When the weather interferes and won’t let guys race as they had planned, they might as well have a little fun on social media. Well, at least that’s what happened this weekend after the World of Outlaws Late Model Series races scheduled for this Friday and Saturday nights at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tennessee and Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee were postponed due to rain. Those two events have been re-set for March 22nd and 23rd respectively.
To help promote the two races, the World of Outlaws Late Model Series official Twitter account posted a little fact that pertained to the two rescheduled events in the Volunteer State.
Soon afterwards, two former WoO Late Models champions got involved.
@WoOLateModels tweeted: #FastFridayFact- Since the 1989 Series debut in the state of Tennessee, there have been a total of 32 races completed at 10 different tracks with 17 different winners. @clanton25 and @Bloomquist_25 are tied for the most wins in the state with 4 apiece.
The series then added: #WoOLMS action from Tennessee resumes in exactly TWO WEEKS @DRRPLLC and @smokymtnspeed!
Scott Bloomquist(@Bloomquist_0) replied to that initial tweet saying: “I don’t like being tied”
To which Shane Clanton(@clanton25) countered by saying that intends to break the tie at Duck River and Smoky Mountain: “Don’t worry plan on adding 2 more to mine in 2 weeks”
The @WoOLateModels account added to the fun with:
“Looks like we have a disagreement here… let’s poll the fans. RT for @Bloomquist_0 like for @clanton25. Can either of these former #WoOLMS champs pickup a win in Tennessee? Watch this battle unfold in just TWO WEEKS @DRRPLLC and @smokymtnspeed, live on @dirtvision!”
Hey, if you can’t race, might as well have some fun.
