Chub Frank Will Talk Dirt-Track Racing At Seneca Nation Library In Salamanca, N.Y., On Sat., March 10

Concord, NC. --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 1, 2007

What is Chub Frank doing during the one-month break in the 360 OTC World of Outlaws Late Model Series schedule?

The superstar driver known as ‘Chubzilla’ isn’t merely gearing up for the ‘World of Outlaws March Through Dixie’ that will visit Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama the weekend of March 23-25. He’s also spending some time spreading the word about dirt-track racing to the local community.

Frank, 45, of Bear Lake, Pa., will appear at the Seneca Nation Library in Salamanca, N.Y., on Sat., March 10, to talk about the grassroots sport in which he makes his living.

In an appearance sponsored by the Seneca Nation Library and ‘Friends of the Library,’ Frank will conduct an afternoon presentation titled “Everything You’ve Ever Wanted To Know About Dirt-Track Racing But Never Had The Chance To Ask.” He will provide audience members insight into the sport during two one-hour, question-and-answer periods inside the library.

“The only time I’ve done a question-and-answer-type deal is at the Rocket (Chassis) School, so this is something new for me,” said Frank, one of the country’s most decorated and popular dirt Late Model drivers. “But we’ll have some fun with it and maybe get some people interested in dirt racing.”

Frank, whose race shop near the New York State border is approximately a half-hour drive from the Seneca Nation Library, will answer questions on March 10 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and again from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. In between, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., he’ll take part in an autograph and photo session, with fans encouraged to bring die-cast cars, t-shirts and other racing memorabilia for Frank to sign.

Weather permitting; Frank will also have one of his Lester Buildings,Corry Rubber, Lake Shore Paving, Corry Laser, Chevrolet Impala SS cars on display.

The Seneca Nation Library is located off Exit 20 of Interstate 86, next to the Seneca Nation Museum. It is within an hour’s drive of two tracks that will host 360 OTC WoO LMS events this season: Stateline Speedway in Busti, N.Y. (Wed., June 27) and Eriez Speedway in Hammett, Pa. (Sun., July 22).

Following his public appearance, Frank will return to his garage and continue preparations for the resumption of the 360 OTC WoO LMS. The tour’s ‘March Through Dixie’ will visit Baton Rouge Raceway in Baker, La., on Fri., March 23; Columbus (Miss.) Speedway on Sat., March 24; and North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, Ala., on Sun., March 25.

Frank plans to enter the weekend events in the Deep South behind the wheel of the same Rocket car that was sidelined for the tour’s season opener on Feb. 18 at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., by a heat-race crash. Following the wreck, his crew pulled out a brand-new car and Frank ran it in the 50-lap Florida DIRTcar Nationals feature, finishing a respectable ninth despite using a provisional to start 25th.

“We’re re-skinning the car we wrecked,” said Frank, noting that the damage the machine sustained at Volusia was relatively light. “It’ll have the same paint scheme (and Impala SS body) as our new car.”

A solid ninth in the point standings heading into the Southern swing, Frank is as confident as he’s ever been about his chances of winning the 360 OTC WoO LMS championship in 2007.

In fact, not only is Frank loaded for bear with his equipment, he’s also made himself more physically fit for competition. A diet and exercise regime during the off-season helped him lose more than 30 pounds, forcing him to update his measurements before purchasing a new racing uniform and prompting jokesters to call him ‘Slimzilla.’

“I gotta get in shape to keep up with these young guys,” smiled Frank.
