PLANO, TX (November 16) - The Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series' end-of-the-millennium schedule released Monday features increased television coverage, several new facilities and two postponed events.
Twelve live races on TNN: The Nashville Network dot the series' 1999 schedule. There will also be three repeats as the Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series' media partner continues to beam the best in sprint car racing into the homes of its fans.
The season opens February 26-27 at Manzanita Speedway for the third straight year. Following a March 3rd visit to Kings Speedway, TNN will televise the feature racing program from the Silver State Shootout, scheduled for March 5-6 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
