World of Outlaws Late Model Series Shifts 2014 Season Opener To Florida’s Bubba Raceway Park

National Tour Will Not Sanction Feb. 7-8 ‘Winter Freeze’ At Georgia’s Screven Motor Speedway

By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director

CONCORD, NC – Jan. 10, 2013 – The 2014 World of Outlaws Late Model Series season will begin on Feb. 14-16 at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla., rather than the previous weekend at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga., as originally scheduled, series officials announced on Thursday.

A disagreement over tire rules prompted the national tour to drop its sanctioning of the Feb. 7-8 ‘Winter Freeze’ doubleheader at Screven, which was slated to kick off the WoO LMS campaign for the third consecutive year. WoO LMS officials had anticipated running the events under the four-compound DIRTcar UMP Hoosier LM tire rule – the mandate used in 2013 at Screven and earmarked for nine Florida events that follow this year’s Winter Freeze – but Screven promoter James ‘Redd’ Griffin preferred an open tire rule.
