World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series at a Glance:

Belleville (Kan.) High Banks and Lakeside (Kansas City, Kan.) Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. — May 29, 2011 — The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is kicking off the month of June with a trip to Kansas and two of the most exciting dates on the summer schedule. On Friday, June 3, the Outlaws will make a long-anticipated return to the Belleville High Banks, a speedway the series hasn’t visited since 1981. The following night, Saturday, June 4, the ‘Greatest Show on Dirt,’ will invade Lakeside Speedway for the 10th time in series history. Last year, 20-time champion Steve Kinser won an exciting shootout at Lakeside and looks to use experience there to wrestle the points lead away from Joey Saldana. Kinser had given up a large lead early on but has regained traction on the season and is now within nine points of Saldana’s #9 Red Bull Maxim following the action on Saturday night at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.

Kinser’s Tony Stewart Racing teammate, Donny Schatz, is also coming on strong. The Fargo, N.D., native picked up his first victory of the season at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park on Friday, May 20, and finished third Saturday night in Charlotte.

As the series heads for the Sunflower state, who will take the checkers to kick off the month of June? Will Steve Kinser add to his total? Does Saldana use a win or two to pad his points lead? Can 2010 Champion Jason Meyers find victory lane for the first time this year and tighten an already close points battle? These questions and more will be answered as the Outlaws schedule and the weather begin to heat up.

WHEN

Friday, June 3, at the Belleville High Banks in Belleville, Kan. Hot Laps begin at 6:30 and racing kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, June 4, at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. Grandstand gates open at 5 p.m. Hot Laps will be at 7:00 p.m. with racing at 7:30 p.m.
