Clanton aims to repeat, McCreadie seeks victory that got away
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — March 20, 2014 — In just a little over a week the stars and cars of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series will thunder into I-30 Speedway on Saturday, March 29, for an event that boasts a $10,000 top prize and a total purse of over $50,000 at the quarter-mile oval.
The tour made its debut at the facility in 2013 and great crowd and field of cars converged on “Hammer Hill” with Shane Clanton, of Zebulon, Ga., scoring the win after leader Tim McCreadie, of Watertown, N.Y., encountered issues late in the race in lapped traffic.

A strong field of national, regional and local competitors also have their sights set on claiming the big money in the event including Billy Moyer, Billy Moyer Jr., Jared Landers, Wendell Wallace, Timothy Culp, Robert Baker, Kyle Bronson, Jon Mitchell, Kyle Beard, Tommy Surrett, Chandler Petty, Raymond Merrill, Garrett Alberson, and many more.
Entries from more than 10 states are expected to be in action.
Promoter Tracey Clay notes, “I was really excited to have the World of Outlaws here in 2013, and we are even more excited to have them here again in 2014. The phone has been ringing off the hook for the past few weeks with calls from fans and racers. We expect a near record crowd for this event.”
