At A Glance: The Outlaws Take on the Oil City Cup
CONCORD, NC - The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series heads north of the border this weekend for the series' final trip to Canada in 2015. The annual Oil City Cup at Castrol Raceway showcases two days of racing action in Edmonton, Alberta. As the series takes on Castrol, a tight battle for the third through sixth place positions in the championship standings is shaping up. Just 84 points separate the four positions as all four of those drivers are hitting their stride in the season. Sitting third in points, Kerry Madsen picked up his first win of the 2015 season last week in Nebraska. Madsen and his team have had steady consistency through the year that helped lift them to the top of the standings. He holds off Joey Saldana, who has two wins and is the season's leading qualifier with 13 quick time awards, in fourth. Just 13 points back from Saldana is Brad Sweet who has one more win but fewer top-five finishes than the No. 71m team. Paul McMahan, 40 points back from Sweet, enters the weekend after leading laps at both River Cities and Nodak and scoring podium finishes. The battle continues this weekend in Alberta.
