“It’s pretty awesome to have an Outlaw event at Cocopah,” said Tom Dalen, General Manager of Cocopah Speedway. “I grew up watching the Outlaws and have always said, ‘if you want to see the best show on dirt, you have to get to a World of Outlaws race’. The buzz around town has been great — we have a lot of interest in the race. We look forward to having the World of Outlaws in Yuma.”
