Port Royal gets early March stop
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will again return to the Speedway in 2023 for the two-day Nittany Classic Oct. 6-7. However, for the first time ever, the series will visit the Speedway for an early March swing with a two-day show paying $10,000 to-win both nights on March 10-11.
The last time the World of Outlaws made a spring visit to Port Royal Speedway was May 27, 1987. The race was won by Doug Wolfgang.
In the Series’ last visit to the track, Anthony Macri swept the weekend to pick up his first two World of Outlaws victories.
Williams Grove hosts WoO seven times
For the first time since 2017, the Outlaws will make seven stops at Williams Grove Speedway in 2023. It’s the first-ever March race for the half-mile track.
Lance Dewease won three Outlaws races at the Grove in 2022, including the National Open. Brad Sweet ensured the Outlaws weren’t swept at Williams Grove last year winning one race.
Hometown Hero wins at Lincoln in 2022
The March 18th stop is the earliest in Lincoln’s Outlaws history. The previous earliest arrival was last year, May 11, when Jacob Allen of Hanover won, his first ever win at the track. The Shark Racing shop owned by his father, Bobby Allen, is just six miles from Lincoln Speedway.
World of Outlaws drivers have won the last three events at Lincoln, including Allen, Brad Sweet in 2021 and Sheldon Haudenschild in 2020.
BAPS Speedway on the schedule
For the first time in 30 years, the World of Outlaws will stop at BAPS Speedway in York Haven.

The Outlaws feature the best Sprint Car drivers in the world, and we are looking forward to having them and feel like we can provide a great show for the fans.”
The event will pay $10,000 to the winner. General admission for the event will be $35 for ages 13-over. Kids 12-under will be $10. Season seat holders will be honored.
