For just the second time in 12 years, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to the Terre Haute Action Track in 2018. The date is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 2018. The Scott's Custom Colors UMP Modifieds will be the support class for the evening. It will be the second day of a doubleheader at the track with USAC Sprint Cars racing on Friday, October 12.
The slightly banked ½ mile track located in Indiana most recently hosted The Greatest Show on Dirt in 2014, an event that saw 33 cars sign in for competition with nine-time Series Champion, Donny Schatz taking the victory.
“We have had a couple of great years since the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has visited. It has been a multiple groove track surface with great crowds and we are excited to have the World of Outlaws back in at The Action Track,” said Adam Mackey, the Terre Haute Action Track General Manager.
Prior to 2014, the ‘Outlaws’ most recent visit to The Action Track was 2006. “The Outlaws are known worldwide, not just nationwide. We anticipate a lot of fans from multiple hours away coming to see the wicked fast Winged Sprint Cars at a track they haven’t seen them at,” Mackey added.
The aforementioned Schatz is the only active World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series regular that owns a victory at the Terre Haute Action Track, which holds roughly seven special events annually. Will Schatz add to his legacy in 2018 or will there be a new face in the Terre Haute Action Track Victory Lane?
As previously mentioned, the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Cars will be in action the night before, Friday, with the Scott’s Custom Colors UMP Modifieds. The two-day show will be a can’t miss on racing fans’ fall schedules.
