I have to admit that I barely can contain my giddiness. Last years WoO Late Model series race was exciting and I am hoping the sequel will be just as exciting. The only disappointment from last season that more people didn't see this great show.
There are only two things that could will prevent this from being a really good show, the weather and if the River Cities Race track staff can't keep this high banked oval track from getting too dry. This happened last summer during the John Seitz memorial. This hopefully won't be a problem because they are only going to have the late models and the sprints. Hold on to your hats this 50 lap feature should be one of the better races you will see at River Cities Speedway this season.
Grand Forks, ND — By Kevin Kovac, WoO LMS P.R. Director
Tim Fuller had never been in the state of North Dakota until he competed in last year’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series event at River Cities Speedway.
After punctuating that visit with his first-ever victory on the national tour, the resident of Watertown, N.Y., can’t wait to return on Friday night (July 11) for the high-banked, quarter-mile oval’s 50-lap WoO LMS A-Main.
“I have real good memories of that place,” Fuller said with a smile when asked about the site of his milestone triumph. “You never forget the track where you get your first big win.”
A veteran Northeast DIRTcar big-block Modified star who switched his focus to dirt Late Model racing last season, Fuller made his River Cities trip the highlight of his run to the 2007 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year title. He pulled off a dramatic win, passing Eddie Carrier Jr. of Salt Rock, W.Va., for the lead with just four laps remaining in a whirlwind 50-lapper that was widely acknowledged as one of the most exciting races on last year’s tour.
“It was a dream to win the way we did,” recalled the 40-year-old Fuller. “It was just one of those nights when the stars and the moon lined up right – the racetrack was good, we picked the right tires, and I was in the right place at the right time to get by Carrier in lapped traffic.”
