2017 Unraveled and Unfiltered
CONCORD, N.C. – Jan. 13, 2017 – The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series gains a few new bruisers and everyone is gearing up for the season’s first shootout in 2017. The drivers and their crews will travel across familiar and unfamiliar terrain in hopes of keeping the title of the fastest guys around. The first real test for the traveling band will be a double header in February at Screven Motorsports Complex for Winter Freeze VII and Volusia Speedway Park for DIRTcar Nationals. With new names on the books for the 2017 season, anything could happen as we race toward World Finals in November.

World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing partner with Racing with Jesus Ministries
CONCORD, N.C. — Dec. 30, 2016 — Amidst all the race day hoopla, drivers, team members and officials found peace in one place at Thompson (Conn.) Speedway. Under a nearby shade tree, Reverend Pat Evans instilled both belief and the power of God in everyone under the limbs before hot laps. Evans offered guidance through The Word of the Lord, which eventually blossomed into “Racing with Jesus Ministries” in October 1980. Evans nurtured the “Racer’s Church” for 25 years until his passing.
"The Craftsman® brand has quickly become an important member of the dirt track racing community, as title sponsor of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series. The announcement of Stanley Black & Decker's agreement to purchase the Craftsman brand is exciting for everyone involved and we look forward to the opportunities that it will create. We are operating business as usual under a multi-year agreement for both Sears and Craftsman to continue as valued partners of the World of Outlaws."
