Sidewinder Sprints were established in 2007
with the thought of creating a class that
reduced/contained costs and would be equally
at home on the smaller (1/8 mile) or larger
(1/2 mile) tracks. What started off as a
basic 600cc micro chassis with a 1000cc
engine installed, it quickly became apparent
that a niche market existed between micro’s
and full size sprints where the average
working man could still afford to race. The
rules were developed to include the larger
13” wheels and 16 square foot wings and also
the upright chassis for those wanting more
of a full size sprint car feel.
The engines can be either a stock 1000cc engine or
for those that like to tinker, an unlimited less
than 760cc engine. With a hard spec tire and limit
on cockpit adjustables, the weekly racing costs are
In 2012 every combination of chassis, wheels, wings
and engines visited victory lane proving the success
of the rules and race format package.
Since our inception, we have constantly strived to
provide the most cost effective winged sprint car
racing and realize that the towing costs and pit
fees have become the biggest expense in our racing
budgets. In another attempt to add more racing for
your dollar, 2013 will see the Sidewinders using a
twin feature format with a finish/passing points
matrix to determine the nights finishing order for
points and payout. We reduced the schedule to 21
points races, but the innovative twin feature format
has increased the teams opportunities by giving
teams 42 feature chances to earn a victory.
Susquehanna - Rain takes it 2nd for the year.
With the colder winter temps seemingly behind us,
the Sidewinder teams were eager to get back to the
high speed Susquehanna and try out the two feature
format on the Susky red clay. Without warning a
small pop up rain cell appeared at the critical
track preparation time. Unfortunately, despite the
best efforts of the track team, the high humidity
and lower temperatures put a stop to their efforts.
All Sidewinder teams that signed in received their
50 “rainout points”.
