Officials with the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series have announced Steve Francis as its new director of competition.
Francis, the 2007 World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series champion, will work directly with Series Director Casey Shuman.
“Steve joining our team of officials will make us all [the] better as he’s proven to be a valuable and important voice in the sport since he retired as a driver,” said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. “As we’ve continued to grow across all of our platforms, adding experienced, respected, and talented people like Steve from within the sport will help continue our trajectory.”
The National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer from Bowling Green, Kentucky, is 10th all-time on the World of Outlaws wins list with 28 victories. He holds nearly 300 wins in his career, including the World 100 and the Dirt Track World Championship. He was a key part of the rebirth of the Outlaws in 2004, winning the first night at Volusia Speedway Park in De Leon Springs, Florida.
Most recently, Francis has served as the technical director of the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. His wife, Amanda, will also join World of Outlaws to enhance fan engagement.
