Josh Richards Earns First Victory in LaCrosse Footwear Extreme Tough Challenge





CONCORD, N.C. - June 24, 2010 - Lernerville Speedway is one of World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion Josh Richards' favorite racetracks. On Thursday night Richards held off Shane Clanton to win during the Firecracker Weekend event at Lernerville and to earn his first points in the LaCrosse Footwear Extreme Tough Challenge.


Clanton was aiming for his second consecutive five-point night in the Extreme Tough Challenge, but his runner-up finish was enough to vault him into the overall lead, two points ahead of World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series star Joey Saldana.


"It's pretty cool," Richards said of the LaCrosse Extreme Tough Challenge points battle. "Racers want to win when they're competing against anybody, and we'd definitely like to win this LaCrosse deal competing against the Sprint Car guys. It would give us bragging rights, I guess, if we could pull it off."


Tim McCreadie and Darrell Lanigan also earned points for second consecutive time in the LaCrosse Extreme Tough Challenge, while Clint Smith picked up his first points in the mini-series.


Kasey Kahne Racing's Saldana is the leading World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series driver in the Extreme Tough Challenge. Through four events (two Sprint Car races, two Late Model races), 14 different drivers have earned points.


The Extreme Tough Challenge features 16 overall events - eight per series - where drivers who are competing full-time in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series or the World of Outlaws Late Model Series earn points toward the championship, which will be decided at the World of Outlaws World Finals in November at The Dirt Track at Charlotte. The top five finishers no matter the series will share a $15,000 point fund, and the winning driver will receive the Extreme Tough Challenge champion trophy.


Also, at each Extreme Tough Challenge event, LaCrosse will distribute keepsake posters as well as provide hat and t-shirt giveaways. Fans can get involved at every race through a unique Extreme Tough competition with the chance to win a pair of LaCrosse boots.


LaCrosse Footwear develops performance footwear and apparel designed to help users dominate their ground in work and recreation. LaCrosse boots, including the Extreme Tough™ line, can be found at premium retailers such as Bass Pro Shops and Gander Mountain.
