Real lack of Indiana/Michigan/Illinois on the schedules. Lots of interesting tracks added onto both though where big time touring sprint cars haven't been seen in awhile.

Maverick Winged Sprints should be running some Indiana tracks with minimum $6K to win 410 racing. In addition to the FAST/High Limit alliance in Ohio.
 
So far we know of 2 full time teams Brad, and Jacob Allen in the Shark 1A though the 1s will will stay with the Outlaws
 
Here the schedules side by side. Interesting they only overlap 33 dates out of 60 for High Limit and 89 for the Outlaws. Plus some random other data I threw in.

Big hit for Ohio too. Last year there were 19 ASCOC races next year only 6 HL.

Attica and Fremont already have a "series" running at those tracks. Close by Findlay plans to open in 2024 and they have promoter connections to Fremont, so they could expand next year to include Findlay. Doesn't seem out of the question that for 2025 a series would expand and include other Ohio tracks where sprints run frequently like Wayne County, Sharon, Portsmouth, Waynesfield, Atomic, Lima and even Eldora. Seems like a pretty good sprint car market.
 
Kasey has tried to be full-time WoO for a couple years, and it doesn't happen. I hope he stays healthy and runs well. The series is going to need a serious title contender to compete with Sweet, and it will matter a lot whether they land one of the ~5-7 drivers in the nation that could possibly do it.

HL desperately needs Rico Abreu & Tyler Courtney full time, trying to think who else that isn’t PA.

Those were two I was thinking of, along with the possibility of stealing Macedo or Schatz. Marks would help. They need at least one. Two would really solidify the series' initial campaign.

Marks I don’t follow a lot but yeah I think he would be good with HL.

The World of Outlaws needs Donny Schatz’s in North Dakota and South Dakota even still quite a lot and other Northern areas.
 
I find it interesting “High Limit” 410 isn’t at the Las Vegas dirt track from a branding perspective.

Not trying to complain complain complain but there’s a few tracks that do really well (not sure on LVMS imo lol) that got left out and/or forced to chose with the streaming I’m sure.

What's interesting is each series races at a track that is SMI owned for their finale Outlaws at Charlotte and High Limit at Texas. I would say they would be concerned with car count at Vegas.

That’s strange to me because they were getting 40+ cars in the pits when they were there. NARC doesn’t get much credit in the industry for whatever reason.

My only thought is that there is a timing issue there with the west coast swing. They're short on time between Knoxville and Thunderbowl, and then again short on time between Skagit and Port Royal. On top of that, they get to California in August, which is not the best time to be running a race outdoors in Las Vegas. If they had a West Coast swing in the spring when the Outlaws are in the deep south, I think then LVMS' dirt track could have worked it's way in. A big money show the same week as the NASCAR event seems like a natural fit: maybe in future years? Just has to make sense against the alternatives.

If they could get Buddy Kofoid in the second Roth car along with Zeb Wise and those two, that would be a strong lineup probably equivalent to what the Outlaws are putting on track on an average night. I'm also sort of interested to see who winds up taking the position of High Limit's Bill Rose.

Just want to also say that when you increase the money across the board like this, you make the venture of racing a wing 410 more worthwhile for folks and not just a passion project. Maybe it doesn't come to pass in year 1, but I would expect in future years that we're gonna see people who we don't necessarily think of making the transition to these series, or see drivers who maybe hadn't been full time with the Outlaws recently or ever make the jump. Tanner Thorson, for example, ran 11 wing shows this year. From the 360 ranks, Sam Hafertepe Jr. ran 79 races this year, mostly in 410s. Blake Hahn ran the ASCS schedule before as a multiple time champ and has been talking about going up to being full time with the Outlaws or High Limit. Ryan Timms seems destined for winged cars.

They had the Spring Showdown race on Wednesday/Thursday night of the LVMS NASCAR spring weekend for years and years which made the whole week a great event.

That weekend needs WoO or High Limit back. High Limit has a bit of a gap in their spring schedule.
 
Accidentally put this in Outlaws


They sure are raiding a lot of the WoO staff. Raudman was excellent with the Outlaws, but as a pit reporter, not an announcer. It will interesting to hear what style he develops. He takes the sport very seriously and gathers a lot of data.
 
Big hit for Ohio too. Last year there were 19 ASCOC races next year only 6 HL.

No Attica boggles my mind for HL
 
Still no one who will seriously challenge Sweet for the title in my opinion Wise maybe the strongest
 
Yeah that should be a good one
People were convinced that a split in sprint cars was bad. I'm convinced of the opposite. I grew up watching pro wrestling in the 90s and remember the Monday Night Wars as though it were a real geopolitical event instead of fake fighting. This is more like that except that several times a year, pretty much exclusively at the absolute biggest races in sprint car racing, the two sides will compete against one another heads up with huge pride, fan bases, crowds, money, network prestige, all that on the line. I don't think it's possible for sprint car racing to explode into a mainstream thing (my wife is perhaps first to remind me of this) but we could be looking at a golden age.
 
That's what the series needed badly. One of those handful of guys that is an actual threat to Sweet. They didn't have it and got it. Big deal.
 
Sweet, Larson and Rico racing for the big money in the weekday races are going to be barn burners.
