I-30 Speedway Cancels Saturday’s World of Outlaws Late Model Series Event Due To Wet Conditions Following Winter Storms


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – March 17, 2015 - – Lingering wet conditions from the same winter storm systems that led to the cancellation of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway'’s March 20 World of Outlaws Late Model Series event have forced officials from I-30 Speedway to also cancel the WoO LMS event scheduled for March 21 at I-30.

Large accumulations of snow that have slowly thawed and frequent rain have left the quarter-mile oval and its surrounding facility heavily saturated, with large portions of the track’s pit area inaccessible. With forecasts predicting more wet weather later in the week, track promoter Tracey Clay was forced to call off the event.

"“I want to thank Tracey and her father, Joe for their efforts to host this race,"” WoO LMS Series Director Tim Christman said. “"They'’ve always done everything possible to get our races in. Unfortunately, the harsh weather this winter has made it impossible for the track to host a major event this weekend.”"

In light of the cancellation, I-30 Speedway hopes to host an open practice on Sun., March 22 for its local divisions. More information is available by visiting www.I-30speedway.com.

World of Outlaws Late Model Series competitors return to action at the Douglas Dodge Ram Trucks Illini 100 March 26-28 at Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Ill. The blockbuster weekend features an open practice on Thurs., March 26 ahead of two separate WoO LMS programs on Fri., March 27 and Sat., March 28. Friday’s program features a 30-lap A-Main paying $6,000 to the winner, while Saturday’s main event winner will pocket a whopping $15,000.

General admission ticket prices for the Illini 100 are $25 for Friday and $35 for Saturday. Two-day tickets with a reserved seat are available in advance at the reduced price of $50. Two-day ticket prices at the gate will be $55 without reserved seating. Tickets are available now at http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com.

Short Track Nationals Slated for Final Weekend of October

Lonnie Wheatley, LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (January 27, 2015) – I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals. It’s an event that race teams and race fans alike from all corners of the country eagerly anticipate each year.

And this year is no different, with the 28th version of the premier 360-ci Sprint Car event in the country set for October 28-31, 2015.

This year’s rendition of the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires will once again kick off with the Short Track Nationals Open on Wednesday night, October 28, before moving on to two full qualifying nights that set the stage for the $15,000-to-win STN finale on October 31.

In what has become an annual pilgrimage to Little Rock, Ark., for many to determine bragging rights for the next twelve months, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell became the event’s 17th different winner this past October by defeating a field of competitors from all across the nation.

Bell joined a prestigious list of winners that includes names such as Kinser, Swindell and Wright along with current Outlaw regulars including Paul McMahan, Brad Sweet, Jason Johnson and Jason Sides among others.

Gary Wright ranks as the only four-time STN champion with triumphs in 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2004. Sammy Swindell added his third win in 2013 to previous scores in 1990 and 2011 to match Steve Kinser’s three STN wins (1988, 1989 and 1991) with two-time STN winners including McMahan (2002 and 2012) and Tony Bruce, Jr. (2008 and 2009).

In addition to Bell, others capturing STN honors on one occasion include Brad Sweet (2010), Jason Meyers (2007), Jason Johnson (2006), Tim Montgomery (2005), Jason Sides (2001), Mike Ward (2000), Tim Crawley (1998), Wayne Johnson (1997), Pete Butler (1996), Terry Gray (1994) and John Gerloff (1993). The 1992 edition fell victim to rain.

Additional information including entry and ticket information will become available as the event draws closer.
