The Outlaws have not been at Port Royal in over a decade – Donny Schatz is the last winner, but Cody Darrah has more recent experience at the track
CONCORD, N.C. – Oct. 23, 2014 – It has been 10 years since the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series has been to Port Royal Speedway. One driver though has more recent experience at the track – Cody Darrah.
In 2009, the Red Lion, Pa.-native won one of the biggest races of his career – the Dream Race Extreme III at Port Royal. The then 19-year-old Darrah held off Greg Hodnett and battled Don Kreitz Jr., Adam Wilt and Todd Shaffer to win the $15,000, 40-lap event.
It was also at Port Royal the year before, in 2008, that Darrah won his third career sprint car feature.
This season, Darrah has two World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series wins with his Kasey Kahne Racing Ollie’s Bargain Outlet team – one at Kings Speedway and another at Lernerville Speedway. He is seventh in the championship standings.
Donny Schatz is the most recent winner of an Outlaws event at the track in 2004. Schatz, the series points leader, has 26 wins on the season, including the last two.
Saturday’s feature will have an earlier than normal start time. Hot laps are scheduled for 4:35 p.m. with the first heat races taking place at 5:30 p.m. Great seats are still available. For more information and to buy tickets, visit http://www.WoOSprint.com/Fremont-Speedway.
