WELL THE 2016-2017 SEASON Schedule is Finalized! Denny LeFevre did another one of his excellent writeups about what will be happening this season at OMS, and I hope all of you appreciate his dedication, and writing talent on all of his Race writeups! I know here at OMS we sure do ! Also a BIG Thanks goes out to all of our sponsors, as without them we would have never been able to put these shows on here at OMS ! Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Famous Bullring as we start our 7th Year !

CH…CH…CHANGES!

WINCHESTER, VA (September 2016) – It is said that change is the only constant in the universe.  At Outback Motor Speedway that very sentiment has prevailed since day one.  The changes at OMS have come through a combination of hard-working minds, active imaginations, necessity, and experience, all of which have continually made racing at the Northern Virginia Bullring better week after week, season after season.  So, how many more things could we change?  Over the years there has been at least two changes to the point system.  We’ve added twin 200s, Crown Jewel events and, most recently, topless events for the Super Late Models.  During last year’s off-season, OMS went through a complete rebuild.  A minimum weight limit went into effect for the SLMs as did tire and motor rules.  The SLM body design has certainly seen some changes over the years and the Modifieds are about to see body changes as well.  Yes, what could we possibly do to change or improve the racing program at OMS?

 

Owner/Promoter Tim Hottle and son, Brent, have been hard at work this summer cleaning out the garage that is the speedway’s home.  Some items have been removed and some others shifted to different positions to make more room for the speedway staff and hopefully provide additional space in a pit area that has been downright crowded.  The parts counter is still there, but now there is a second counter for the tech man, ample room for him to inspect and impound cars.  There will be additional monitors so that speedway, race and sponsor information can be presented to the drivers, crews and fans more easily.  On the garage wall down the back stretch, the oversized checks that had hung there have been removed, replaced by pictures of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series drivers, who raced on the speedway during our visits to Virginia Motor Speedway.  The 2016-2017 schedule has been drafted, expanded and tweaked as has the point system in an effort to promote a more competitive season.  There are some new sponsors joining those who have been with us since the first and second seasons along with others who have decided to continue their involvement.  Try as we might, we can never thank them enough for their dedication and support.  And try as we might, we will never be able to thank everyone who comes through the door to race, crew or spectate.  Weekly attendance has grown season-by-season, putting up amazing numbers, especially this past season.  In the beginning, no one could have imagined the sport would be what it is today or that it could continue to grow the way it has.

 

Changes.  What else is in store for the 2016-2017 season?  The Twin 200s have been removed from the schedule.  Instead, since we always run a non-qualifier for the Super Late Models, the first NQ will have its own set of points (see points), and this will apply to all first non-qualifiers throughout the season.  There will be no throwaway night this season.  Instead, if a driver misses a night of competition, that driver will receive 15 hardship points, which is good for only one absence.  This applies for all 3 divisions.  Show points have been increased from 14 to 20 points.  Heat races will grant the first, second and third place finishers six, four and two points respectively.  B-Mains will award the winner 2 points instead of 1 while the runner up will receive 1 point.  This will apply to all three divisions, too.  Fast timers and C, D, Last Chance Qualifier, and 2nd NQ winners will receive 1 point for a victory.  Other changes?  On Black Friday, which is usually an off-night, the Modifieds and Street Stocks will compete in point races.  Overall we’ve added two shows each for the Modified and Street stock divisions, making a total of 7 point races, instead of 5 like it was last season.

 

Drivers and crews are highly encouraged to check out the rules because other changes have been made!  The rules will be posted on the website, in the “blue” book at the track and printed on flyers, also available at the track.

 

As for the schedule itself, there will be plenty of racing action this coming fall and winter!  We open with our first official open practice night on Tuesday, 10/18.

 

The first point race and the first of eight Crown Jewel events for the Super Late Models takes place on Sunday, 10/23, with the Hillbilly 400, this season sponsored by USA Produce & Seafood.  This time around we’re not going to attempt to move the track outside.  Instead, and as long as Mother Nature cooperates, we’re going to open the garage door, thinking the cooler air may create changes in the track surface.  This will also allow the pit area to expand a little as well.

 

Friday 10/28 will be an off-night, but we will return on Friday, 11/4, for the Battle at the Bullring, sponsored by Fire Protection Co.  The Street Stocks will make their first appearance of the season that night.

 

Our annual Freedom 200 will be on Friday 11/11, an event dedicated to the men & women who serve and have served our country.  It is appropriately enough on Veterans Day and sponsored by Zirkle Brothers Letterwerx.  The Modifieds will make their first appearance of the season.

