SHOOTOUT @ OLD TUCSON ANNOUNCES RACE DATE CHANGE

Jan. 25, 2017 (DENVER, CO) -- SPEEDLEAGUE and Old Tucson Company, announced today they will move the Shootout at Old Tucson, a high-level, off-road action motorsport event toMay 6 & 7, 2017. The move is to avoid conflict with other events in the region that might have potentially prevented fans from enjoying the new signature event.

The Shootout will take place in Old Tucson, Arizona, an iconic wild west theme park and film location memorialized in over 400 movies, TV shows and other commercial projects. Following a year of discussions and planning, Speedleague and Old Tucson Company have formalized a three-year commitment to hold races annually through 2019.

The Shootout will feature some of the world's best drivers in short-course off-road racing trucks and UTVs competing on a challenging purpose-built dirt track, featuring large jumps and a section that runs through the iconic old west Main Street. Competitors will battle head-to-head in a series of exciting elimination heats throughout the weekend in order to advance to the final race on Sunday afternoon. The Tucson Mountain Park will provide a dramatic backdrop for athletes and fans alike. The two-day family-friendly, event will also offer a unique fan experience with driver autograph sessions, pit access where fans can rub elbows with the stars, and a Saturday night concert.
