New Dirt Late Model Tour Forms

Sunday marked a historic day for Dirt Late Model racing in the state of Wisconsin.  The Dirt Kings Late Model Tour announced its formation in a press release that included nine races already scheduled for 2017.

The new tour effectively replaces the Wisconsin Dirt Late Model Association (WDLMA) after reaching an agreement with the WDLMA Board of Directors to dissolve WDLMA and Lucky 7 Series at the conclusion of 2016. The transition will allow the Dirt Kings Tour to grow and thrive for years to come.

Dirt Kings Late Model Tour will accommodate various rule packages and promote fair competition.  Series promoter Jason Shultz currently is working with track promoters and sponsor partners in building the inaugural season.  The events will be run exclusively on Hoosier Racing Tires and feature cars with body components from Five Star Race Car Bodies.

“The Dirt Kings Late Model Tour is eager to carry on a tradition of action-packed racing established over 10 years ago by Bill Behling and the Wisconsin Dirt Late Model Association (WDLMA),” Shultz said.

The tour begins May 26 at Oshkosh Speedzone and ends tentatively September 28 at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, WI.  Other planned stops include a first ever Late Model race at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, WI; Dodge County Speedway in Beaver Dam, WI; Luxemburg (WI) Speedway; Wilmot (WI) Raceway; as well as additional stops at Oshkosh and 141.
