WoO Late Models Add North Alabama


TUSCUMBIA, Ala. — The World of Outlaws Late Model Series will end a five-year absence from the racing calendar at North Alabama Speedway April 27, series and track officials have announced.

The addition of the $10,000-to-win, 50-lap event at the one-third-mile oval near Tuscumbia, Ala., sets up a springtime southern doubleheader for the WoO LMS. The national tour will visit the high-banked Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway April 28.

The WoO LMS last appeared at North Alabama March 25, 2007. Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, Fla., was victorious in a 40-lap A-Main.

“This is going to be the biggest race we’ve ever had here at North Alabama Speedway,” said track owner/promoter Jeff Greer, who will operate the facility on a specials-only slate in 2012. “We’re really looking forward to bringing the World of Outlaws Late Model Series back and giving our fans a huge early-season show.”

North Alabama becomes the 34th track on the 2012 WoO LMS schedule. The series currently lists 48 race dates comprising 43 A-Mains in 19 states and three Canadian provinces.
