'PA Posse' Looks to Round up Outlaws at Bad Boy Off Road World of Outlaws World Finals
The sprint car spotlight is less than two weeks from shining on The Dirt Track at Charlotte. The stars of the renowned PA Posse - including Logan Shuchart, Greg Hodnett, Jacob Allen, Lucas Wolfe and Danny "Double-D" Dietrich - take on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series' best in the Oct. 27-29 Bad Boy Off Road World of Outlaws World Finals.
The unmatched excitement features three days of full-throttle, dirt-flying daredevilry among Outlaw champion Donny Schatz, perennial contenders Shane Stewart, Joey Saldana and Daryn Pittman and the biggest names in winged sprint cars tackling Charlotte's lightning-fast, four-tenths mile clay oval.
The Outlaws will particularly have their hands full with Schuchart, a 23-year-old native of Hanover, Pennsylvania, who finished sixth in last year's World Finals and rocketed to his first Outlaw victory in July. If a non-Posse driver is to take home The Dirt Track at Charlotte's biggest prize, he'll have to do it with Hodnett, Schuchart and the rest of the Posse right on his tail after 30 laps of wheel-to-wheel action unlike anything the Outlaws see all year.
"It would be huge (for a PA Posse driver to win)," said Jeremy Elliott, the motorsports beat writer for PennLive and The Patriot-News in Pennsylvania. "Any kind of win on that stage against the best drivers in the nation - in NASCAR country - is a big win. It also closes out the season so you can take a lot of momentum into next year if you win."
