Racing will return to Iowa in May, but without fans.
The World of Outlaws announced plans Tuesday to host a NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race on Friday, May 8 at Knoxville Raceway. One week later, on May 15, the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series is scheduled to race at Boone Speedway.
Neither event will allow spectators, but can be viewed live on DIRTVision.
The late model series’ Hawkeye 100 at Boone Speedway remains postponed and the series is hopeful to reschedule the event. The upcoming Brownell’s Big Guns Bash in June at Knoxville Raceway featuring World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car remains on the series schedule.
