GRAND FORKS, N.D. (December 4, 2018) – The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will visit the country’s baddest bullring twice in 2019. The “Greatest Show on Dirt” will make its first stop at River Cities Speedway on Friday, June 7th for the first leg of the Northern Tour.
The series will return to Grand Forks following the Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa on Friday, August 16th.
In one of the most memorable World of Outlaws races at River Cities, North Dakota natives Donny Schatz and Mark Dobmeier finished one-two back in August. The win for Schatz was his seventh at the three-tenths-mile clay oval in the last eight starts. Dobmeier charged his way from the 17th starting position to challenge Schatz in the closing stages before finishing second.
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series first competed at River Cities Speedway in 2007, with Joey Saldana picking up the win in the inaugural event. A total of eight drivers have been victorious at the track with the series over the last 11 years.
Information on tickets for both the 1st Leg and 2nd Leg of the 2018 Northern Tour for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., will be available soon at www.slspromotions.com.
