Wheatland, Missouri (February 15, 2017) - During the 2016 season, Wheatland, Oklahoma's Randy Timms narrowed his racing focus and found a love of Dirt Late Models. Formerly he was a standout Modified racer, competing regularly with the USMTS. Over time he tested the Late Model waters, before going all in on the division this past year.
Wheatland, Missouri (February 9, 2017) - It has been a little bit of a different offseason for Grandview, Missouri's Austin Siebert compared to previous years. During the final night of the 2016 Lucas Oil MLRA season at Lucas Oil Speedway, Siebert knocked front wheels with another competitor and it jerked the steering wheel out of his hands. He didn't think much about it at the time and the contact didn't even cause a yellow.
