World of Outlaws fans have something to look forward to after a strange 2020. Officials have released the 2021 schedule for the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series. With a confirmed 55 races at 33 tracks across 16 states and the potential of more coming, next year’s schedule is the largest in the series’s 20-year history.
Officials also announced an upgraded standard purse that pays $10,000-to-win, $2,000-for-tenth, and $1,000-to-start.
“This is without a doubt our biggest release in World of Outlaws Late Models history,” Series Director Casey Shuman stated on the 2021 lineup. “We listened to our guys this year and tried to deliver what they wanted looking ahead to 2021. We’ve added more money than ever and picked up some pretty cool special events, which I think have a lot of potential. It’s going to be an exciting year that’s for sure. I’m ready to get the ball rolling and see what we can make happen.”
Volusia Speedway Park opens the calendar in January with the Sunshine Nationals, a trio of shows set for January 14-16. Three weeks later, on February 10-13, the Outlaws are back at the Barberville, Florida-based half-mile for four consecutive nights to conclude the DIRTcar Nationals.
Highlighted by 10 special events paying $20,000-to-win or more, the 2021 schedule features four Crown Jewel events: the $20,000 Illini 100 at Farmer City (Illinois) Raceway on April 2-3; the $30,000 Firecracker 100 at Lernerville (Pennsylvania) Speedway on June 24-26; the $50,000 Prairie Dirt Classic at Fairbury (Illinois) Speedway on July 30-31; and the $50,000 USA Nationals at Cedar Lake (Wisconsin) Speedway on Aug. 5-7.
