World of Outlaws makes long awaited return trip to Terre Haute Action Track Wednesday


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – None of the top four drivers in the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championship standings has ever won at the Terre Haute Action Track, but there’s no doubt Donny Schatz, Daryn Pittman, Paul McMahan and Kerry Madsen will be trying to add their names to the track’s record book on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

On top of that, Indiana native Steve Kinser, who won four times in a row at the Indiana half-mile in 1993 and 1994, will be taking aim at one more Action Track win in his final season on the road with the World of Outlaws. The 20-time Outlaws champ is a native of nearby Bloomington, Ind.

Joey Saldana is the last Outlaws winner at the Action Track, taking the victory in 2006 in the series’ last appearance at the lightning fast track. He’s another Indiana native who wants to protect home turf.

“I can’t wait,’’ said Saldana, who has five wins and a series high 22 quick times this season. “I remember going there quite a bit when I was little because you had to unload in the infield. Growing up, I lived in the Terre Haute infield. It’s a great facility. We haven’t been there in a long time so hopefully it’s a sellout. It’s time to go back. I can’t wait to go back.’’

UMP modifieds will join the program on Sept. 17 and the following night, when USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car Series returns for the rescheduled Jim Hurtubise Classic.
