NEW RICHMOND, WI— Aug. 5, 2017—  The 30th Annual USA Nationals presented the largest payout for a World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series event for the 2017 season. The crown jewel brought 42 Late Models to the Cedar Lake Speedway stage, all of whom were trying to claim a piece of a near $200,000 purse for the three-day show.

For the 100-lap finale, Don O’Neal worked his way from a fourth position start to claim the checkers on Saturday night. He pulled out of the 3/8-mile with the coveted eagle trophy and $50,000 richer.
