Fresh off an outstanding, inaugural season the Iowa Sprint League is preparing for an even bigger sophomore campaign. The tour recently announced their plans to join forces with the Performance Open Wheel Racing Incorporated (POWRi) sanctioning body for the 2020 season and beyond.
The Hawkeye State based tour now is now known as the POWRi Lucas Oil Iowa Sprint Car League. Series races for the upcoming year are strewn throughout the Midwest with events in Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois.
Over the past several seasons, the POWRi sanction has rapidly grown with several tours now falling under their banner.
In regards to their latest addition, POWRi’s Kenny Brown commented, “This will be a perfect opportunity for the Iowa Sprint Car League to continue to grow Non-Wing Sprint Car racing in the Heartland of the Midwest”
With the addition of the POWRi Lucas Oil Iowa Sprint Car League, there will now be two Non-Wing Sprint Cars champions crowned.
Iowa Sprint League director, Joe Leer noted, “This is what the racer’s asked for; it helps to grow the Iowa Sprint League as well as getting to race closer to home.”
On the heels of six wins in 2019, Kansas’ racer Wyatt Burks claimed the inaugural Sprint Car League championship. Chris Parkinson, Katlynn Leer, Riley Kreisel and Glen Saville completed the Top 5 in the final standings. A total of 60 drivers entered at least one event in 2019.
The full 2020 slate for the POWRi Lucas Oil Iowa Sprint Car League is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
