Chub Frank Tries Something New & Something Old During World of Outlaws Late Model Series Doubleheader In Midwest


BEAR LAKE, PA – May 4, 2011 – Chub Frank ran something new and something old during last weekend’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series doubleheader in the Midwest.

And the 49-year-old veteran from Bear Lake, Pa., liked the “old” vehicle best.

After driving his newest Corry Rubber/Hino Toyota Rocket to a disappointing 17th-place finish (two laps down) in the inaugural WoO LMS ‘Cabin Fever 50’ on Friday night (April 29) at Hartford (Mich.) Motor Speedway, Frank pulled out his older Rocket mount the next evening and promptly guided it to a solid eighth-place finish in the 50-lap ‘My Old Kentucky Home Shootout’ at Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown, Ky.

Frank was very satisfied with his performance at Bluegrass, a high-banked, half-mile oval that hosted the WoO LMS for the second time in as many seasons. He survived near-disaster on the opening circuit to pick up six positions from his 14th starting spot before falling into line when the track surface locked down.

“The car was good,” Frank said of his older machine, which sported a crumpled left-rear corner for virtually the entire distance. “On the first lap somebody about spun me out going down the frontstretch, but I gassed ‘er up when I got sideways into (turn) one and passed a couple cars. We got a few more on the outside early in the race and I felt like we had something, but then (the surface) rubbered up. Once it got to that condition you weren’t passing.”

After never contending at Hartford with his new car (he qualified through a B-Main and started 21st), Frank gave his vintage vehicle a great rating.

“This here old car seems like it’s aged just right,” said Frank. “I just feel more comfortable in it right now.”

With one top-five and three top-10 finishes to his credit through seven events on the 2011 WoO LMS, Frank ranks eighth in the points standings, 100 points behind leader Josh Richards.

Frank will chase the WoO LMS to the Southeast this weekend for a Georgia doubleheader at Swainsboro Raceway on Saturday night (May 7) and Needmore Speedway in Norman Park on Sunday evening (May 8).
