HAUBSTADT, IN - April 13, 2013. The racing season at Tri-State
Speedway will begin with a blast of fast winged sprint car excitement
as the World of Outlaws tackle the quarter mile oval on Saturday
night April 20th. It will be the second stop that weekend for the
ever touring pros. An appearance at Paducah, KY, the night before
will provide an extraordinary weekend of outlaw racing and should
heighten the interest of fans and teams across the region.
The World of Outlaws have already competed in more than a dozen
shows. Heading into April, racing stops in Florida, Nevada, Arizona,
and California produced 10 different feature winners. Darryn
Pittman, Paul McMahan, Joey Saldana, Sammy Swindell, and Donnie
Schatz have the early advantage in the WoO STP season's points battle
as they swing back into the Midwest.
Reserved tickets for this event are already on sale. Qualifying
starts at 6:30 PM with race action set for 7:30 PM (CST).

for $3,000 to win. This is the first year for such an event and it
is being billed as the Tri-State Summer Showdown - Summit Modified
Nationals. The PCRA Late Models will also be racing on June 8th.