 

Friday, 11/18, marks the second Crown Jewel event, the Slot Car Nationals, sponsored by perennial sponsor Champion Auto Sales of Winchester.

 

Black Friday, 11/25, normally a night off for all divisions, is the Small Car Shootout for the Modifieds and Street Stocks.  There will be non-qualifier races for both divisions and the A-1NQ point format will be used that night.

 

The Super Late Models will be back in action on Friday, 12/2, for the third Crown Jewel event, the DirtonDirt400, sponsored by DirtonDirt.com, All Late Models, All the Time.

 

On Friday, 12/9, the Street Stocks will once again join the SLMs for the North/South Showdown, sponsored this season by first-time sponsor Outlaw Racing Southeast.

 

Mark your calendars for the biggest racing event of the season, that being the first two-day event of the campaign, on 12/16 & 17, the Dream 480.  The Modifieds and the Street Stocks will also be on hand as the SLMs battle for the big money.  This event will be sponsored by Ernie D’s Enterprises/Hagerstown Speedway for the second consecutive season.

 

Friday, 12/23, will be another off-night as we celebrate Christmas and take a break before tackling eleven straight race dates.

 

On Friday, 12/30, the Commonwealth 200, sponsored by Anderson Race Cars, will find the SLMs and Street Stocks going at it.  It will also be the first topless race of the season for the SLMs.

On Friday, 1/6, we once again honor a local race legend, Rodney Franklin, with the running of the 2nd Annual Rodney Franklin Memorial, sponsored once again by the Franklin Family & Crews.  It will be an all SLM show!

 

The fifth Crown Jewel event of the season kicks off on Friday, 1/13, with the Silver Dollar Nationals sponsored by Powell’s Plumbing, another all SLM show.  Superstitious?  One lucky person will come away with the big prize!

 

The Modifieds roll back onto the speedway on Friday, 1/20, joining the SLMs for the Coal: America’s Energy Black Diamond Nationals, sponsored once again by Bear Cove Village of Pigeon Forge, TN.

 

Then we have our second two-day event on 1/27 & 28, the sixth Crown Jewel event on the schedule, the World 100 & More, sponsored by Robbie’s Auto Body.  In an attempt to give the MODs and Street Stocks more racing dates, both divisions will be spread out over this two-day show.

 

We follow that prestigious event up on Friday, 2/3, with the Raymond & Frank Memorial in which we honor lost loved ones.  Sponsored by Rhino Linings/Valley Accessories, the Street Stocks will also be on hand for their seventh and final point race of the season.

 

Then on Friday, 2/10, it’s time for the Virginia Shootout, sponsored by first-time sponsor Jones Auto Parts Inc./Lawn & Garden Equipment.  The Modifieds will also run a complete show.

 

The Appalachian Mountain Dirt Late Model Speedweek Series joins us once again on Friday, 2/17, for the seventh Crown Jewel event, the Winternationals, another SLM exclusive show.

 

Is it time to take a break yet?  No way.  It’s time for the Outback 200, another topless SLM event and the final point race for the Modifieds.  Anthony’s Pizza is once again back in the sponsor’s seat for this show.

 

What can we say about the next sponsor?  If you haven’t heard of them, you haven’t been paying much attention to dirt track racing.  For the sixth consecutive season we are honored to have the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series close out the 2016-2017 campaign.  It’s the Slot Car World Championship and hopefully, with the revamped point system, this final race will determine who the next SLM track champion is going to be.  On Friday, 3/3, nothing but Super Late Models and the end of a long haul that began just after Christmas!

 

On Friday, 3/10, we will have our annual, season-ending banquet and awards ceremony to honor our track champions and recognize other drivers for their accomplishments.  Food, trophies, payouts, and, of course, Owner/Promoter Tim Hottle will undoubtedly entertain us with one of his classic videos.

 

Will we be crowning a new track champion this season?  Will defending track champion Trever Feathers make it three championships in a row?  Don’t think two-time track champion Alan Sagi or former track champ Brent Hottle won’t have a say in it!  How about Austin Nichols?  Will his success at the end of last season carry over into the new one?  How about Junior Cooper?  Could this finally be his season?  Check out the website, come watch a race, follow the action any way you can!  The battle begins in just a few short weeks!  Previous winners of the Hillbilly 400 are:

2010-2011  Trever Feathers

2011-2012  Jimmy McFarland

2012-2013  Trever Feathers

2013-2014  Junior Cooper

2014-2015  Trever Feathers

2015-2016  Trever Feathers

2016-2017  ???
