Due to growing concerns over the COVID-19 virus, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series has postponed all events through April 9.

“This decision has not been made lightly, and while everyone in our sport wants to race, we believe this is the right decision given the traveling nature of our Series and the local makeup of our events,” series officials said in a press release. 

“The Series will continue to monitor the situation as it develops, and provide additional information at a later date. The health and safety of our community is our top priority.”

The race postponements will affect races at Cotton Bowl Speedway in  Paige, Texas, LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas, USA Raceway in Tuscon, Airz., Arizona Speedway in San Tan Valley, Airz., Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, Calif., Santa Maria Speedway in Sanat Maria, Calif., and Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. 

Updates on the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series, which is not scheduled to compete until March 27, will be provided by the series at a later date.
