IOFS GETS DIRTY IN 2009
Indianapolis, IN - November 19, 2008 - International Outlaw Figure 8 Series
(IOFS) officials announced today that the series plans to visit Montpelier
Motor Speedway in 2009.
The newly formed Outlaw Figure 8 series will be competing at the scenic
Central Indiana 1/4 mile, slightly banked dirt oval three times in 2009.
With this announcement the IOFS will now be competing on dirt as well as
asphalt in 2009. If a driver is to become the inaugural IOFS champion they
must prove to be extremely versatile.
"Montpelier Motor Speedway promoter, Tim Tygart, was looking for something
radically different and I think we will fit his needs" IOFS series director
Charlie Hargraves explains. "Although there isn't a Figure 8 course at the
track yet one will be constructed in time for our 2009 visits. The way the
track is to be constructed it should make for an incredible track. The track
is going to be very wide with multiple grooves and I think very forgiving to
some of our dirt beginners" stated Hargraves.
Although dirt will be a new experience to many of the IOFS regulars these
type of cars have competed on dirt Figure 8 tracks before. Between 1992 -
1994 the now defunct General Tire Figure 8 Challenge Series competed at a
hand full of dirt venues in KY, IN, and TN. The cars adapted very well and
made for great racing. But it hasn't been attempted since the last General
Tire dirt race at Putnamville, IN on July 6, 1994 in an event won by Rick
Fenwick.
Once the race dates for the three Montpelier events are confirmed they will
be posted on www.figure8news and on the soon to be launched official IOFS
website.
IOFS managing partner David Sink expressed his excitement with the
announcement today." I really think this is what Outlaw Figure 8 racing
needs to boost interest and attract new fans. I can't wait to see our guys
on the dirt". Sink also updated the progress of the 2009 IOFS schedule to
date."There is going to be another huge announcement regarding our schedule
and 2009 events in the next week or so as things are really starting to take
shape and we should be able to release our full 2009 schedule with confirmed
dates very shortly".
