Welcome to the Outlaw Modifieds website. We thank you for your interest in our series and suggest you bookmark us. The Outlaws are the oldest continuously running traveling series in the state of Florida. Originally conceived in the early 1970's as the first Modified Mini stocks at Hialeah Speedway it progressed to a modified body style and were called the Pro-4s of Florida.
A change in management from Craig Sherar to Paul Petri of Ocala Racetrack fame saw the roofs come off and the name changed to the Outlaw Modifieds. Richard Huston picked up the reins in 1996 and car count began to climb. In 2000 Steve Brigham took over the series and incorporated it as the Outlaw Modified Racing Series. Car count continued to climb and the Outlaws are now a major touring series with 20 races scheduled at 4 different tracks for 2006.
The OLM's mission statement is simple "provide a family environment for the fastest four cylinders in Florida, and do it inexpensively." To this end races are scheduled on the first and third Saturday of the month. If a race is missed due to a rain out it is not rescheduled as that would not be fair to a team that may not be able to make it up. This keeps every team on an equal footing for points.
Consideration for Family Life is very important as most of the teams are made up of close knit Family units such as Team of Harry Campbell which fields 3 cars and has more clansmen at the track than at the last Highlands Clan reunion.
The cars themselves are also unique as they are built on tube chassis with coil over shocks. Rolling on 10 wide tires and a 76" track, these cars are fast and nimble. Power plants run from Fords to Toyotas and even an odd Nissan, however the Ford 2300's is the favored motor. Motor rules have stayed very stable over the last 10 years with the only rule change coming this year which allowed the Esslinger aluminum d-port head.
This was done only to provide an alternative to hard to find iron heads. This head can only be run on a low compression motor, another way the Outlaws promote reliability as low compression motors enjoy a major weight break.
Speeds of an Outlaw rival those of a limited late model on a quarter to 3/8 mile track.
