Kahne Takes on Schatz in Friday's Outlaw Showdown
The stars of the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series and the South Eastern Crate Association are ready to converge on The Dirt Track at Charlotte for a Friday night fight on Carolina Clay. Friday's Outlaw Showdown marks the World of Outlaws' first of two visits to Charlotte's high-speed, four-tenths-mile oval this season in what promises to be a thrilling preview of the unforgettable action coming Nov. 1-3 in the World of Outlaws World Finals.
In addition to a star-studded field of Outlaw drivers looking to capture a piece of glory at one of dirt racing's most spectacular venues, the race will also feature a three-time Coca-Cola 600 winner gunning for victory. Kasey Kahne will go for a fourth win in NASCAR's toughest test of man and machine on Sunday - but on Friday, Kahne will take on points leaders Donny Schatz, Kasey Kahne Racing driver Brad Sweet and David Gravel in a bid for his first Outlaw win of the season. The Enumclaw, Washington, native has two top-10 finishes in five Outlaw starts this year.
