MERIDIAN, Miss. -– Finally, Bub McCool has the luxury of a World of Outlaws Late Model Series event in his backyard.

The renowned national tour will makes its inaugural visit to Whynot Motorsports Park on Saturday, giving McCool, 35, of Vicksburg, Miss., his first chance to battle the World of Outlaws stars in his home state since becoming a circuit regular last year.

“”It’’s definitely nice to have an Outlaw show so close to the house,”” said McCool, who will seek to keep the $10,000 first-place check for Saturday night’s 50-lap WoO LMS A-Main from leaving Mississippi. “”We’’re on the road all year with the Outlaws, so, for a weekend anyway, we don’’t have to go so far. It makes things a little easier.”

Of course, with the three-eighths-mile Whynot oval located about 150 miles due east of McCool’’s home, he’’s far from being a true ‘local’ at the track. He’’s never even been a weekly competitor at the speedway. But considering the 2013 WoO LMS schedule will take McCool to such places as Fonda, N.Y. (approximately 1,375 miles from his doorstep), Winnipeg, Manitoba (1,475 miles), Cornwall, Ontario (1,480 miles) and Gillette, Wyo. (1,500 miles), a trip to Whynot for McCool, his family and his supporters is like a leisurely Saturday-afternoon drive.

Whynot Motorsports Park also happens to be one of the rare WoO LMS tracks where McCool won’’t lack in the experience department to such tour titans as Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., Rick Eckert of York, Pa., Shane Clanton of Fayetteville, Ga., and Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y. He owns a solid performance record at Whynot, recording five wins and 10 top-five finishes in 18 starts there since 2007.
