World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Prepares for New Cedar Lake Speedway Summer Destination Event

‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ takes center stage at Cedar Lake Speedway Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown on July 11-12

CONCORD, N.C. – June 23, 2015 – The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and Cedar Lake Speedway are preparing for a new weekend destination event this summer with the two-day Cedar Lake Speedway Outlaw Sprint Car Showdown on Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12.

The Showdown will bring back-to-back nights of racing action to the 3/8-mile clay oval in New Richmond, Wis., as the series competes for two $10,000-to-win purses. The new weekend destination event is the culmination of 30 years of Outlaw history at the track.

“Cedar Lake is one of the few tracks on the World of Outlaws schedule that has been a fixture since the beginning,” World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers said. “It is exciting to be able to expand this great event and provide the passionate fan base of Cedar Lake with another opportunity to see The Greatest Show on Dirt.”

In addition to World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, the Showdown weekend will feature A-modifieds and the traditional 360 sprint cars of the Upper Midwest Sprint Car Series.

Cedar Lake Speedway, 40 miles east of Minneapolis, has been a staple on the series schedule since 1983, and is a favorite of many of the series regulars, including CJB Motorsports’ Paul McMahan.

“It’s a neat racetrack,” said McMahan, a 2007 winner at Cedar Lake. “It has a great fan base that’s always been supportive. I’m looking forward to being there for two days.”

Six-time series champion Donny Schatz won at Cedar Lake in 2014, adding to two previous wins at the track.
