Rain Cancels World of Outlaws Late Models at Smoky Mountain
Series rolls Sunday to Tennessee’s Duck River Raceway Park
By Chris Tilley
MARYVILLE, Tenn. – May 17, 2014 – Continuing rain in East Tennessee combined with cool temperatures forced World of Outlaws Late Model Series and Smoky Mountain Speedway officials to cancel the Second Annual “Mountain Outlaw 50″ event scheduled for Saturday night.
No immediate decision has been made on a rain date.
“It’s unfortunate for the fans who wanted to see the Outlaws tonight. We’ve really had a great outpouring of support for this event and it’s a shame that the weather didn’t cooperate with this weekend’s race,” stated Series Director Tim Christman. “We want to thank the entire crew at Smoky Mountain for their hard work that’s gone into putting this event together, and we look forward to working with them in the future.”
The series will now turn its attention to the remaining event on the weekend schedule as the WoO LMS tour will roll into the Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tenn., for the 50-lap $10,000-to-win event.
Gates on Sunday at Duck River Raceway Park will open at Noon central time with hot laps slated for 4:30 p.m.
A full show of Practice, Ohlins Shocks Qualifying, Heat Races, Last Chance Showdowns and the 50-lap main will be on Sunday for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors.
For the Duck River event, competing teams will be restricted to using Hoosier 1300, 1350, 1450, 1600 and 55-compound tires or American Racer 44, 48, 53 and 56-compound rubber. All of the tires will be required to punch a minimum ’40’ reading when checked with a durometer.
