Nine More Events Added To World of Outlaws 2007 Schedule

The World of Outlaws on Monday announced nine more events for 2007, including the series' first visit to Ohsweken Speedway.

The first new event to the schedule will be during the season-opening DIRTcar Nationals Feb. 10 at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., giving the World of Outlaws three consecutive nights of racing from Feb. 9 to Feb. 11.

The World of Outlaws also will return to 1/3-mile Attica Raceway Park on April 20 in Attica, Ohio. Then, on May 31, the World of Outlaws will return for the first time since 1995 to 5/8-mile West Virginia Motor Speedway in Parkersburg, W.Va.

In another return to the World of Outlaws schedule is the star- studded Michael Ross Foundation's event on June 20 at half-mile Missouri State Fair Speedway in Sedalia, Mo. The event honors the memory of Michael Ross, who at five-years-old passed away in 1990 from a rare genetic disease.

On July 26, the World of Outlaws will invade Ohsweken Speedway in Ohsweken, Ontario, for the first time in series history. A 3/8-mile oval, Ohsweken Speedway is one of Canada's top sprint car tracks and the home of the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.

The World of Outlaws also will compete on four nights at edge-of-your- seat exciting 1/3-mile Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. The specific dates are still to be determined.

"We know it's important for our teams to have the opportunity to race as often as possible," said World of Outlaws Series Director Carlton Reimers. "We also want to bring the fast-paced, fan-thrilling World of Outlaws style of racing to as many dirt tracks around North America as we can for the fans, too. With these new events on our 2007 schedule, we're bringing the World of Outlaws to areas that haven't had a chance to see us race in a while so we're certainly looking forward to that."

The World of Outlaws launches the 2007 season on Feb. 9 at Volusia Speedway Park. The series expects to have around 85 events when its final schedule is released during the mid-December Performance Racing Industry trade show in Orlando.
