By Colby Gorniewicz, World of Outlaws PR (Concord, NC) -- The World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series returns to Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD for the Rushmore Outlaw Showdown on Friday, August 25 for the first time since 2011.
The Outlaws last visit at the semi-banked, 5/8th-mile oval came six years ago, however, the "Greatest Show on Dirt" has a very rich history at the Rapid City, SD Speedway, dating back to 1983. Donny Schatz, who has won the last three visits at the Speedway, will be aiming to add to his total and become the winningest Outlaw driver at the Black Hills Speedway.
