    Figured I'd get a thread for the World Of Outlaws going, their season started last night with a bang as Brad Sweet beat KKR Teammate Daryn Pittman by .074 seconds on night one at Volusia! The race also saw the end of a 170+ race DNFless streak by the defending champion Donny Schatz after he blew the engine while sitting in 3rd on lap 20.

    Really good way to start the season. Woke up just in time to watch the SC feature and was not disappointed.

    Not strictly a WoO event, but the annual Knoxville Nationals are starting tonight! Hope no one gets hurt and there's good clean racing! Here's my seat for all four nights

    Nice, thats almost the same view I had back in 09 when I ventured out there for the 5 days. Great action despite the severe weather and sleeping in a less than ideal tent in said storms ha

    Nice. I haven't missed a race here in 10 years, since it's only a half hour drive. Sat in the same seats ever since. I remember 09, that wasn't very fun with all the rain. We barely dodged the rain tonight. So far the track's looking good!

    Great racing! Good battle between Shane Stewart and Donny Schatz. Stewart held him off and won the thing! Not a single flip tonight, fantastic overall. Hope nothing changes the next few days. Especially the Schatz finishing second part *lol*

    Amazing racing tonight! Only one yellow all night and a great battle at the end of the B. Saldana and Sweet were going at it for the lead and Saldana tried to cut him off and almost spun the thing but saved it and ended sixth. That let David Gravel catch and it was a great photo finish, in favor of Sweet! And that's only the B!!! A main about to push off.

    First caution with 10 to go...

    Fantastic tributes to Bryan Clauson tonight. Ricky stenhouse jr. paced the field in the car Bryan would have driven, and the car was then pulled into victory lane.

    A main about to start. Had our first rollover tonight, driver was okay. Great racing once again, mother nature has been nice to us. Aubreu starts on the pole, hoping he can win it!

    Abreu won! Kraig Kinser takes the World Challenge and is a lock in the main event! Hoping the track stays how it is, right now it's a 3 lane track. Also hoping for a non-Schatz winner *lol*

    Well... things just got crazy. We had three normal days, then tonight
    in the D main, a car flipped over the fence for the first time in 15 years. RJ Johnson is okay. He took a billboard with him.
