World of Outlaws races in to Davenport Speedway

Local News
The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Models series will make its seventh, eighth and ninth visit to the Davenport, Speedway track Thursday-Sunday, Aug. 26-28 for the Quad Cities 150 presented by Hoker Trucking .

Events will include full shows, such as the 40-lap, $10,000-to-win Morton Buildings Features each night. An “Every Lap Matters” format will be used for the weekend, meaning drivers will score points based on qualifying, heat races, and features. Those points will set the Drydene Heat Race lineups for Saturday’s 70-lap finale, paying $30,000-to-win.

Winning all three events could see one driver walk away with $50,000 in total.

The Quad Cities 150 is also a homecoming for Tyler Bruening and Ryan Gustin. The two Hawkeye state drivers are locked in the Battle for Rookie of the Year, as Gustin tries to cut down Bruening’s 102-point lead.

Both drivers have the chance to bring home state fans to their feet, as a win by either would be their first taste of World of Outlaws glory.  Last season, three-time and defending champion Brandon Sheppard swept all three events at the Iowa venue. That includes the battle between he and Ricky Thornton Jr. that ended in a photo finish.
