Excitement is Growing as the WOO Late Model Series invades I-55 on Saturday Sept.14th!
Fresh off their stop Friday at Belle-Clair Speedway the series slide south to Federated!
If there’s one near-certainty about the $10,000-to-win/$1,000-to-start Pevely Nationals on Saturday night (Sept. 14) at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., it’s that fans can expect a memorable, down-to-the-wire shootout for the 55-lap race’s top prize.
History is a great indicator of what’s in store at the high-banked, one-third-mile oval promoted by NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader and Ray Marler. There have been six WoO LMS events contested at I-55 since 2005 – last year’s Pepsi Nationals won by Dennis Erb Jr. – did not disappoint with the usual rip-roarin’, late-race battle for the checkered flag.
Consider the list of Pevely’s WoO LMS thrillers:* In 2005, Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., grabbed the lead from his protégé Shannon Babb of Moweaqua, Ill., late in the distance – just after Babb’s car spewed smoke due to a busted power-steering hose that left him wrestling his mount for the remainder of the race – and held on for a big victory on his road to winning that year’s WoO LMS title.
