Race fans from 48 states and three foreign countries will converge on The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway Nov. 1-3 for the inaugural World of Outlaws World Finals.

This unique event marks the first time the World of Outlaws Sprint Series and the World of Outlaws Late Model Series have come together to end their respective seasons and crown their champions.

"Interest in the inaugural World Finals has been tremendous and we've even sold tickets to fans in Australia, England and Canada," said H.A.

"Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway.

"Bringing the world's best sprint car drivers and the world's best late model drivers together for one giant event is unprecedented.

"Having superstars such as Steve Kinser, Donny Schatz, Scott Bloomquist and Steve Francis at the same track on the same night has definitely caught the interest of dirt track fans around the world," Wheeler added. "It will be a terrific way to close out the season."

The Thursday night portion of the three-day program includes practice and qualifying for the World of Outlaws sprint cars and late models. Each division will have two time trial sessions with the first round determining lineups for Friday night and the second round setting the Saturday night card.

Full racing programs are on tap for both divisions Friday and Saturday with each night highlighted by $10,000-to-win main events for both the sprint cars and late models.

In the World of Outlaws Sprint Series title fight, defending champion Donny Schatz leads Joey Saldana by 115 points while Steve Francis has a 62-point advantage over Chub Frank in the chase for the late model crown.
