Illinois, Indiana Visits Continue World Of Outlaws Midwest Swing

GRANITE CITY, Ill. — A pair of historic racetracks await the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series this weekend. The World of Outlaws haven’t circled the Illinois three-eighths-mile in 15 years. Both ovals first hosted a race during the World of Outlaws’ second year of existence – 1979. The World of Outlaws haven’t competed in Granite City since 2008. Rose has made a pair of Tri-City appearances with the World of Outlaws (’01 & ’05). Last year, Carson Macedo made history when he became the first driver to top three consecutive World of Outlaws races at Tri-State Speedway. The unique oval that is Tri-State Speedway has proven to present an opportunity at first career World of Outlaws wins. In total, Tri-State Speedway has produced six first time winners through its 42 World of Outlaws races. The World of Outlaws may have not competed recently at Tri-City, but the track has still hosted some sprint car action over the last few years – mainly the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) Sprints.
