READY TO ROLL
The Volusia Speedway Park in Florida will be the site of the STP World of Outlaws Series’ season opener this weekend.
The stars and cars of the grueling series will be on hand Friday-Sunday, marking Steve Kinser’s last visit to the track as a full-time WoO competitor. After a couple of weeks off, the series gets rolling full tilt in early March with visits to the Las Vegas Dirt Track (March 5-6) then on to Tuscon, Ariz. (March 8). The rest of the month and through the second week of April will find the series tearing up the West Coast dirt tracks.
A complete schedule and ticket information to any of the WoO events can be found at www.worldofoutlaws.com.
The USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series will kick off its 2014 campaign Feb. 20-22 at the Bubba Raceway Park to close out Speed Weeks leading up to the annual running of the Daytona 500.
In the columns to come, there will be information on the different driver/owner combinations as well as some features on several of the drivers who are getting ready to embark on yet another season.
One big-time notable pairing will be featured in my next column.
