Swindell Returning to 81 Speedway on Saturday for NCRA's Air Capital Shootout Inside Line Promotions - GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (March 24, 2015) - Sammy Swindell has a dominant track record at 81 Speedway. Swindell claimed the first five World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series races in the early 1980s at the 3/8-mile, semi-banked oval in Park City, Kan., where he will return for the first time in as long as he can remember this Saturday for the 5th annual Air Capital Shootout with the NCRA. "I've got some pretty good memories of being around there when I drove for LaVern Nance," he said. "I used to drive there quite a bit in the 1970s and 1980s. I wound up with quite a few fans and friends out there." Swindell will pilot a sprint car for Donnie Cooper on Saturday, which will mark Swindell's first winged sprint car race since last August when he announced his retirement from full-time racing. The duo was going to pair up for two races in Mississippi earlier this month, but the weekend was washed out by storms.
