ImageWHAT
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series invades Ohio and Michigan this weekend for events on Friday, May 20, at Attica Raceway Park and Saturday, May 21, at I-96 Speedway.

Weather got the best of the Outlaws last year at Attica, but Jason Meyers captured the Rumble in Michigan for the second year in a row at I-96 Speedway. Meyers, the defending series champion who is still looking for his first victory of 2011, should be a contender this weekend as he competed at Attica once this season on a non-race weekend for the Outlaws, and his record at I-96 is impressive, finishing no worse than seventh in seven starts at the half-mile oval.

That leads to several questions to be answered this weekend: Will Meyers make it three in a row at I-96 Speedway? Can four-time champion Donny Schatz find Victory lane for the first time in 2011? Will hometown hero Chad Kemenah of Findlay, Ohio, use recent strong runs to propel himself into the winner's circle? Can World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series points leader Joey Saldana rebuild his lead after Steve Kinser closed the gap at Williams Grove Speedway this past weekend?

WHEN
On Friday, May 20 at Attica Raceway Park, the pit gates will open at 3:30 pm, with the grandstand gates opening at 4:00 pm, with racing set for 7:45 pm.
