Richards and McCreadie Sweep Time Trials

Times Determined Friday's and Saturday's Heat Race Lineups

CONCORD, N.C. — Oct. 27, 2016— The World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series took to The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Thursday for the first night of the Bad Boy Off Road World of Outlaws World Finals. It was not a slow ease into the weekend of racing for the 69 Late Model drivers, as they had to hit the dirt hot and heavy to claim their spots in the feature for the next two evenings of World Finals right off the bat.

The night held one round of Hot Laps and two rounds of Time Trials for The Outlaw Late Models. The first round of Time Trials set the lineup for Friday’s Heat Races and likewise the second round of Time Trials placed the drivers for Saturday’s Heat Races.

Tim McCreadie hit the track with authority and showed no mercy to his opponents as he claimed the fastest time during the first round of Time Trials with a lap time of 14.761. Only seven drivers of the 69 cars entered were able to break a 15-second lap time including: Chris Madden, Shane Clanton, Dale Hollidge, Austin Smith, Josh Richards and Dale McDowell. McCreadie held the fastest lap overall and the fastest in Flight A. Richards took the top spot for Flight B with a 14.809 lap time.

“You know qualifying means a lot and usually in the heats it’s fairly tacky. It’s hard to make a lot of time up so you know going out there and putting on a good lap it helps. That’s why we’re here -- we want to line up out front in the clean air,” said McCreadie.

In round two of Time Trials, Richards held on to the fastest lap with a time of 14.876. He was the only driver to break the 15-second barrier during the second round. Richards was the fastest in his flight and the fastest over all. McCreadie held on to be the fastest in Flight B with a 15.052.

After taking over tonight’s fastest time in his flight, ultimately granting him a starting position on the front row for both of his Heat Races on Friday and Saturday, Richards is gaining ground on beating the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series single-season win record which he is only one feature-win away from claiming. Although tonight McCreadie proved tonight he may be the man to beat as he and Richards claimed the top positions for both rounds of Time Trials.

“Everywhere we go we want to win, that’s why we do it,” said McCreadie. “We work pretty hard on this car and we put it together and did some practicing with it and it’s been a lot of effort from everybody on this car so it’s exciting to see it happen, well at least in qualifying so far. We want to win, we want them both, if we’re lucky.”
