In the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series last visit to Red River Valley Speedway in 2012, three-time series champion Sammy Swindell was victorious. Swindell started on the pole and led early, before Chad Kemenah took the top spot on the ninth lap. Swindell would re-take the lead with just eight laps remaining to earn his seventh-career A-Feature win at the track.

Donny Schatz, who calls Fargo home, has won four times at the track, including winning both nights of the 2006 “Duel in the Dakotas.” Schatz has won at least once at every track in his home state that the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series has competed it. He raced with the Outlaws for the first time at Red River Valley Speedway as a teenager in 1993, finishing 15th.

Battling Schatz in 2017 is a talented group of full-time competitors, including 2013 series champion Daryn Pittman, Brad Sweet, who is Pittman’s teammate at Kasey Kahne Racing, Joey Saldana, who driving for a new team co-owned by NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in 2017, David Gravel, who finished a career-best third in points last year, Shane Stewart, who won eight A-Feature races last season, Jason Johnson, the reigning Knoxville Nationals winner and veteran drivers Jason Sides, Paul McMahan and Greg Wilson.

Young drivers Logan Schuchart, Jacob Allen and Clyde Knipp are all set to hit the road again in 2017, as is rookie contender Brent Marks from Pennsylvania.

JUST ANNOUNCED: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Return to Red River Valley Speedway in 2017

JUST ANNOUNCED: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars Return to Red River Valley Speedway in 2017

By Mike Spieker

WEST FARGO, N.D. (December 8, 2016) – In 2016 Jake Bitker and Nick Skalicky revived Red River Valley Speedway and brought back weekly racing to one of the country’s most historic dirt tracks. In 2017 Bitker and Skalicky are taking things one step further. They have inked a deal with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, which will bring the country’s premier dirt track touring series back to Red River Valley Speedway (RRVS) on Saturday, June 17th, 2017.

“The race fans will see a fantastic show, I believe,” said Skalicky. “It’s pretty exciting. The World of Outlaws have a long history with Red River Valley Speedway and we are happy we can keep that going.”

The 2017 date will come nearly five years to the day when the World of Outlaws (WoO) last visited the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in June of 2012, which was the first WoO show on the newly reconfigured and racy three-eighths mile oval. During time trials of that event a new track record was set by Brownsburg, Indiana’s Joey Saldana with a blistering time of 12.566 seconds, averaging 107.402mph.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what the drivers think of the track. We’ve made some changes to turn four over the offseason,” continued Skalicky. “I’m interested to see what kind of crowd we get, too. The Outlaws always bring in a lot of people so I think it’s going to be a pretty big night.”

Along with the WoO, the event will be co-sanctioned with the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association (NOSA), the regional 410c.i. Sprint Car series. When the NOSA Sprints competed at RRVS last July, 33 Sprint Cars were checked in for the Red River Valley Fair special. As of now, there are 14 confirmed drivers that will compete full-time on the WoO tour, combine that with other regional Midwest drivers and there is potential for a great field of cars and talent.

Despite being just the second date for the WoO in eight years at RRVS, the return of the “Greatest Show on Dirt” will mark their 31st appearance at the West Fargo dirt track, dating back to 1981.

A support class for the event is still to be determined.

Stay tuned for ticket pricing and information.

Red River Valley Speedway will be hitting the ground running in 2017 and plans to announce its complete 2017 weekly schedule around the new year.
