(October 30, 2016) Frank Heckenast, Jr. and Heckenast Racing wrapped up the 2016 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series schedule over the October 27-29 weekend in the annual running of the 'World of Outlaws World Finals' at the pristine Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, North Carolina. Things kicked off at the 4/10-mile speedplant on Thursday evening with two rounds of qualifying, which determined the lineups for heat race action the remainder of the weekend. Frankie posted the eighth fastest lap in Group A for Friday's program, while he clicked off the twentieth quickest lap in Group A in time trials for Saturday's showdown.

When the stakes were raised over the weekend, Frankie grabbed the third transfer spot through his heat race on Friday night, but unfortunately went for a spin late in the $12,000 to win feature event and was subsequently placed twenty-fifth in the final rundown of the 50-lapper. In Saturday's $12,000 to win 'World of Outlaws World Finals' finale, Frankie was unfortunately involved in a heat race incident, but later stormed towards the front of his B-Main to garner the second and final transfer position. At the end of fifty green flag racing laps, the Frankfort, Illinois standout finished twenty-sixth and officially earned tenth in the final version of the WOOLMS point standings.
