CONCORD, NC – After the pivotal swing through Wisconsin takes the Series to Plymouth Dirt Track, Shawano Speedway, and Cedar Lake Speedway for the $50,000-to-win USA Nationals, the Outlaws get back to the state where the Wild West Shootout (Take II) began, the Hawkeye State.
The 3/8-mile of Farley Speedway, located west of Dubuque in Farley, IA, will host the World of Outlaws for the first time in 13 years, and only the third time ever, on Monday, August 6th with a $10,000-to-win payday. Farley was one of the original tracks on the schedule the first two years after the 2004 rebirth.
“We are looking forward to bringing the World of Outlaw Craftsman Late Model Series stars, along with our local stars, together on the fast 3/8-mile of Farley Speedway,” said Joe Hayes of Farley Speedway Promotions Inc. “Farley Speedway is known for hosting large special events, and this one is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated events of the summer,” he added.
During the last visit, in 2005, Rick Eckert, the last remaining member of the fabled Dirty Dozen who is still full-time with the Series today, went to Victory Lane. In the first-ever World of Outlaws race there in 2004, Scott Bloomquist crossed the checkers first to score the win on his way to the Series Championship that season. But the Outlaws have their work cut out for them against a strong field of locals.
Tickets are still available online for the final event of the Wild West Shootout (Take II).
