    World of Outlaws Late Model Series ‘Wild West Tour’ Gets Off To Wet Start On Tuesday At Independence Motor Speedway

    World of Outlaws Late Model SeriesRain Postpones Iowa Track’s First-Ever Tour Event To Mon., Aug. 8

    INDEPENDENCE, IA – July 12, 2011 – The World of Outlaws Late Model Series ‘Wild West Tour’ got off to wet start with the postponement of Tuesday night’s event at Independence Motor Speedway.

    Intermittent rain intensified into steady showers later in the afternoon, forcing co-promoters Cam Granger and Rick Hartzell to reschedule the three-eighths-mile oval’s first-ever WoO LMS program to Mon., Aug. 8. The race will now immediately follow the $50,000-to-win USA Nationals on Aug. 4-6 at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis.

    “We were ready for a great night of World of Outlaws racing at Independence but Mother Nature had other ideas,” said Hartzell, the husband of WoO LMS follower Jill George of Cedar Falls, Iowa. “Fortunately we were able to work with World of Outlaws officials to find a new date that fits well into the tour schedule, so we’ll regroup and try to build even more interest for August 8.”

    Tuesday marked the sixth weather-related postponement of a WoO LMS event during the rain-plagued 2011 season.

    The ‘Wild West Tour’ will continue with the 32nd annual NAPA Auto Parts ‘Gopher 50’ on Wednesday night (July 13) at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. The swing also includes events on Fri., July 15, at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D., and Tues., July 19, at Gillette (Wyo.) Thunder Speedway.
