Say What!

“It’s just the drive, I just love the people and the excitement of it. This is going on my 49th year of racing, and I still desire just as much now as I did then. That’s how crazy I am. I live and breathe this stuff, and I love to do it. Maybe I need to take up fishing or something, but I’ve tried that and get bored, so I don’t do it. I just love to race.” Bill Rose joining the World of Outlaws for his 5th year.

“I never dreamed an opportunity like this would come so early in my career. I can’t thank my family, friends and marketing partners for helping my dreams become a reality. I am looking forward to the Chili Bowl and the 2024 World of Outlaws season opener at Volusia. I am excited to drive for [Sides Motorsports] knowing the vast amount of knowledge and experience that Jason and his team have with the World of Outlaws over the years.” Landon Crawley joining Sides Motorsports and the World of Outlaws

“This is an exciting opportunity and I’m privileged to be a part of it, I can’t thank Brian and Lisa Ridge enough. They give Tyler Swank and the team the equipment necessary to be competitive night in and night out and I’m confident we’ll have the success to prove that. We have some work to do, but we’ll be ready for February.” Cory Eliason joining Ridge Racing and High Limit Sprints
