PORT ROYAL, Pa. — The final battle of the year between the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and the Pennsylvania Posse will be bigger than ever this year.
After persistent rains forced the postponement of the Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway last weekend, World of Outlaws officials have been working with the speedway to pull together a spectacular season finale at the end of October.
The 51st annual Tuscarora 50, with its unique format, will now be a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event, replacing the second night of the Nittany Showdown scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26-27.
The Nittany Showdown, originally scheduled as a two-day event this year, will now return to a one-day format on Oct. 26, followed by the $51,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 on Oct. 27.
The Tuscarora 50 was originally scheduled for last Saturday night and was slated to be sanctioned by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. Mother Nature had other plans and forced track and series officials to postpone the event to Sunday, but rain prevented the event from taking place again and the event was postponed a second time.
