2018 LMS DCN1 Foggy Finish

BARBERVILLE, FL– Feb. 14, 2018– The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series season opener took place on the ninth day of the 12-day short track extravaganza – the 47th annual DIRTcar Nationals. The 50-lap Craftsman Club Feature played out eerily similar to the Outlaws first night of competition at DIRTcar Nationals just one year ago.

A night of rain followed by a warm sunny afternoon developed into a heavy evening fog, which engulfed Volusia Speedway Park. The condensation from the fog made it dangerous for drivers to see despite the number of tear-offs on their helmets. Taking the drivers safety as top-priority, the feature was completed at 26 laps.

Although the feature was shortened, there was no short in excitement for the fans. The feature had three race leaders but it was Tim McCreadie who made the right move at the right time. Leading only one lap of the feature, McCreadie claimed the $10,000 payday and his first Series win since July 10, 2015 at River Cities Speedway.
