Persistent Rain Forces World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series To Postpone March 7 Event At Ocean Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. -- Feb. 23, 2009 -- Sunny California didn't shine enough to dry out Ocean Speedway in preparation for its March 7 World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series event. Rain has left track and series officials looking for another date to compete at the Watsonville, Calif., bullring.

"Due to the recent rain activity, we unfortunately must cancel the World of Outlaws race scheduled on March 7, 2009," Ocean Speedway promoter John Prentice said. "We will continue to work with the organization to secure a new date in the season. If you purchased a ticket, you will be receiving a full refund for the amount you were charged. If you paid by credit card, the credit should appear within one cycle."

Last fall at Ocean Speedway, Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws champion, battled Jac Haudenschild to the checkered flag in a thriller, winning by less than a second in the series' first race at the track since 2002.

The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to action Thursday night at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (www.lvms.com), and will then motor to California to compete March 13-14 in the Mini Gold Cup at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico (www.handyracingpromotions.com), March 20-21 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare (www.thunderbowlraceway.com/) and then onto Arizona where it will race March 28 at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix (www.manzanitaspeedway.us).
