The World of Outlaws and the DIRTvision production team worked with National Speed Sport News to produce eight hours of television, including shows from the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway (OH), the Prairie Dirt Classic at Fairbury American Legion Speedway (IL) — televised to a national audience for the first time ever — and the World of Outlaws World Finals presented by Can-Am at The Dirt Track at Charlotte (NC).
“We are thrilled to bring our events to a national audience through our continued partnership with CBS Sports Network,” said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. “The opportunity for these great events, including our season championship, to be nationally televised will allow dirt racing fans far and wide to enjoy the racing, even into the off season as we gear up for our two-week-long DIRTcar Nationals season opener at Volusia Speedway Park, February 5-16.”
CBS Sports Network will air eight, one-hour programs covering four World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series races and four World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series races. All events will air on Sundays at 7 p.m., with the exception of the first two — the Kings Royal broadcasts — which will air at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on October 21 and 28 respectively.
