DUNDEE, NY – A tradition that began decades ago in Dundee, NY will continue in 2018 as the Outlaw Speedway will present the Annual NASCAR Celebrity Night presented by Lane’s Yamaha on Friday, August 3. Held in conjunction with nearby Watkins Glen International Speedway, Outlaw Speedway will once again present the fans with a night to remember at the Yates County oval.
“Traditionally we are keeping the theme alive with this cross promotion with our friends at WGI,” stated Outlaw Speedway owner, Tyler Siri. “For decades this track has opened its doors to virtually any Xfinity or Cup drivers or crew members that want to come to our track and enjoy a night of action on the dirt. We have had many of NASCAR’s top stars come here either to compete in actual races or to sign autographs or in some cases just to hang out and relax for the night in a no stress environment.”
2018 will be no exception as Ryan Blaney of Team Penske will make the short trip from nearby Watkins Glen International to the Outlaw Speedway in Dundee for a special autograph session and it’s all brought to you by Lane’s Yamaha of Watkins Glen.
“As always we can’t 100% totally guarantee the presence of any of NASCAR’s drivers, crew chiefs or television personalities that may plan to come to our facility. There are a number of factors that could alter their arrival at the track including Friday weather and flight delays or changes in the WGI schedule of events which could delay or totally change their plans. This is their livelihood and we appreciate their commitment to the fact that what is going on at WGI must come first, however we feel very confident as well as does Ryan Blaney that he will be here as scheduled. We are extremely excited to have him on board and the fans will be thrilled to meet him.” That once again from Siri.
In his short NASCAR career, Ryan Blaney has positioned himself as one of the top contenders in the series and having come from a famous racing family including his late grandfather, Lou Blaney, his father, Dave and uncle Dale, young Ryan Blaney has secured a ride in one of the best teams in NASCAR driving for the legendary Roger Penske.
On the card it will be a regular Super 7 Show featuring the Friendly Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Modifieds along with the Crate Sportsman and the Doug Gross Construction Crate Late Models. Also seeing action will be the Decker Farmers Insurance sponsored IMCA Modifieds as well as the classy Street Stocks, 4 cylinders and the Winner’s Circle Deli Bandits.
