Roush Yates’ engines set fast times and dominated races in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series over the holiday weekend with help from Josh Richards and Gregg Satterlee.
For the second time this season at a track in his home state, Richards snapped a rare winless-streak and found Victory Lane at West Virginia Motor Speedway in the 50-lap RaceFest A-Main. Richards started from the outside pole and passed pole sitter Tim McCreadie for the lead on lap 14 to capture his eighth win of the season in the World of Outlaw Late Model Series.
“We’ve had some really good runs over the past month or so but we’ve just been lacking a little bit and we had a few races where we had stuff just not go our way,” said Richards. “It definitely went our way tonight.”
Richards’ win concluded an evening sweep of setting the fast time for the night and winning his heat race. He is currently leading the World of Outlaw Late Model Series points championship.
Satterlee also found speed in the World of Outlaws series over the weekend, winning at Selinsgrove Speedway (Selinsgrove, PA) on Saturday night in the “Showdown on Sand Hill”. One month after registering his first World of Outlaw Late Model Series win, Satterlee passed defending circuit champion Darrell Lanigan for the lead on lap 17 and dominated the remainder of the race at the historic half-mile central Pennsylvania oval.
“I would’ve never though we would’ve got one again this year,” said Satterlee. “It always hangs in the back of your mind – that once you get a win you can do it again, but I never would’ve dreamed that we would do it again this soon. This is just awesome.”
