The Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will contest the first short track race of the 2008 season on Saturday, April 5 at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri. In 29 A-Feature events at I-55 Raceway dating back to 1987, 19 different drivers have tasted victory with the series at the high-banked 1/3-mile which is co-owned by NASCAR star Ken Schrader. The last 12 races have produced 12 different winners, including nine drivers that will be in the field on Saturday.

Dollansky won the opening night of the season during the Alltel DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park in Florida, while Meyers was victorious the following night and also won the series most recent event at Manzanita Speedway in Arizona.

Dollansky won at the track located just outside of St. Louis, in 2004, while Meyers seeks his first win at the high-banked oval.

Steve Kinser, the 20-time series champion, leads all active Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series drivers with four A-Feature wins at I-55 Raceway. Jac Haudenschild is right behind him with three triumphs.
