Colorado Sprint Car fans have a new reason to be excited. The POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League is set to make its debut in 2019. The Non-Wing Sprint Car Series brings exciting racing to the fans. Simultaneously, it offers teams and racers an affordable and competitive new option.
Based on the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League that has blossomed to national acknowledgment, the newly-formed POWRi Lucas Oil Warrior Sprint League will take on a similar model in hopes of establishing a booming Sprint Car scene in Colorado.
The new series is being spearheaded by racing veteran, Joe Bellm. The Denver entrepreneur is also the driving forced behind BST Promotions. His organization helps promote racing throughout Colorado and the accompanying states.
“There has been a big desire for Non-Wing Sprint Car racing in Colorado for quite some time,” noted POWRi Warrior Sprints Director, Joe Bellm. “We have seen the growth that leagues like WAR have experienced under the POWRi sanction and thought that this is perfect timing to bring this form of racing back to a state that is thirsting for it. I have already had several racers that have been out for nearly 5-10 years express their renewed interest in the league.
“Our main goal here is to eliminate the dollar factor, take off the wings, equalize the competition, and in turn promote the exciting level of racing that is non-wing sprint cars, which I believe offers the best bang for your buck.”
The Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association (RMMRA) and Rocky Mountain Lightning Sprint Association (RMLSA) already fall under the POWRi sanction. To make things convenient for racers, they will be allowed to use one license to compete in events with all three tours.
The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League makes its debut on April 27 at El Paso County Raceway (Calhan, Colorado). Currently there are 15 events schedule for the tour this year at three different venues, including I-76 Speedway (Fort Morgan, Colorado) and Phillips County Raceway (Holyoke, Colorado).
The series also be part of the annual Jesse Hockett/ Daniel McMillin Race at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri) on September 19-21. While the event be a non-points race, the tour will get one provisional for the finale.
