Special from Owosso Speedway - The Finley Family, Auto Value, Reveal the Hammer Outlaw Late Model Series, Lane Automotive, and Owosso Speedway all have the following news to release about the Bob Finley Memorial.
Jeff Finley had the following remarks "It has been a whirlwind of emotions for our family since the rained out event at Corrigan Oil Speedway. The process of trying to figure out a suitable date for our dad's inaugural race this year has been a challenge since we unfortunately did not have a rain date set up and August being a crowded month for Outlaw Late Model Racing. We are super excited to announce we will be moving The Bob Finley Memorial event to Owosso speedway. Owosso Speedway has a very special place in our hearts as well from years past dating back to the late 60s. We went and visited the track recently and we were astounded by the improvements that have been made. Rex Wheeler and Jeff Parish have welcomed us with open arms and we are grateful for that. The payout for this race is unprecedented through these gentlemen as well. This race will be as huge as the legacy our dad left behind and we couldn't be more proud."
Rex Wheeler stated "We are extremely happy to be able to offer a venue to the Finley's after they had exhausted options at Corrigan Oil Speedway. Owosso Speedway will honor the Awards that Corrigan had readied, and will honor their lap money pledged by fans devoted to memorializing Bob. We are able to partner with the Finley's and bring the event to honor Bob to our championship race night at the Owosso Nationals for 2023. With an already very attractive purse, and sponsorship and pledges from the above business's we are able to raise the win and all down through the field to make this the highest paying Outlaw race to ever occur at Owosso. It is now $20,067 to win and enhancements through the rest of the field to make this a very special event, additions to the modified purse will happen as well." Moving forward, the Bob Finley Memorial will have its own special format and night in the upcoming years ahead. The Finleys have been Outlaw racers at Owosso for decades with Chad and Corey both racing at Owosso in recent years. We are happy to be part of the celebration of Mr Finleys contributions to racing.
