The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will return to Red River Valley Speedway in West Fargo, N.D., again this season on Sunday, August 23 as Gerdau presents “The Red River Rumble.” Joining the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at Red River Valley Speedway will be the IMCA Stock Cars.
The event will mark the 33rd Feature event contested by the series at the track, dating back to 1981. A total of 14 drivers have picked up Feature wins with the series at the track during that span. The Outlaws were scheduled to compete at the 3/8-mile last year, but that event fell to inclement weather.
Donny Schatz who calls Fargo home, won for the fifth time at Red River Valley Speedway in 2018. The 10-time Series champion was victorious both nights of the 2006 “Duel in the Dakotas.” Schatz has won at least once at every track in his home state of North Dakota that the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has competed it. He raced with the Outlaws for the first time at Red River Valley Speedway as a teenager in 1993, finishing 15th.
Brad Sweet, the reigning Outlaws champion, is picking up where he left off last year. The Californian was victorious on the second night of the season at the DIRTcar Nationals and was on the podium all three nights in Florida.
