ELDON, Mo. – The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will return to Lake Ozark Speedway on Oct. 17 for the Jason Johnson Classic presented by FK Rod Ends.

The event, which was originally scheduled for May before being postponed, will see a star-studded field of drivers compete for a $15,000 top prize and will pay $1,000-to-start.

David Gravel brought Jason Johnson Racing a home win during the inaugural Jason Johnson Classic last year and will be on the hunt to do so again in October.

However, he’ll have the likes of 10-time Outlaw champion Donny Schatz and Logan Schuchart – who won at the third-mile track in May – as well as reigning champion Brad Sweet, who won at the track last year, to contend with also.

With the championship points battle even tighter than it was last year, the Jason Johnson Classic will play a key part in setting up the title hunt, with only three races remaining after it.
