Fans have been flocking to The Dirt Track at Charlotte for five years for the PEAK Motor Oil World of Outlaws World Finals presented by NAPA Auto Parts and this year they’ll get a better fan experience than ever before at the Nov. 1-3 event.
The sixth annual PEAK World Finals brings together dirt racing’s three premier divisions, the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, the World of Outlaws Late Model Series and the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds, for three nights of on-track action that crowns their respective champions.
