“Since we announced the Xtreme Outlaw Series earlier this month, the momentum has continued to build,” said Brian Carter, World of Outlaws and DIRTcar Racing CEO. “Drivers have already committed to run each series, now we’re continuing that momentum by announcing schedules and sponsorship, with more to come as interest in each division is at a very high level.”

The Xtreme Outlaw Midgets are set for 12 events with their series champion taking home $10,000. In efforts to work with existing sanctions bodies, the Series will closely follow POWRi/USAC rule books, with a few small changes.
