Elbridge, N.Y. — (July 8, 2013) — With more than one late-race shakeup, the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has seen a dramatic week. The drama will double when “The Greatest Show on Dirt” hits “The Fast Track,” Rolling Wheels Raceway Park, Tuesday, July 23, and the 410 Sprint Cars maneuver the 5/8-mile oval with its famously fast long straightaways and wide curves.
Daryn Pittman continued to carry the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series point lead after a flat on the No. 15 took Donny Schatz out of the lead Saturday, July 6, at Dodge City Raceway Park widened the point gap. The night earlier, a last lap surge took Schatz to victory lane at Dodge City and on Wednesday, July 3, Tim Keading took the lead when Tony Stewart spun with five laps to go at Huset Speedway.
Now, the premier, nationally touring World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series is gearing up for the Brad Doty Classic Wednesday, July 10, at Limeland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio, the Knights Before the Kings Royal Friday and Saturday, July 12 and 13, at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio, the Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twins Tuesday, July 16, at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Penn., Summer Nationals Friday and Saturday, July 19 and 20, at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Penn., and a visit to Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, N. Y., Sunday, July 21.
Topping it off is the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Showdown at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park July 23, which marks the third of just four appearances by the series in New York State. The winged warriors battle it out on “The Fast Track” for what is bound to be the best sprint car action of the summer. DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds round out the racing action for the night.
