PAIGE, Texas – After opening the season in Florida, the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will compete in a Texas doubleheader, racing March 13 at Cotton Bowl Speedway and March 14 at Lone Star Speedway.

It will be the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series’ first time back at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas since 2018 and at LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas since 2017.

Reigning champion Brad Sweet has one of the best records at the three-eighths-mile Cotton Bowl Speedway. He won the series’ first race at the speedway in 2016 and finished second to David Gravel the next race in 2018. With a win at Volusia Speedway Park already this year, he’ll look to keep that success going with his Kasey Kahne Racing team in his quest for back to back championships.

The last time the Series raced at the third-mile Lone Star Speedway, 10-time series champion Donny Schatz took home the victory. After losing the 2019 championship by four points to Sweet, the Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing driver will be on the hunt to reclaim title. He’ll also be looking to claim his 300th win this year. Schatz also picked up a win in Florida, bringing him to 295 career World of Outlaws wins.

Danny Lasoski holds the track record at both tracks – 13.517 seconds at Cotton Bowl and 13.059 seconds at Lone Star Speedway. While he’s retired from racing, he’ll be back on the tour full-time in 2020 as mentor and crew chief for rookie contender Mason Daniel.

Both events will pay $10,000-to-win.
