Kyle Larson and Brad Sweet have announced the creation of a new dirt series for sprint cars in 2023. The High Limit Sprint Car Series will include 12 races, with all scheduled for midweek so as not to compete with other series.
Events will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights, and races will be streamed live by FloRacing. Two of the 12 High Limit races will pay $50,000 to win, while the rest will pay out $23,000 to the winner. An end-of-the-year championship fund totaling $120,000 also is included.
Larson and Sweet are expected to compete, and hope to attract other top 410 sprint car drivers.
“Our mission is to help sprint car racing become bigger and better,” said Larson in a statement released by the series. “The High Limit Sprint Car Series will not only create more opportunities for sprint car drivers to race mid-week shows for big money but also give dirt track fans more great racing to attend.”
While dates and venues for the inaugural 2023 season will be announced later, a special kick-off event—the High Limit Open—will take place August 16 at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana.
