CONCORD, N.C. — For just the second time in 12 years, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to the Terre Haute Action Track, with a mid-October date confirmed for the tour’s schedule next year.
The Outlaws will make their Terre Haute return on Oct. 13, 2018, with the UMP Modifieds serving as the support class for the evening.
The slightly-banked Indiana half-mile last hosted The Greatest Show on Dirt in 2014, an event that saw 33 cars sign in for competition and now nine-time series champion Donny Schatz take the victory.
“We have had a couple of great years since the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has visited,” said Terre Haute Action Track general manager Adam Mackey. “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.”
Prior to 2014, the Outlaws most recent visit to The Action Track was 2006.
“The Outlaws are known worldwide, not just nationwide,” added Mackey. “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.”
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.
