New Non-Wing Pavement Sprint Car Tour to Debut in 2022

Officials from Anderson Speedway (Anderson, Indiana) have announced a partnership with veteran sprint car promoter Tom Hartsell to launch the 500 Sprint Car Tour, which will include 10 races in 2022. All events will feature non-wing pavement sprint cars competing for a championship.

Anderson Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway (Brownsburg, Indiana) will host three events each, while two races will take place at Berlin Raceway (Marne, Michigan). Two additional tracks will be announced to round out the schedule.

With the goal to strengthen pavement sprint car racing in the Midwest, the 500 Sprint Car Tour builds on the history and tradition of the Little 500 sprint car race, a 74-year-old, 500-lap spectacle. The Tour will be managed by the team that runs the Little 500. 

In addition, Tom Hartsell, with more than 15 years of sprint car racing promotion experience, will serve as an advisor and public address announcer for the tour.

“The idea of starting a sprint car tour has been something we have considered for many years,” explained Jared Owen, Vice President of Operations at Anderson Speedway. “Finally, everything aligned, and we felt the series would be a great accompaniment to Anderson Speedway and the Little 500. We are excited to see the continued growth of pavement sprint car racing in the Midwest and throughout the country.”

All races will be broadcast live by the tour’s streaming partners.

Additional information will be announced in the coming weeks, and Tour officials will be on-hand at the 2021 PRI Trade Show, Dec. 9–11, in Indianapolis.
