Concord, NC — Canandaigua Speedway’s ‘Wings & Warriors Tour’ Features World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and World of Outlaws Late Models
Rolling Wheels’ World of Outlaws Sprint Car Race Now Oct. 10 During Super DIRT Week.

The 2009 New York Outlaw Invasion is a blockbuster. The inaugural “Wings & Warriors Tour” at Canandaigua Speedway will feature the world’s most prolific dirt track racers from the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on May 25 and the World of Outlaws Late Model Series on June 23.

Plus, the superstars of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and their jet-like race cars will be featured during the 38th Annual Super DIRT Week festivities when they race Saturday, Oct. 10, at Rolling Wheels Raceway, giving New York its biggest stake in the series’ championship battle in years.

Beginning today, fans who purchase the $65 Wings & Warriors Tour advance reserved combo ticket package for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on May 25 and the World of Outlaws Late Models on June 23 will receive a pit pass to each event. That’s a savings of $80 over purchasing the same tickets on race day. Tickets can be reserved at the DIRTcar Racing Northeast Region office by calling 315-834-6606.

“Last year the World of Outlaws Late Model Series came to Canandaigua Speedway and put on an incredible show in front of a packed house,” GM Jack Deery said. “Ours fans asked for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars to come back, too. We’re thrilled we can make that happen, and offer our fans an affordable combo ticket with the opportunity to get a pit pass for free to both events. I believe the Wings & Warriors Tour will be the biggest thing Canandaigua Speedway has seen in a long, long time.

“On top of that, to have the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars be part of Super DIRT Week again is very exciting. It will no doubt make Central New York the focal point of dirt track racing in October.”

In addition to the World of Outlaws series, DIRTcar Big Block Modifieds will also be featured at the May 25 event with the BRP Late Models racing on June 23, making that night one of the biggest Dirt Late Model shows in New York history.

Stevie Smith captured the most recent World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series feature in 1999 at Canandaigua. Jac Haudenschild set a track record of 14.773 seconds at 121.844 mph in 1997. Steve Kinser has won four World of Outlaws A-mains at Canandaigua, more than any other driver.

Josh Richards won the World of Outlaws Late Model Series event last season at Canandaigua Speedway. The Wings & Warriors Tour will mark the series’ second appearance there.
