friday will be a full slate of other divisions including crate sportsman, street stocks and 4-cylinders.
Dennis Franklin, who is new to the World of Outlaws full-time field this season and hails from nearby Gaffney, S.C., comes into the track with a close connection and experience.
“I’m glad we have a race close to our hometown,” Franklin said. “It isn’t really our hometown track, but it’s the closest one we’ll run. I hope we win it. Expect to see some side-by-side, action-packed racing. It’s a good race track.”
