The eighth annual World of Outlaws World Finals is a must-see event for dirt fans around the globe in its own right, but this Nov. 6-8, fans have an even bigger reason to attend the three-day dirt racing extravaganza. Twenty-time World of Outlaws champion Steve Kinser will wrap up his full-time racing career and conclude his year-long "Salute to the King" tour.
While many revelers are busy making last-minute Halloween costumes and sorting candy for eager trick-or-treaters, officials at Charlotte Motor Speedway are busy stringing lights and building Santa's Workshop in anticipation of the fifth annual Speedway Christmas holiday light show, which will light up the legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway in just three weeks.
All dirt roads lead to Charlotte as the nation's three premier dirt track series will come together to crown their champions Nov. 6-8 when The Dirt Track at Charlotte hosts the eighth annual World of Outlaws World Finals. The three-day dirt track extravaganza features the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series, the World of Outlaws Late Model Series and the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds. It's the only time during the season that the stars of the three nomadic series compete on the same nights at the same track.
When more than 150 competitors and thousands of fans return for the World of Outlaws World Finals, Nov. 6-8, they'll be welcomed with new North Carolina red clay at the lightning-fast, fourth-tenths-mile oval. Track officials resurfaced the facility over the summer in preparation for the three biggest nights on dirt to ensure more thrilling racing and improve track conditions.
