November 7, 2018 - David Breazeale Crowned 2018 WoO Rookie of the Year
1It was a trying and arduous 2018 season for David Breazeale as a rookie on the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series trail in his Franklin Fence & Erosion Control #54 XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model.

However, at the series banquet on Sunday evening the hard work, sleepless nights, and long drives were all rewarded as David was crowned the 2018 WoO Rookie of the Year.

“We would like to thank everyone who made it possible for us to compete the entire year on the World of Outlaws tour. Billy Franklin gave us everything we needed to compete and win the Rookie of the Year, and we truly are blessed to have him,” Breazeale said. “Austin Arnold, Scott Johnson, Ryan Arnold, Mason Allen, Todd Pruitt and Brett White all crewed the No.54 this year. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. Austin Arnold dedicated his life to this race team for the year, we are truly grateful for him.

“I want to thank all of the drivers and crews from the other teams, who pitched in to help this year when we needed it the most. This is a tough deal, driving up and down the road with a lot of sleepless nights. I appreciate how the World of Outlaws family treated us so well. It’s been a trying year, but it’s been a fun year. Last, but definitely not least, I want to say a heartfelt thanks to all our sponsors for their continued support.”

David ended the year ninth in the overall series points. In 40 WoO events he recorded two Top-five finishes and 13 Top-10 finishes. He ran select unsanctioned events, and added a Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) victory on August 24 at Mississippi’s Hattiesburg Speedway.

1On Thursday evening both David Breazeale and Brandon Overton made the trek to the Dirt Track at Charlotte (Concord, North Carolina) for the 12th annual World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series World Finals. With 76 cars on hand for a round of qualifying, Overton came in 19th fastest in his group while Breazeale logged the 38th fastest time in his group.

Using a provisional into the feature that was postponed by curfew until Saturday, David Breazeale gained six spots in the 50-lapper to place 22nd.

Later Saturday evening, David followed up a 7th place finish in his heat with a 9th place outing in his consolation event. Relying on a provisional into the show, Breazeale advanced through the field 13 spots reeling in a 13th place outing. Overton locked his spot into the $12,000-to-win finale with a 3rd place finish in his heat. Starting in 18th, Brandon Overton fell four spots in the 50-lap affair recording a 22nd place outing.
