The Lowes Foods World of Outlaws World Finals Presented by Bimbo Bakeries and Tom’s Snacks will be the big topic of discussion tonight (Nov. 2) at 8 p.m. ET on the ‘Race Time Radio’ show on Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 98.
Race Time Radio host Joe Chisholm will provide Sirius Channel 98 ‘The Score’ listeners an in-depth preview of the blockbuster fourth annual Lowes Foods World Finals scheduled for Nov. 4-6 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C., filling much of the show’s hour with interviews of star drivers from the Super DIRTcar Series for Big-Block Modifieds, World of Outlaws Sprint Car and Late Model series. The three headline divisions will be part of the season-ending spectacular at the four-tenths-mile oval.
The points leaders of the three tours – Matt Sheppard (Super DIRTcar Series), Jason Meyers (WoO Sprint Car Series) and Josh Richards (WoO Late Model Series) – will be featured on the show, which originates from a studio in the Canadian city of Toronto.
Sheppard will head the conversation with Chisholm on the addition of the Super DIRTcar Series for Big-Block Modifieds to this year’s Lowes Foods World Finals agenda. The 28-year-old driver holds a 74-point lead in the tour’s standings as his chases his first career overall Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Modified championship.
Meyers will chat with Chisholm about closing in on his first-ever WoO Sprint Car Series title – a goal he fell short of realizing at last year’s Lowes Food World Finals. He carries a 96-point lead over Donny Schatz into this year’s edition of the tour’s season-ending events.
Richards, meanwhile, will talk about his dramatic battle for the WoO LMS crown. He leads Darrell Lanigan by just 22 points entering the Lowes Foods World Finals as the 22-year-old defending tour champion bids to become the first driver to win the series title twice since it was re-launched in 2004 under the World Racing Group banner.
Chisholm also will broadcast interviews with former WoO LMS champions Lanigan and Tim McCreadie, who are second and third, respectively, in the tour’s points standings; Canadian Big-Block Modified star Stewart Friesen, who enters the Lowes Foods World Finals just four weeks after winning the prestigious SEF Small Engine Fuels 200 at the famed Syracuse (N.Y.) Mile; and World Racing Group Executive Vice President of Events Roger Slack, who will discuss the company’s preparations for the huge season finale at The Dirt Track.
Chisholm plans to invite the drivers who win the WoO Sprint Car, WoO LMS and Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified championships back on Race Time Radio for live interviews on the Tues., Nov. 9, show. Phone lines will be opened up that evening for fans across North America to call in with questions for the champs.
