BEAVER DAM, Wis. — Changes have been made to the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series stop at Beaver Dam Raceway, creating the Beaver Dam Bash.

The originally scheduled event on June 20 has been canceled and will be replaced with a two-day, limited-seating event on June 5-6.

The World of Outlaws and World Racing Group will be leasing the track on June 5-6 for the event and handling all of the ticketing and operations.

The event will have limited attendance and no camping, per county guidelines. Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. ET on May 26 at WorldofOutlaws.com.

Upon arriving, fans and participants will have their temperatures taken and be asked to complete a health questionnaire. Hand sanitizer will be provided in one-ounce bottles and social distancing will be required.

CDC guidelines recommend wearing face covers, but they are not mandatory in the grandstand.

Fans will be allowed to use stadium-style chairs, blankets and lawn chairs in the general admission areas. Lawn chair and table seating areas will be first-come, first-serve and will not be reserved.

Those who purchased tickets through SLS Promotions online or over the phone for the original June 20 event, will automatically receive a refund to the credit card/debit card that was used to purchase the tickets.​

Current tickets holders who had already purchased tickets for the original June race will have a special grace period to purchase tickets from the World of Outlaws.

A forthcoming email to those patrons will provide additional details.

From Hall of Famer Dave Blaney’s victory in 1996 to champion Brad Sweet’s win in 2019, Beaver Dam Raceway has played a key role in World of Outlaws history.

While Sweet has two victories, Daryn Pittman has won four times at Beaver Dam, the most of any World of Outlaws driver, and still owns the track qualifying record.

Bill Balog is the only driver not running the tour who has defeated the Outlaws at the third-mile, high-banked dirt oval, when he accomplished the feat in 2016.

“Beaver Dam Raceway has traditionally been one of the most exciting tracks on the World of Outlaws tour, and the track team led by owner Scott Boyd and his team continue to improve the facility each year,” World of Outlaws Series Director Carlton Reimers said. “This will be the first time we’ve been able to race on back-to-back nights at Beaver Dam, giving everybody the chance to enjoy a huge Wisconsin weekend in a state that is safely reopening its communities.”

The two-day event at Beaver Dam, centrally located in the Dairy State about an hour from Madison and Milwaukee, replaces events scheduled for June 5 at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., and June 6 at Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minn.
