Delmar, DE…..The Outlaws are here tonight on the ½ mile clay circle at the Delaware International Speedway. The speedway is located on the grounds of the Delaware Motorsports Complex in Delmar, DE. The complex is one mile north of MD-DE state line, only 50 mins. from Dover & the Beaches. The World of Outlaws Late Models (WoOLMS) return tonight for the “Fulton Bank 50”. The touring late models make one trip to Delaware a race season and take the green for 50 laps.
Tonight they return to the clay. The track has added new clay this year and the speeds have been fast so far. The promoter/owner Charlie Cathell has his crew in tip top shape for tonight and worked vigorously getting the track just right.
The outlaws are one event at the speedway that fans love to see. There’s nothing else like them. The power you feel when the feature starts, of all those stock cars lined up, just floods with the power right through your body.
Its not to late to make the show tonight, tickets are still on sale and at the track. This is one event not to miss. Tonight the Little Lincoln Vintage Stock Car Club will be the pre-race before the outlaws put on their show. Gate opens at 5PM with warm-ups at 7PM. Adult general admission just $26, children 7-13 $5 (0-6 yrs free); adult reservation $30, child $9, adult pit admission only $35, child $10.

On a sad note we lost the wife (Juanita), of the founder Wm. J. Cathell who preceded in death and the mother of the current operators Charlie, Hal Cathell and Dawn Brown on April 29, 2012. Juanita will be missed by all that loved her. The Cathell Family would like to thank everyone for all their cards, thoughts and prayers in our recent loss of one of the precious people there ever was. I know I will surely miss her very much!
