Rising Flood Waters Force World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars to Cancel Next Week’s Race at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55

U.S. Army Corp of Engineers projects river levels to surpass flood stage this week near Pevely


PEVELY, Mo. — April 19, 2013 — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects rising river levels will prevent the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series from being able to compete on Saturday, April 27, at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55.

The river is expected to be nearly 10 feet above flood stage and the track, which sits near Mississippi River tributaries just south of St. Louis, is susceptible to flooding. Flood waters are projected to recede quickly, but not in time for next week’s event.

The race will not be rescheduled. The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Cars will return to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 for the two-day Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 on Aug. 2-3.

Tonight’s race at Paducah International Raceway also was postponed because of rain. The series will be in action Saturday night at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., and again on Friday, Aug. 26, at the Salina (Okla.) Highbanks.

Fans with tickets to the cancelled race next Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway can apply their tickets toward tickets for the Federated Auto Parts Ironman 55 in August. Ticketholders with questions can call the World of Outlaws ticket hotline at 877-395-8606, or click WorldofOutlaws.com/tickets.
