March 20, 2018 - Double Duty Racing Heads East
Mulino, Oregon (03/20/18) – Things are changing quickly for Oregon’s Justin Duty. The towering 6’5” racer recently turned 21 years old, and then, just last week he relocated to a new shop that’s a little closer to the center of Dirt Late Model. As a matter of a fact, it’s a lot closer to the action then he’s used to being.

Duty relocated 2,700 miles to Troutman, North Carolina, where he’ll be operating out of fellow Dirt Late Model pilot, Joey Coulter’s shop.

“It’s both exciting and a little scary all rolled into one big ball,” laughed Duty in regards to his big move. “Living in Oregon you just don’t have many options for big-league Dirt Late Model competition throughout the year. However, where I’m at now I’ve got big-time races within four-to-five hours of the shop pretty much every week. It’s a dream come true. I can’t thank my family enough for supporting my dreams, and I really appreciate the Coulter family letting me use their shop.”

Duty last raced back in January during Arizona Speedway’s Wild West Shootout. Since then the team has been busily preparing the hauler, cars, and equipment for the relocation.

“My mom and dad – what can I say about them. They give me anything and everything I need to be a racer, and now the ball is in my court to progress in the driver’s seat. We’ve got some tough events on our radar, but I know that we can learn quickly and rise to the challenge,” Duty stated.

The pilot of the Don Frank Floors #15 XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Pro Power Racing Engine Super Late Model will make his eastern debut this weekend – March 22-24 – with a trio of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) events. Action opens on Thursday night at Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tennessee) before shifting to Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Georgia) on Friday evening. The weekend draws to a close on Saturday night at East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Alabama).

The remainder of the 2018 campaign will offer Justin a bevy of Super Late Model events. He has appearances scheduled with the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series, LOLMDS, Ultimate Late Model Series and likely some Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals events. He will also enter crown jewel events like the Show Me 100, Prairie Dirt Classic, USA Nationals, and Silver Dollar Nationals.

Justin’s dad, John will also race in select events as well.

“It’s going to be different being so far away from my family, but I know they will be popping in from time to time,” Justin commented. “I’m really excited, and I’m definitely ready to hit the ground running.”

Double Duty Racing would like to thank their principal and associate sponsors including Don Frank Floors, Ohlins by JDR, Metro Services, Darren & Mardell Williams, Pro Power Racing Engines, Mid-Ohio Graphics, and MSR Mafia Marketing Services.
