CONCORD, N.C. — For just the second time in 12 years, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series will return to Indiana’s Terre Haute Action Track Oct. 13.

The UMP Modifieds will be the support class for the evening.

The slightly banked half-mile track most recently hosted The Greatest Show on Dirt in 2014, an event that saw 33 cars sign in for competition with nine-time series champion Donny Schatz taking the victory.

“We have had a couple of great years since the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has visited. It has been a multiple groove track surface with great crowds and we are excited to have the World of Outlaws back in at The Action Track,” said Adam Mackey, Terre Haute Action Track general manager.

Prior to 2014, the ‘Outlaws’ most recent visit to The Action Track was 2006.

“The Outlaws are known worldwide, not just nationwide. We anticipate a lot of fans from multiple hours away coming to see the wicked fast Winged Sprint Cars at a track they haven’t seen them at,” Mackey added.

Schatz is the only active World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series regular that owns a victory at the Terre Haute Action Track, which holds roughly seven special events annually.
