High Limit Sprint Car Series owners Brad Sweet and Kyle Larson released their much-anticipated 2023 schedule Thursday, with many of America’s favorite sprint car racing venues included. The 2023 schedule will see the 12-race series begin with a non-point race at Tulare, California’s Thunderbowl Raceway in March and conclude at Indiana’s Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Ind. in October. Ten states are represented in the inaugural running of the series, with the stated goal of adding high-dollar events to the annual racing calendar.

“I’m sure a lot of fans and racers might be surprised that our first High Limit Sprint Car Series date is at Tulare’s Thunderbowl Raceway, and it being held as a non-points race,” said Sweet. “Despite previously stating that we doubted the High Limit Series would be able to accommodate a west coast event in 2023, we have pivoted our thinking with an understanding that we should not limit our reach to only certain areas of the country, which we feel should help us grow our brand, and reach, more effectively. Also, with the decision of the national touring sprint car series to not contest any spring races in the Golden State in 2023, we believe the timing is right for a High Limit race to be held there at that time. We are hoping that many teams will head west for this race, or secure rides in California based cars, but we also understand that it may not be feasible for some, hence the reasoning behind our decision to make it a non-point event.”

After Tulare, the first point race on the schedule will be the season opener on Tuesday, April 11 at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. The event will be the first of two $50,000-to-win features on the schedule and is sure to attract the biggest names in the sport. Next up, the series will make its way to 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa for a $23,023-to-win race on Tuesday, April 25. The fourth event on the schedule will find the series competing at Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind. for another $23,023 payday on Tuesday, May 2.

The Buckeye State will see teams converge on Orrville, Ohio’s Wayne County Speedway on Tuesday, May 16 for a race that will see the winner’s pay raised to $32,023. The first Wednesday event of the year happens when the series visits Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Ill. on May 31 for another $23,023 payday. The High Limit series will head west once again as its next stop will be Tuesday, June 6 at Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb for an additional $23,023-to-win main event. 

A trip east will have the High Limit Sprint Car Series make its first stop in PA Posse country on Tuesday, July 25 with a visit to Bechtelsville’s Grandview Speedway for a $23,023-to-win race. Another turnaround sees the series head back west to South Dakota for a $23,023-to-win race at Huset's Speedway on Tuesday, August 15. The second and final $50,000-to-win special event is slated for a Pennsylvania return as Sarver’s Lernerville Speedway plays host on Tuesday, September 26. 

Autumn sees the final two events at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, NJ on Tuesday October 3, and Lincoln Park Speedway in Indiana closes out the schedule on Tuesday, October 10. Both contests pay $23,023 to win, and each should have a bearing on determining the first-ever champion of the High Limit Sprint Car Series.  

“I think we have put together a very diverse schedule that the teams and fans will look forward to,” said Sweet. “We have found that there are a lot of moving parts when trying to devise a schedule such as this, but we feel we have succeeded by including some of the best sprint car tracks in the country.”

Larson added, “I can’t wait to get started racing. These are some of my favorite tracks I’ve ever raced at, and I’m looking forward to getting back to some I haven’t seen for some time, while also competing at Lakeside for the first time. We believe the High Limit Sprint Car Series fits into the 2023 sprint car landscape very well and is going to be lucrative for the teams and fun for the fans. Brad and I can’t wait for it to get started.”
