Four States, 11 Tracks For POWRi WAR Sprints

BELLEVILLE, Ill. – The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car Series schedule for the upcoming season features action in four states at 11 events from April through September.

The season will open on April 2-3 with the third annual Non-Wing Nationals as part of Lake Ozark Speedway’s Spring Nationals. The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League will then head to Arkansas to compete at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., as part of the Little Rock Nationals.

Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo., will host the most POWRI Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League appearances with five dates scheduled. Of those, the most notable being night one of the Missouri Open Wheel Showdown Weekend on April 23, a two-day event with the POWRi Lucas Oil Midget Leagues July 16-17, and King of Kansas City on Aug. 7.

I-70 Motorsports Park will serve as host on April 30-May 1 as the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars and the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League roll into town. As a support class for the World of Outlaws feature event, I-70 Motorsports Park officials have established that POWRi WAR will be restricted to only accepting the top-24 members in points heading into the event weekend. In the case that the top-24 cannot accept the invitation, WAR officials will continue down the series standings until a full field of 24 competitors is confirmed.

Central Missouri Speedway and Charleston Speedway will both be back on the schedule next year by popular demand. Central Missouri Speedway will host the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League on May 15. Charleston Speedway will prepare for a trio of traditional sprint car racing events, including the ILLI-ANA Showdown with the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League on May 21-22. Then again, paired with a racing weekend on June 11-12 that will also see non-winged sprint car racing at Spoon River Speedway.

Missouri State Fair Speedway will return to the series schedule with a pair of special events on the historic half-mile, beginning on July 29 alongside the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions, then again during the Missouri State Fair Race on Sunday, Aug. 22.

Knoxville Raceway will host the Corn Belt Nationals on July 10 in a co-sanctioned event featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League and USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series.

Lake Ozark Speedway will host a two-day show on July 23-24 alongside the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions on July 23-24.
