Wichita Twister Showdown Set For June 30 At 81 Speedway, Boot Hill Showdown To Run July 1 at Dodge City Raceway Park

Norman, OK -- June 8, 2006 -- The World of Outlaws Sprint Series, 81 Speedway, SLS Promotions, and Dodge City Raceway Park have worked together to create a huge holiday weekend of racing action in Kansas.

The Third Annual Wichita Twister Showdown at 81 Speedway, postponed by rain in early May, will run on June 30 in a $51,600 event paying $10,000 to the winner. The following night, July 1, the Mean 15 drivers will mosey to the Old West town of Dodge City with their 850-horsepower machines for the previously scheduled Boot Hill Showdown at the grand Dodge City Raceway Park for another $51,600 night that pays $10,000 to the winner. A crew from The Outdoor Channel will film the Boot Hill Showdown to air later in July.

Those races will be part of another busy stretch for the World of Outlaws Sprint Series. The series will roll into Wichita after a two-day show June 23-24 at famed Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway and then following the Boot Hill Showdown it will head north on July 3 to racy Huset's Speedway in Brandon, S.D., where earlier this season Brooke Tatnell picked up his first victory of the season.

Tickets purchased for the May 6 race at 81 Speedway will be honored on June 30. Tickets also can be purchased by calling the track at 316-755-1781. Tickets begin at $28 for adults, with the popular pit combo available for $35. The grandstands are scheduled to open at 4 p.m. with racing set for 7:30 p.m. An autograph session featuring several Mean 15 racers will be at 4:30 p.m.
