SYLVANIA, GA – Feb. 9, 2013 – Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., reached a World of Outlaws Late Model Series milestone in style, holding off a furious late-race challenge from Shane Clanton of Fayetteville, Ga., to capture Saturday night’s 50-lap ‘Winter Freeze’ finale at Screven Motor Speedway.
The returning two-time champion was never headed after passing Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., for the lead on lap six, but the outcome was in doubt all the way to the checkered flag. Richards had to contend with heavy lapped traffic and a hungry Clanton over the final circuits to register his 40th career victory on the WoO LMS and collect $10,150.
