BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Performance Open Wheel Racing Inc. is launching the POWRi Desert Winged Sprint Car Series presented by MVT Services next season.
Established as a way to bridge the gap between the hometown heroes and the regional racing superstars, the POWRi POWRi Desert Winged Sprint Car Series will feature a limited number of events focused on quality over quantity, with a variety of two-day shows scheduled to make travel worth the paycheck.
While the series schedule has not been completed, several events have been confirmed. Repeat visits to Canyon Speedway Park will bookend the season, with race dates to be determined in April and October.
Aztec Speedway and Vado Speedway Park are both scheduled weekends of speed as Vado Speedway Park will host a pair of dual events on May 29-30 and Sept. 5-6 with Aztec Speedway planning for June 11-12 as well as Aug. 20-21. Fairgrounds Speedway in Colorado will mark the mid-way point of the race season as the hosting venue on July 2-3.
“We are looking forward to building a series that will be both a proving ground and stepping stone for the up-and-coming racers but also providing a place for your average weekend warrior to feel like they are competing on a big stage,” said series promotor Chad Tenski. “Ultimately, the series goal is to provide the tracks with a product they will look forward to putting in front of a packed house and give the racers a fair option of competition.”
The POWRi Desert Winged Sprint Car Series presented by MVT Services will feature a $20,000 point fund, with a winner’s share of $4,000 while paying out through the top-20 finishers in the point standings.
