Derek West 2018 Outlaw Off Road Racing Champion!

Saturday Oct. 13, 2018…The final Outlaw Off Road Racing Series event held in Tuscumbia, Alabama at Hawk Pride Off Road Park. A total of 30 competitors came out to finish out the Outlaw season. There was beautiful weather & a good spectator turn out. This event the Outlaw crew kept with the same layout where 2 competitors run at the same time on 2 different hill climbs while drag racing each other. (Lots of fun to watch!) Then the they flip lanes and run again. The drivers times are combined with the top 10 fastest times moving on to the bounty hill, which the drivers voted on doing at their drivers meeting. It was a very difficult hill to say the least. Derek had fast times on both his runs putting him in first place going into the bounty hill. The drivers drew names for running order, and dang the luck Derek drew the first run. He got a good try at it with making a landing up at the top, but just didn’t quite make. Derek still took 3rd for the final Outlaw race of the season and with the highest overall series points he is the back to back Outlaw Racing put Series Champion !!
