Series PR

The Great Lakes Outlaw Late Model Series officials announced today that the 2011 racing season has been suspended.

After difficult discussions between series officials and track promoters; it was decided that due to the tough economic times facing not only the race tracks, but the race teams as well, it is in the best interest of all involved to suspend the 2011 season.

“This was a tough decision, but with the rise in fuel prices and unstable economy, we had to do what was best for the racing community.  We do this for a hobby, and with the tracks struggling as it is, we couldn’t put the added pressure of bringing in a traveling series to these fine racetracks,” stated Dave Marshall, Series General Manager.

“We would like to thank all of our sponsors for coming on board this year.  We would also like to thank the drivers and teams and race tracks for all of their support over the past year and half,” said Nick Mesman, Director of Communications. “We still look forward to seeing everyone throughout the 2011 season.”

All driver registration fees will be returned within the next week. Any question should be directed to either Dave Marshall at 616-889-6057 or Nick Mesman at 616-890-6835.
