What in the heck are the World of Outlaws? In an automotive context, one might envision something with big horsepower, crazy drivers and a general lack of what some may think of as common sense. If this is what you were thinking, you’re not far off. The World of Outlaws is an oval track series whose competitors drive open wheel cars with big wings and roughly 700hp. Oh, and by the way, they run on a dirt track.
I’ve seen this automotive specatcle twice in my life, but both times the races took place south of the border in Ransomeville, NY, and both races were over a decade ago. Tonight this group of power crazy drivers square off at Oshweken Speedway in Brantford, Ontario. While Brantford is not exactly high on my list of ‘must visit’ places, you can bet I’ll be there. With any luck, I’ll be able to hear tomorrow and I won’t be covered in mud. For more info on the World of Outlaws, visit http://www.worldofoutlaws.com/sprint/
