February 20th, 2015 - Whitener Enters WoO Action at Volusia Speedway Park
A last-minute decision found the team pitted at Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Florida) on Thursday night. The World of Outlaws (WoO) Late Model Series hosted the final three rounds of the 44th Annual DIRTcar Nationals.

Thursday night's program boosted a $10,000 top prize to competitors, and a talent-laden field of forty-nine entries registered for battle. Struggles in qualifying pinned Whitener deep in a heat race where he was unable to reach a transfer position, sending him to a b-main. In the b-main, Mark would once again fail to reach a transfer position as his night came to an early end.

Forty-seven Super Late Models converged on the 1/2-mile oval for Friday night's, $10,000-to-win, WoO Late Model Series event. Unfortunately, the team would continue to struggle with the setup on their #58 Big Frog Motorsports/Dave's Towing entry, ultimately failing to qualify for the 50-lap main event.

Mark Whitener and Big Frog Motorsports kicked off the 39th Annual Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park (Tampa, Florida) on Tuesday night after Monday's events were postponed due to rain.

The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) event drew forty-two entries to the oval, and Mark would fall just one spot short of a transfer position in at race action.

Whitener advanced four positions during the course of the 25-lap, $5,000-to-win finale en route to a fourteenth place finish.

Wednesday night's program saw the winner's check increased to $7,000 as forty-three Super Late Models registered for battle.
