Commuters Can Expect Rush Hour Congestion Around Lowe's Motor Speedway This Week

With four nights of World of Outlaws racing scheduled at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway this week, rush hour commuters traveling on Highway 29 or Bruton Smith Blvd. can expect increased traffic in the speedway area each evening, Wednesday through Saturday.

During your traffic reports, please advise rush hour commuters to plan accordingly by taking alternate routes.

Wednesday's Armour Foods Vienna Sausage Showdown presented by Ferris Commercial Mowers will feature NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stars Ryan Newman, David Gilliland and Ken Schrader as they compete against the nation's top World of Outlaws Late Model Series drivers, including Scott Bloomquist, Steve Francis, Darrell Lanigan and Tim McCreadie.

Fans from 46 states, five Canadian provinces and four other countries will be in attendance Thursday through Saturday for the VAULT World Finals. This event brings together the top two dirt racing series, the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, to end their seasons and crown their champions.

Thursday night includes practice and qualifying for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and Late Models, plus "Breaking the VAULT" dash races for each division. The two series will each have twin time trial sessions with the first round determining lineups for Friday night and the second round setting the Saturday night card. A pit crew challenge will conclude the first night of the VAULT World Finals. Full racing programs are on tap for both divisions Friday and Saturday with each night highlighted by $10,000-to-win main events for both sprint cars and late models.
