World of Outlaws returning to Red River Valley Speedway
WEST FARGO – The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to Red River Valley Speedway in 2019. The event scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 17, will mark the third consecutive year and 33rd time overall dirt track racing’s premier touring series will race on the high-banked, 3/8-mile clay oval track.
Fargo’s own Donny Schatz scored his first World of Outlaws win at the Seedway since 2006 when he won this past August. It was part of a 22-win season for Schatz – his sixth consecutive season of winning at least 20 events.
The Northern Late Model Racing Association (NLRA) will co-headline the event with the Outlaws again in 2019. Schatz is expected to compete in both the sprint car and late model divisions.
Red River Valley Speedway has released its tentative 2019 schedule for Friday night IMCA-sanctioned racing. Highlights include the season opener on May 3, the Red River Valley Fair special on Sunday, July 14 featuring the Buffalo Wild Wings Northern Outlaw Sprint Cars and season championship night on August 30.
