Wilson Eyeing Successful DIRTcar Nationals to Open Third Straight Season With World of Outlaws

Feb 08, 2018

Inside Line Promotions – BENTON RIDGE, Ohio (Feb. 8, 2018) – Greg Wilson is embarking upon his third consecutive season on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series tour when it kicks off the 2018 campaign this week in Florida.

The Hercules Tires backed team will race Friday through Sunday at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville during the famed DIRTcar Nationals.

“Volusia Speedway Park is a fast, half-mile oval that requires two things to be successful,” he said. “First, your car has to be setup right and you can’t have any failures. And second, it’s a momentum track so you have to make good decisions because one hiccup will cost you a lot of ground.”

Wilson’s best performance at the track came in 2006 when he placed seventh and 10th, respectively, during a pair of races. After several seasons of mixed results, Wilson has gained on his program at Volusia Speedway Park the last two years.

“Qualifying is key to setting yourself up for success at every World of Outlaws show so we’ll need to time in well this week,” he said. “Our team has worked extremely hard this offseason to prepare for a grueling season on the road. There aren’t many off nights and there isn’t much downtime. Getting off to a strong start with three good nights of racing at Volusia would be a big boost for our team.”

Wilson has been knocking on the door of finishing in the top 10 of the World of Outlaws championship standings each of the last two years. He has increased his number of top fives per season each of the last four years and his top 10s earned each season for three straight years.

“We’re proud to continue to build our team with Hercules Tires, DNC Hydraulics, Ohio Logistics and Gear Alloy Wheels as primary partners,” he said. “Our team continues to get better each year and I feel confident that 2018 will be our best season yet. I’m grateful for all of our marketing partners and fans who support us. We work diligently toward consistent success and our marketing partners, fans and families are an integral part.”
