JACKSON, MN (July 18, 2023) – The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ Summer of Money heats up in August with a return to Jackson Motorplex for the 45th annual AGCO Jackson Nationals.

The three-day marquee event, Aug. 17-19, will showcase two $10,000-to-win Features Thursday and Friday, and then payout $25,000 for Saturday’s main event – also paying $2,000 to start.

Since becoming a World of Outlaws event in 2017, four-time and reigning champion and Logan Schuchart are the only two drivers with multiple Jackson Nationals triumphs. Sweet won in 2017 and 2019, while Schuchart went back-to-back in 2020 and 2021.

The other years belong to 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz, in 2018, and Carson Macedo, who scored the prestigious win last year.

With the event taking place the weekend after the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals, it is projected to attract a large field of competitors, including weekly competitors like current track points leader Aaron Reutzel, rising star Chase Randall, veteran Brooke Tatnell and more.
