Willie Milliken Masters Tar Heel 100 Sweep
Brian Shirley battles for a second place finish
Fayetteville, N.C. - April 30, 2016 - Former Hope Mills, N.C. resident Willie Milliken has logged thousands of laps at Fayetteville Motor Speedway. But the 50 laps he led during Saturday night's World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series Tarheel 100 met something more to him.
"We have a good piece," said Milliken about his No. 1M MJ Price Construction Co./ Longhorn Chassis car. "We don't get to showcase it all the time. [The win] was just getting on the gas, the car would take it and it would go."
This win was Milliken's seventh late model start ever - his first with the Outlaws. He takes home not only the $10,000 purse, but also the pleasure of finishing first in each of his events. Milliken was the Fast Timer of the night (16.740), won his heat race, pulled the No. 1 on the redraw and led every lap of the A-Main.
Richards Battles Track and Field in Carolina Speedway Win
Claims win No. 63 in series’ first appearance at Carolina Speedway
GASTONIA, N.C. - April 29, 2016 - Josh Richards battled from an eighth place starting position and through tough track conditions and cautions on Friday night at Carolina Speedway as he claimed the inaugural World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series win at the track.
"We were able to survive," said Richards, who took home the $10,000 purse. "We had a great car there. It was starting to get rough off Turn 4, but I want to thank all the fans for coming out. It's great to come out with a win."
Challenging track conditions proved to be a test for the 24 drivers that started the A-Main - in the 50-lap feature, there were 12 cautions with eight drivers finishing on the lead lap. A caution on Lap 24 allowed drivers to replenish their tear-off visor sheets, making track visibility less of a struggle through the remainder of the race.
