The lights of Charlotte Motor Speedway will go dim Friday, May 25, as the action moves across the street to The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown. Known for providing The Greatest Show on Dirt, the stars of the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series will take to the four-tenths-mile clay oval for a 30-lap showdown in the heart of NASCAR country.

The Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown is part of Charlotte Motor Speedway’s 10 greatest days of racing, which are highlighted by the two biggest back-to-back events on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule - the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 19 and the Coca-Cola 600 on May 27.

Spectator gates open at 4:00 p.m. for the Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown and drivers will participate in the free autograph session from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. The first 1,000 fans to present a NOS Energy Drink from Circle K at the gate for the autograph party will receive a free limited-edition commemorative poster.

Opening ceremonies begin at 7:00 p.m. with the Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown 30-lap A-Main scheduled to start at 8:35 p.m. After the World of Outlaws sprint car feature is complete, the NDRA Crate Late Model Series will take to The Dirt Track at Charlotte for their $2,000-to-win feature event.
