World of Outlaws Race Car

If you have never had the opportunity to take in a World of Outlaws race or have never been to a dirt track in the mid-west here is a video for you. It is an exhibition run of a World of Outlaws race car at the famed half mile dirt track at the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

We visited there this summer and just had to take in a race at this track that has seen its share of stars over the years. I had not visited for many decades but the racing has gotten better and the food was more than I expected but the highlight of the evening was seeing a World of Outlaw car hit the old dirt half mile at full song.

Oh what I would give to have this track in Middle Tennessee!

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.

  1. My boyfriend had several pictures of himself driving a sprint car in 2004 Oskaloosa Iowa Race. They were distroyed and we are trying to find someone who might know who took the photos or anyone who may have known the owner. The Owner was a BIG guy named Steve Mitchell and my boyfriend was his driver, Chris Miller. If you have any ideas or know anyone we might contact we would appreciate your help. He had alot of fun and the pictures he had were all he had. One he is standing right by the car. Something about X car. Hes not here right now for me to ask what the X ment if it was the sprint car he drove or what. Guess he did pretty good at that race. He loves talking about it. He tried to Find Steve and as told that he was deceased. Thank you for any help. We thought if we could find out who took the pictures we could get some copies. I also was involved in the races, Dont know if you know of it Olympia Stadium in Kansas City and I-70 in think in Odessa. My ex and I were friends with Pappy Weld and all his sons. The Morgans used to take alot of the pictures back then. I was a trophey girl at the races once, my ex still has that picture. Thank you again. You can reach Chris or I at 816-872-8269. These werent famous races but a whole lot of fun. Thanks Chris and Brenda
