World of Outlaws gear up for Pennsylvania Posse war

Lincoln Speedway enemy territory for the WoW.

This week the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads east into Central Pennsylvania where the opening shots in the 2015 battle between the Outlaws and the Posse will be fired.

First up is Lincoln Speedway's Gettysburg Clash on Wednesday, May 13. Last year's Clash saw veteran driver Stevie Smith score an emotional victory for his team owner Fred Rahmer. After retiring the previous season, Rahmer got his first Outlaws win as a car owner and saw his son Freddie Rahmer qualify for his first ever Outlaws feature.

"In all honesty, obviously the National Open was the biggest thing that happened to me in racing up until my kid qualified for his first outlaw race," Rahmer said following Smith's win. "Stevie winning is just icing on the cake. He deserves it. I know how great a driver he is - he just needed a good opportunity."

With Smith's win, the Posse fired the first shot of 2015. By the end of the season, the Outlaws took the Morgan Cup home but the two sides fought to a draw with Posse drivers winning four events to the Outlaws' four events.
