ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Florida’s Blake Spencer will be venturing into new territory next season after confirming plans to join the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series.
Spencer will attempt to claim Rookie of the Year honors aboard the No. 6 Bozard Ford/Revolution Racing/Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/Durham Racing Engines super late model.
“In 2018 we raced in pretty much all of the series events for the first few months of the season to get a feel for some of the tracks. Then throughout the year we entered various series races to get more experience,” the 38-year-old Spencer said. “I’m still learning the Super Late Model ranks, so I know it will be a big challenge for us to follow the full tour. I’m very excited to be able to have this opportunity and want to thank all of the sponsors and supporters of my program.”
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series campaign opens on Feb. 8-9 at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga., with the annual Winter Freeze. The doubleheader will be highlighted by a pair of $10,000-to-win feature events. From there the tour moves to Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., on Feb. 13-16.
“It will be nice to start the season at a pair of tracks, where I have some experience,” Spencer said. “I’ll be seeing several tracks for the first time this year, so I know that the learning curve will be steep.”
