  • WOW ... a whopping 19 teams ... wonder how long that will last especially if 4 of them aren't getting the tow money? Might depend on which 4 aren't getting it as well. Unless the WoO's decide to break it up to give all their teams tow money instead of just 15 like I believe they have in the past.

    Tim Shaffer: Full-Time Outlaw for 2018

    CONCORD, NC – March 4, 2018 – The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series is thrilled to announce that The Steel City Outlaw Tim Shaffer and car owner Jeff Rudzik have signed on as full-time Outlaws for the 2018 40th Anniversary Season in the familiar No.49X machine.

    Shaffer has been a staple with The Greatest Show on Dirt since scoring his first career victory 20 years ago in Elma, WA at Grays Harbor Raceway in 1998. A year later, Tim Shaffer was crowned the 1999 Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year with the World of Outlaws before spending the better part of the next decade as a Series regular.

    “We feel extremely competitive and I don’t how many years left I have doing this. Most importantly, I am enjoying myself out here,” Shaffer, who scored two Outlaw wins in 2017, cited as his main reason for joining the Outlaws full-time. “I work really with Cody Jacobs as my crew chief and we have had a lot of speed, while also enjoying ourselves,” Shaffer added with a smile.

    Shaffer will land in the Sprint Car Hall of Fame when he chooses to retire on the strength of his 25 Outlaw wins, 60 All-Star Circuit of Champion triumphs, hundreds of regional victories and, of course, his unforgettable 2010 Knoxville Nationals Championship.

    “I was on the road for about 10 years and I bet it has been about 10 years since I was last out here. I absolutely love it,” the Aliquippa, PA native said.

    During those 10 years when Shaffer was not a full-time Outlaw, he re-established himself as a dominant force in Pennsylvania and Ohio amidst capturing four consecutive All-Star Championships.

    Shaffer’s addition brings the current total of full-time Outlaws to a whopping 19 as they head West for California. Tim Shaffer left us with this parting thought, “This is really exciting. I feel at home again.”

    Catch Shaffer and the rest of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series next at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA March 9 and 10. As always, if you can’t make it to the track, you can watch all the action live on DIRTVision.com.

    • Since they refuse to actually say it, Saldana is signed up as a platinum driver and on Rudeen Racing's webstie they have themselves running the Outlaws through the end of April. Sounds like they are tentatively running the full schedule if they are performing well, or will drop off and pick and choose if they aren't where they'd like to be.

          I have no problem with it ... the more the merrier ... it is up to the drivers to make it happen. Also this might be a time where better drivers work as well. Might not be a ideal situation on a smaller track with all local competition?

          Also it could actually make the racing a lot better with more traffic on the track as well. Some of the best racing is when you have leaders caught in traffic and fighting for positions and trying to figure out where to go, where are the slower cars going, and picking the right spot to make a move.

            • Reutzel put on a clinic those last few laps. He’s gonna be fun to watch this year.

              on the provisionals though, Shane Golobic ran his ass off and finished I believe one or two spots out of a transfer, night done. Meanwhile, you’ve got two cars who have struggled to make it out of C main starting in the main event. Not fair to the 100s of locals throughout the year who compete in their events and are a large part of the show.

              • WoO's finally did the right thing (IMO) by making the first day of a two day show "back in the day" which were called prelim shows are now being counted correctly.

                All-Time Wins

                World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series All-Time Feature Winners

                as of January 1, 2018

                For the majority of its lifespan, the World of Outlaws credited only the winner of the finale of any multiple-day show with an official win. Over the course of forty years, hundreds of races weren’t officially counted as full point shows, and the drivers who won those races weren’t credited with official World of Outlaws wins. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, the time has come to revise the victory totals. After much discussion and debate, the Series has retroactively credited all previous FULL-FIELD preliminary wins as official wins. Below is the revised list, calling out the change from previous counts.
                Rank Name Wins Change
                1 Steve Kinser 690 + 113

                • Amazing the amount of drivers who's only win was a prelim night win. Has got to make them feel better knowing they're officially recognized as having won an Outlaw event.

                      When you look at this list, I am completely blown away. Schatz has been winning a bunch and hasn't even approached half as many wins as the King. Looking at all of the great drivers, one certainly is head and shoulders above the rest. This record will never be broken.
