"We are proud to announce this show as the culmination of years worth of negotiations to bring the best in the sprint car business all back together again at Port Royal Speedway," says PRS Promotions pointman and Port Royal promoter Steve O'Neal. "Port Royal has the greatest fans anywhere and they've really supported us and come back to us over the last three years as we all have worked together to make Port Royal the kind of venue that can now host the World of Outlaws again."
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the public Feb. 4 at www.WorldofOutlaws.com/tickets.
"Some of the most passionate sprint car fans anywhere in the world are in Pennsylvania, so we're looking forward to bringing the Outlaws back to Port Royal for the first time in 10 years," said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter.
