BACK HOME AGAIN IN INDIANA: Terre Haute & Lawrenceburg Conclude the Month of May

Indianapolis 500 Weekend Shared with The Greatest Show on Dirt in The Hoosier State

The Month of May is sacred when it comes to the state of Indiana.

Now, race fans can witness The Greatest Spectacle in Racing at the Indianapolis 500 and The Greatest Show Dirt with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series all within a matter of days.

On Memorial Day Weekend as fans fill The Hoosier State, the World of Outlaws will be tackling two different Indiana dirt tracks.

The weekend gets started on Friday, May 28 as fans take in Carb Day at the big track before bustling over to the Terre Haute Action Track for a fuel-injected night of high-octane 410 Sprint Car Racing.

After two quick days off while the Indianapolis 500 finishes up, the World of Outlaws complete the weekend on Monday, May 31 with a return to the high banks of Lawrenceburg Speedway for a Memorial Day dose of The Greatest Show on Dirt.

Two of the 11 Indiana ovals to host World of Outlaws competition, Terre Haute will welcome the Series for its 29th appearance while Lawrecneburg runs its 17th show in Series history.

When it comes to the long, wide half-mile of Terre Haute, the Kinser’s have reigned supreme with cousins Steve and Mark each splitting six victories to own of 12 of a total 28 Outlaw shows at THAT. When it comes to today’s superstars, only Logan Schuchart, Brad Sweet, and Donny Schatz have tamed the Action Track.

At Lawrenceburg, 10-time Series champion Donny Schatz is still the winningest driver with a trio of wins aboard his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing #15 coming in 2009, 2013 and 2014. Sweet and his Kasey Kahne Racing #49 team, the reigning champions, won at The Burg in 2018, but his brother-in-law Kyle Larson is actually the most recent winner in 2019.

Next month’s return to Indiana will mark the World of Outlaws’ final two stops of the season in The Hoosier State. Earlier this month in April, the Series ventured to Kokomo Speedway where James McFadden led a KKR 1-2 and Tri-State Speedway where Carson Macedo outlasted McFadden in an instant classic at the 1/4-mile.

Through the first 15 of 83 scheduled events, the story has been the unprecedented level of competition amongst the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. A non-full-time driver has yet to win with the Series through 15 races, something that has only happened once (2016) over the last decade.

Grass Valley, CA’s Brad Sweet has been most impressive, rattling off a four-race win streak to take command of the points chase with his third consecutive championship on the line this year. Hot on Sweet’s heels are worthy championship contenders like Bristol titan David Gravel in the Big Game Motorsports #2, consistent Carson Macedo with the Jason Johnson Racing #41, two-time winner Sheldon Haudenschild and the Stenhouse Jr. Marshall Racing #17 crew, and Aaron Reutzel aboard the Roth Motorsports #83.

Filling out the stacked roster of 15 full-time Outlaws which brings a handful potential winners on any given night is the likes of modern legend Donny Schatz, Shark Racing’s duo of Logan Schuchart & Jacob Allen, fellow rookies Brock Zearfoss, Parker Price-Miller & James McFadden, along with veterans such as Kraig Kinser, Jason Sides & Wayne Johnson, as well as sophomore Mason Daniel.

Fans who can’t make it to the track can catch all of the action on DIRTVision with the annual Platinum FAST PASS subscription for $299/year or the monthly FAST PASS subscription for $39/month.
