The WoO LMS made its only previous visit to I-96 Speedway on May 18, 2007. Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., claimed the victory that night, earning the first of his six WoO LMS A-Main victories that season on his way to a career-best runner-up finish in the series championship chase.
Frank and the WoO LMS regulars will face a much different I-96 Speedway this time around after the track underwent a major reconfiguration following the 2013 season. The process replaced the facility’s longtime half-mile layout – which the 2007 WoO LMS event was run on – and a smaller inner track built several years ago with a brand new 3/8-mile oval.
