Countdown To The USA Nationals At Cedar Lake Speedway: Chub Frank
Click on the video above to hear World of Outlaws Late Model Series veteran Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., talk about the 24th annual USA Nationals presented by U.S. Steel, a $50,000-to-win spectacular that takes center stage this weekend (Aug. 4-6) at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis.
The 49-year-old Frank has only started the USA Nationals twice – the events sanctioned by the WoO LMS in 2005 and 2010. He finished 15th in the 60-lap A-Main in ’05 and third in last year’s 100-lapper.
Frank’s run to the show position in the ’10 USA Nationals was an improbable story. He nearly had to sit out the A-Main after mechanical trouble prevented him from running the Last Chance Race, but a provisional gave him the 25th starting spot and he quietly stayed out of trouble to score a third-place finish worth $10,000.
