Welcome to SidewinderSprints.com!

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 the rules package including hard spec tires and limitations on cockpit adjusters, the weekly racing costs are contained.

There is no such thing as “cookie cutter” racing with Sidewinder Sprints as the teams get to choose the combinations that they like. As in previous seasons, 2013 saw every combination of chassis, wheels, wings and engines visit victory lane continuing to prove the success of the rules / 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. 2014 will see us continue to add more racing for your dollar as we once again utilize their unique twin feature format with a finish/passing points matrix to determine the nights finishing order for payout. Starting in 2014, your passing points will become your season championship points.

Our focus remains on continuing to have “fun” racing in the most cost effective sprint car racing in the world.  In 2014 our schedule will see us visit 5 different tracks for 23 points races and 2 non-wing / non points races. With twin feature every night the teams have the opportunity to visit victory lane 50 different times. You can’t beat that value !

Sidewinder Sprints – 2013 Championship Banquet
Halter takes the glory, Zielonis continues to impress.

The 2013 season saw our twin feature format being utilized for the first time. Fast from the first race was Rich Halter. This year Rich picked up an engine, straight from a motorcycle wreckers, changed the oil and went racing. The cost savings were not reflected in on track performance as his early season speed left many teams scratching their heads. The points tightened after Rich was involved in a vicious front straight impact that bent all 4 corners. With only 1 race to go, Rich had actually dropped to 2nd position however his tenacity in the final points race at Susquehanna was symbolic of his season and he made every lap count to take the Championship by a close 16.5 points. Heading into the last race, Mike Zielonis was the in-form driver and had clawed his way into 3rd. Mike would end up in 2nd position by a mere ½ a point ahead of Rohan Beasley.
