Kyle Larson, Brad Sweet Launch New Sprint Car Series

Kyle Larson, Brad Sweet Launch New Sprint Car Series | THE SHOPNASCAR driver Kyle Larson has partnered with World of Outlaws Series Champion Brad Sweet to launch a new sprint car series in 2023, the new High Limit Sprint Car Series announced.

The new series will feature a 12-race schedule with mid-week races paying as high as $50,000-to-win.

High Limit will feature Larson and other top 410 sprint car drivers, the series said. Of the 12 events, two marquee events are planned to feature a $50,000-to-win and $140,000 total purse. The other ten events will pay $23,000-to-win and $80,000 in total purse. Plus, the series offers an end of the year points fund totaling $120,000.

FloRacing will provide live streaming coverage of the High Limit Sprint Car Series, which will compete at dirt track venues across the United States on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday nights, the series said.

“Our mission is to help sprint car racing become bigger and better,” said Larson. “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. They can watch live or on-demand too, thanks to FloRacing. I’m very excited to get it started.”

While dates and venues for the inaugural 2023 season will be announced at a later date, a special kick-off event – the High Limit Open – will take place on Aug. 16 at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, the series said. The High Limit Open will offer a $70,000 total event purse with $22,022-to-win.
