Greenwood, NE — (June 9, 2013) —  Rain has canceled tonight’s World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series NAPA Auto Parts Outlaw Showdown at I-80 Speedway, the final event of a three-day Midwest swing for the Outlaws.

Rain moved into the area Saturday night, and while officials were able to expedite the event at Lakeside Speedway, rain was pouring at I-80. After the best efforts of the track crew, it was clear there would be no way to have the track and grounds ready for racing tonight, forcing World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series and track officials to cancel the event, which will not be rescheduled.
