Two-Time Defending Tour Champion Inches Closer To Eckert In Points Standings With Flawless Effort
PEVELY, MO – Sept. 17, 2011 – Josh Richards continued his assault on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series record book – and the top spot in the points standings – with a convincing victory in Saturday night’s 29th annual Pepsi Nationals at I-55 Raceway.
The national tour’s two-time defending champion was flawless in the 55-lap A-Main. He roared off the outside pole to grab the lead at the start and never looked back, controlling the entire distance without facing a single serious challenge.

St. Louis-Area Tracks Provide Attractive Action-Packed Doubleheader For Fans & Teams
CONCORD, NC – Sept. 12, 2011 – Rick Eckert has tried all season to avoid thoughts of the $100,000 World of Outlaws Late Model Series championship prize, but he can no longer simply disregard the obvious.
When the national tour invades the Midwest this weekend for a huge doubleheader at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, Ill., on Friday night (Sept. 16) and I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo., on Saturday evening (Sept. 17), Eckert’s focus will be set squarely on doing what it takes to top a points battle that he has led since early May.
Pevely, MO (September 3rd, 2011) I-55 Raceway dodged the rain and had a packed house for the Fan Appreciation Night and Kids Nickel Race.
Randy Korte of Highland, Illinois dominated the UMP DIRTcar Late Model main event and claimed his second win of 2011 at I-55 Raceway. As Korte paced the field by a comfortable margin, second place would have a three car battle raging for most of the event. Michael Kloos, Dave Jumper and Rickey Frankel would fight hard for the second spot until Kloos would gain control of it around lap twenty and hang on for a second place finish. Jumper would beat Frankel to the line to finish third. Mark Miner would finish fifth behind Frankel.
