Skoal Outlaw Series Postpones West Plains Event

WEST PLAINS, MO (April 19) - Thunderstorms hit West Plains Motor Speedway Friday, forcing the Skoal Outlaw Series to postpone its inaugural event at the semi-banked, 3/8-mile oval. The $34,485 event has been re-scheduled for Sunday evening at 6 p.m. This marks the fifth straight weekend that Mother Nature has hindered the World of Outlaws' nationwide sprint car racing series. Gale-force winds forced series officials to postpone the Spring Nationals at State Fair Speedway in Oklahoma City twice. Snow at Eldora Speedway and rain at Memphis Motorsports Park caused double- feature events to be cut in half the last two weekends. Saturday's Skoal Outlaw Series event at Missouri International Race Park in Benton, MO, will be run on schedule, weather permitting. WoO

Skoal Outlaw Series Replaces Bridgeport With Grandview

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (April 19) - The Skoal Outlaw Series will race at Grandview Speedway instead of Bridgeport Speedway on August 5th, World of Outlaws President Ted Johnson announced Friday. "The regulations the New Jersey Highway Patrol is trying to impose on the World of Outlaws are different than what they're requiring for other series," Johnson said. "New Jersey's rules are completely different than those in any of the other 24 states we visit, and it would take too much time and money for our teams to get their cars ready for this one event. "We have no problem with the facility or the promoter. It's obvious to me the New Jersey Highway Patrol doesn't want us there." So Grandview, which also hosts the World of Outlaws on May 28th, gets another $34,485 event. The Skoal Outlaw Series raced at Grandview six times between 1980 and 1995. Jac Haudenschild passed Mark Kinser for the lead during the 12th lap and held off one-lap record holder Steve Kinser to win the most recent main event the World of Outlaws ran at Grandview, last May 30th. "The King of the Outlaws" is a two-time winner at Grandview. WoO
