NDRL Sanctioning 2014 Winter Extreme
PITTSBURGH – The National Dirt Racing League has announced that the 2014 Winter Extreme at Tucson Int’l Raceway will carry the NDRL banner.
The six event mini-series that will start the 2014 racing season will be held Jan. 11-12, then after a three day break, Jan. 16 and run through Jan. 19.
“This is a big step for the NDRL,” owner John Kennedy stated. “The NDRL is growing more and more each day and this is a part of that. Really, this is the tip of the iceberg with what we have planned for 2014. Track owner Pat Robley and General Manager Jamie Throckmorton at Tucson Int’l Raceway have built the Winter Extreme into an event that we all look forward to, adding the NDRL into the equation will further extend the excitement and continue to build the Winter Extreme into even more of a must-see-event.”
The Winter Extreme has brought drivers from all over the country in the past and with the NDRL’s involvement in 2014, that trend should continue. Billy Moyer leads the all-time win list of Arizona’s January events with 11 total victories. Other drivers on the all-time victory list include Terry Phillips, Steve Francis, Jimmy Mars, John Anderson, Pat Doar, Don O’Neal, Tim Fuller, Ken Schrader, Tim McCreadie, Shane Clanton and Bub McCool.
“The Winter Extreme will continue to be what it always has been,” NDRL President Jason Shank said. “We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel with what the management team at Tucson Int’l Raceway have done in the past, however, we do want to add the NDRL flavor to the Winter Extreme. Drivers can expect higher payouts and fans can expect a few surprises as well. It’s an exciting time for the NDRL and we’re proud to become a part of the Winter Extreme.”
Further details including schedule, payouts, ticket prices and everything in between regarding the NDRL’s Winter Extreme series will be announced soon.
