Happy Birthday World of Outlaws Champion Sammy Swindell!

It was 57 years ago this October 26 that Samuel Alan “Sammy” Swindell, World of Outlaws champion, was born in Bartlett, Tennessee. Now, well past the age that most cops and firefighters retire to get by on just 80% of their salary, Swindell still hits the dirt track strapped into his open-air, 350 horsepower car just as he did when he was winning races as one the most successful World of Outlaws sprint-car racers in the United States.  

Over the years, Sammy has won hundreds of A-main races and won the overall title in 1981, 1982, and 1997. He has also raced in the Indy and NASCAR circuits.
