World of Outlaws to Visit Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, July 5

West Memphis, AR-- June 27, 2008--The Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will be making a return visit to Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas on Saturday, July 5 for the Summer Nationals. The event will take the place of the originally scheduled race at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri which was postponed due to the recent flooding in the Midwest which left the access road to the track impassable.

The Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returned to the ¼-mile Riverside International Speedway for the first time in nearly 25 years last season, with Daryn Pittman picking up a very emotional win with a number of family members on-hand, as he held off Jason Solwold and Steve Kinser.

The series has competed eight times at the track dating back to 1981, with Kinser winning the series inaugural event at the track. The 20-time series champion is the only driver that has won more than once with the series at Riverside International Speedway.

The Fourth of July weekend will be a busy one for the World of Outlaws beginning on Thursday, July 3 at Huset's Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota, continuing at Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, July 5 and wrapping up on Sunday, July 6 at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana.
