TUCSON, Ariz. – The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will invade Arizona on March 21-22 for an action-packed doubleheader weekend.

The winged warriors of the Outlaw field will bring a 900-horsepower thrill ride to race fans in Tucson during the Wildcat Shootout at USA Raceway, as well as in San Tan Valley for the Arizona Desert Shootout at Arizona Speedway.

Reigning champion Brad Sweet, of Grass Valley, Calif., earned his first victory of 2019 at USA Raceway en route to his first series title. It was also his second win at the three-eighths-mile track, tying 2013 champion Daryn Pittman for the most wins at the raceway.

With a win at Volusia Speedway Park already this season, ‘The Big Cat’ will be on the prowl for back to back wins in Arizona.

David Gravel won his first race at Arizona Speedway last year, becoming the fourth different winner in-a-row at the third-mile track.

Gravel returns to Jason Johnson Racing for his second year, after a strong first season that saw the pair win 12 races, including the Knoxville Nationals.

Ten-time series champion Donny Schatz is currently the only driver on the World of Outlaws tour who has a win at both tracks.

Schatz kicked off the 2020 season with a win at Volusia Speedway Park, bringing himself closer to a milestone 300 career wins by earning his 295th series victory.

Both Arizona events will pay $10,000-to-win and are sure to produce high-octane action among the stars of the World of Outlaws.

Three drivers – Sweet, Pittman and Schatz – are multi-time winners in the state of Arizona when it comes to the two tracks
