Severe Weather Forces Postponement of World of Outlaws Tonight

The event at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13

PEVELY, Mo. – April 14, 2012 – Severe weather the past 24 hours and continuing showers have forced the World of Outlaws and track officials to postpone tonight’s event at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55.

It has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 13. Sold out reserved tickets will now be valid for the Oct. 13 race.

Joey Saldana claimed Friday’s feature at Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, Ky., to pull within five points of championship leader Sammy Swindell. It was Saldana’s second win of the season, which puts him a top the leader board with Tim Kaeding and Donny Schatz, who is third in the points standings – only 12 behind Swindell.
