CONCORD, NC— Nov. 4, 2017— The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series hit the track for the last time in 2017 on Saturday at The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the Textron Off Road World Finals. Saving the best for last, the late model series was the final feature to take on the 4/10s-mile oval. When the checker flag waved after 50-laps it was Dennis Erb Jr. who came out on top in front of a sold-out show.
