The Pennzoil World of Outlaws made their annual swing through the northern Midwest last week competing in North Dakota and Minnesota. Red River Valley Speedway in Fargo, ND, played host to the Outlaws for three nights of racing beginning on Thursday. The Outlaws were challenged at the half-mile dirt oval because each night the racing surface was different. Sammy Swindell kicked off the program by winning Thursday preliminary on a track that was hurting tires in hot laps. Danny Lasoski finally visited victory lane for the first time since May 6 on Friday in the second preliminary feature on a very heavy racing surface. In Saturday's finale, Craig Dollansky was the class of the field after taking the early lead from Johnny Herrera. Dollansky looked as though he would win the feature race, but a punctured right rear tire forced Dollansky to give up the lead. Sammy Swindell took over and led the final three laps to claim win number four in the 2000 season. On Monday, the Outlaws competed at Cedar Lake Raceway near St. Paul, MN. Donny Schatz got the early jump, but it Sammy Swindell leading the first five circuits when a broken axle caused the Channellock #1 to flip. Danny Lasoski took over the lead and held the post until lap 16 when Dale Blaney passed "the Dude". After a lengthy caution, Blaney was passed by Mark Kinser on lap 22. Blaney stuck on Kinser's bumper, but couldn't make a pass for the win. This week the Outlaws will spend three nights racing at Eldora Speedway with Saturday's King's Royal culminating the weekend and kicking off "the month of money" by paying $50,000 to the winner. TNN will televise both Friday and Saturday's events beginning at 9:00 PM (ET).
