Rain Washes Out WoO California Doubleheader


CONCORD, N.C. – Persistent rain showers and saturated grounds at Ocean Speedway and Placerville Speedway have forced World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and track officials to scrap this weekend’s planned racing events.

Friday’s event at Ocean has been cancelled, while Saturday’s event at Placerville has been rescheduled to Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Those who purchased tickets to Placerville’s event will have their tickets automatically moved to the rescheduled date in September. Those with tickets to Friday’s event at Ocean Speedway will receive a full ticket-value credit to their MyDirtTickets.com account to be used towards any World of Outlaws event available at WorldofOutlaws.com/tix.

Fans unable to attend the rescheduled Placerville event have 30 days to call 844-DIRT-TIX to speak with a customer service representative about their options.

Rain hasn’t completely washed out all motorsports activity this week in Placerville, however.

Last year’s Knoxville Nationals winner, Brad Sweet, and NHRA Funny Car World Champion Ron Capps will still make an appearance rain or shine at Riebes NAPA Auto Parts in Placerville from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21.

The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series Western Swing continues on Friday, March 29 at Keller Auto Speedway (formerly Kings Speedway) in Hanford.
