WoO Late Models Set For Hibbing Debut
CONCORD, N.C. – The World of Outlaws Late Model Series makes its debut at Hibbing (Minn.) Raceway on July 10, kicking off the series’ tour through the upper Midwest.
The event will feature the Outlaws battling many of the WISSOTA stars in a $10,000-to-win, 50-lap race at the 3/8-mile dirt oval in northeastern Minnesota.
“It’s all people are talking about,” said promoter Rudy Aho. “We have a big late model following, (so) this is going to be huge.”
Aho Wisconsin’s Brady Smith, a winner earlier this year against the Outlaws in Florida and a frequent competitor at Hibbing, use his knowledge of the track to thrill the crowd.
“There are great late model drivers in the upper Midwest and we’re looking forward to racing with them at Hibbing,” series director Tim Christman said. “Rudy is definitely excited to see how they stack up at his track against Darrell Lanigan, Rick Eckert, Tim McCreadie, Shane Clanton and all the guys.”
The race at Hibbing launches the Wild West Tour, which also includes races at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. July 12, Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D. July 15, and River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. July 18.
