Mississippi Thunder Speedway: Still plenty of tickets available for weekend's World of Outlaws

Mississippi Thunder Speedway hosts the Baehman Law Redneck 100 Challenge

Plenty of racing action takes place during the Baehman Law Redneck 100 Challenge at Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wisconsin, on Friday, June 12th, 2020.

There is still time if you have yet to secure tickets for this weekend's Dairyland Showdown at Mississippi Thunder Speedway. 

Although online ticket sales closed on Saturday, there are still tickets left as the "NASCAR of dirt track racing" World of Outlaws Late Model Series make their MTS debut Friday and Saturday. 

"There are still plenty of tickets available," track promoter Tyrone Lingenfelter said. "The weather is supposed to be good, upper 50s, lower 60s and this is a chance to see some of the best in the sport."

Tickets can be bought at the gate. 

Those that get tickets will be treated to an event that is unprecedented at MTS.
