In an off-season seemingly filled with announcements of Dirt Late Model drivers who intend to run one national touring series or the other, two more drivers have opted to enter the World of Outlaws Late Model Series fray. Or actually, two drivers have announced that they will return to the WoO Late Models tour in 2018.
Brandon Overton and his Chip Stone/Randy Weaver owned Dream Racing team made it known last week that they will seek the WoO Late Models crown in 2018. The Crossville, Tenn. based organization will compete in the first 15 events of the season on that series and will decide after the First in Flight 100 in Fayetteville, NC on the weekend of May 11 and 12 whether or not they will continue further.
The 26-year-old Overton was the 2015 Rookie of the Year on the WoO circuit and then followed that up with a fourth place result in the final series standings in 2016. Last year, the Dream Racing crew focused on a regional schedule which netted them the Southern Nationals Series championship and multiple national touring series wins, including a $30,000 triumph in the WoO sanctioned Firecracker 100 at Pennsylvania’s Lernerville Speedway.
Moyer announced via Twitter on Friday(Dec. 29) that he had received approval from sponsor Steve Martin of Crop Production Services to return to the WoO Late Model Series. The 29-year-old Arkansas racer competed on the WoO tour in 2016 and scored two victories along with a fifth place finish in the final point standings.
Moyer ran a regional schedule in 2017 which resulted in nine feature victories, including four wins on the Summer Nationals ‘Hell Tour’ Series. However, the father-to-be did point out that his daughter is due to arrive in April, which could cause an interruption in his racing schedule.
“I hope we can get another top-5 in points and add to our World of Outlaws win total,” Moyer declared in the Twitter post.
