Welcome to the most exciting form of motorsports known to man! Yes .., we’re talking about 950-horsepower open wheel sprint cars battling wheel-to-wheel on a dirt oval track. To loyal racing fans, this exciting brand of racing has few peers in the world of motorsports. And rightfully so!
The NARC Fujitsu General USA Sprint Cars Series has been entertaining fans for more than six decades as the best sprint car teams in California do battle at dirt oval tracks throughout State. We have several great racing events and promotions lined up for you as we go on another quest to crown a “King of the West” champion.
For those of you new to the sport, most fans recognize sprint cars by two noteworthy characteristics – the billboard size aerodynamic wings that stabilize the cars at high-speed and the staggered tires that improve cornering ability. The wings work in reverse of an airplane wing and produce down force which helps the car get a grip on the racetrack. In addition, the wings improve stability of the car in the corners and allow sprint cars to generate laps times of less than 16 seconds on a half-mile oval. Did we mention that these cars only weight 1450 pounds fully loaded? To pilot one of these 410 c.i. fire-breathing machines requires not only bravery, but split-second aggressive decision making and driving skills that are just downright impressive.
We encourage you to catch up with the 2022 NARC Fujitsu General USA Sprint Car Series at a track near you between April 2nd and November 6th. Overall, our schedule features 25-racing events at 13 different venues in California, Oregon, and Washington.
