Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 27, 2019) – Those two September nights have been circled on the calendar for some time now.
And now the days are clicking away rapidly, signaling the approach of the greatest Sprint Car drivers in the world takin on the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval in southwest Kansas for the annual World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars “Boot Hill Showdown” on Friday and Saturday, September 20-21.
A true Showdown worthy of Dodge City’s wild west history, Donny Schatz is gunning for an 11th World of Outlaws championship but Cali shoe Brad Sweet and reigning Knoxville Nationals champion David Gravel of Connecticut are both taking their best shot at knocking off the reigning WoO king.
Throw in other top guns including past series champion Daryn Pittman, Kyle Larson Racing shoe Carson Macedo, Oklahoma ace Shane Stewart, Shark Racing’s Logan Schuchart and Jacob Allen, Aussie Ian Madsen, NOS racer Sheldon Haudenschild, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks, past DCRP “Boot Hill Showdown” winners Kraig Kinser and Jason Sides and more and it’s an event that can’t be missed.
The Inaugural Outlaw Rib Shootout will be a part of the festivities as well on Saturday, September 21, with WoO team members judging the 40 entries to see who serves up the most savory of ribs.
