Rain Forces World of Outlaws, Knoxville To Postpone Budweiser Night

Knoxville, IA -- April 29, 2006 -- For the second Saturday in a row, Mother Nature has rained on the World of Outlaws. With steady rain falling throughout central Iowa for the past few days and more in the forecast for the evening, World of Outlaws and Knoxville Raceway officials decided to postpone Budweiser Night at the historic half-mile oval.

Officials are working to set a make-up date for the event with an announcement expected to come early in the week.

The rainout also shuffles the television lineup on The Outdoor Channel. With rain falling during the day in Iowa, several teams are gathering at the Rush Racing shop in Des Moines along with John Gibson, Brad Doty and The Outdoor Channel crew to film an episode of Elbows Up! to air on Wednesday, May 3. The teams and World of Outlaws officials will then head north for Sunday's event at Huset's Speedway just outside of Sioux Falls, S.D.

In addition, next Friday night's event, the Missouri High Bank Nationals presented by Weld Wheels, will be televised by The Outdoor Channel on May 10.

Following tomorrow's race at Huset's Speedway, the World of Outlaws schedule picks up with the highly anticipated Missouri High-Banked Nationals presented by Weld Wheels on May 5 at U.S. 36 Raceway followed May 6 by the Third Annual Wichita Twister Showdown at 81 Speedway just outside Wichita, Kan. The series then heads toward its first East Coast Swing with events May 12 at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio; the Ohio Challenge II on May 13 at K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio; Thunder on the Hill on May 16 at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pa.; and the Commonwealth Clash on May 19 at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pa., that sets the stage for the $50,000 Challenge on May 19 at Sharon Speedway.
