1 MONTH ALERT: Ironman 55 Weekend Pumps Up Excitement For World of Outlaws, Xtreme Outlaw Midgets

Drivers and fans will be treated to the biggest Ironman 55 yet at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in August with the largest purse in event history.

Between two days of racing, Aug. 2-3, more than $180,000 will be on the line for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota. That’s highlighted by Saturday’s Features paying $25,000-to-win for the World of Outlaws and $7,500-to-win for the Midgets.

Friday’s Feature will pay out $12,000-to-win/$1,200-to-start for the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars and $4,000-to-win/$300-to-start for the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets.

Both nights will also count toward the Xtreme Outlaw-POWRi Challenge Series title – awarding $2,500 to the Series champion at the end of the year – as POWRi will co-sanction the event with Xtreme.

Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is home to some of the most iconic moments in Sprint Car racing, such as Sheldon Haudenschild’s dominating performance in 2019 where he won by over 10 seconds, Kyle Larson’s sub-10 second qualifying lap and Larson’s intense duel with Logan Schuchart last year.

The Xtreme Outlaw Midgets have produced a “new flavor of the week” vibe with every race at I-55, producing five different winners in their five trips there.
