The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series came out of its annual DIRTCar Nationals in the first week of February looking to race every weekend in the month instead of having a long break in between its first and second events.

Instead, due to unheard of weather conditions in the South and COVID restrictions in the West, the series was forced to move things around and haven’t been on the track since.

Today, the tour announced the addition of 10 more races to go along with the pair that was already announced for the weekend of March 12.

“A lot of work has gone into putting this revised schedule together, and I’m grateful to all the tracks that have graciously worked with us throughout this process,” World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Director Carlton Reimers said in a press release. “While we’re disappointed in not being able to get the Spring West Coast Swing in this year, I’m excited for the fans and drivers that we’re still able to present them with a full schedule of racing at great venues.”

The additions cover each and every weekend between March 5 leading up to the April 16 event at Lawton Speedway in Oklahoma.

Drydene even stepped up to sponsor the rescheduling of the missed Texas Two-Step from this week.

“I’m just excited we have found some great racetracks to fill in the dates of the West Coast Swing,” Brad Sweet said in the release. “I was looking forward to racing in front of my friends and family in California but just still too many restrictions to race in front of full crowds. It’s always tough this time of year with weather and other factors to get races in so thanks to the Outlaws and the promoters for taking these shows on such short notice. I hope to see many fans and I’m excited to get the NAPA Auto Parts #49 back on track.”

The tour will kick things off by returning to Volusia for a night before going to East Bay for the first time in over 30 seasons.

They’ll follow up the previously announced events at Magnolia and Revolution Park with the Texas Two-Step at Cotton Bowl, head to the Midwest for dates with U.S. 36 Raceway, Lake Ozark, and Pevely, and then a weekend in Indiana at Kokomo and Tri-State.
