Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Northern New England to Present the World of Outlaws Empire State Challenge on July 29

 WEEDSPORT, NY – After a year’s absence due to two separate rainouts at Weedsport Speedway, the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series returns to The Port on Sunday, July 29 for the Empire State Challenge presented by the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Northern New England.

All of the cars and stars of the World of Outlaws tour including Donny Schatz, Sheldon Haudenschild, Brad Sweet, Shane Stewart, Jason Johnson, David Gravel and more will be a part of the evening as they join the newly formed Hall of Fame Weekend at Weedsport featuring the Super DIRTcar Series Big Blocks on Saturday, July 28.

Coca-Cola will present the racing action on July 29 and once again returns as the official soft drink of Weedsport Speedway.

“Coca-Cola and auto racing have become a formidable pairing over the years,” said Weedsport Speedway promoter, Jimmy Phelps.  “We are pleased to have Coca-Cola on board for 2018 and hope our fans enjoy stopping down to one of our many concessions options this coming season for an ice-cold refreshment, especially during what we hope will be a warm and sunny Hall of Fame Weekend.”
