The first stop will happen on Friday July 2nd at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City Indiana. The Gas City Non Wing Sprints are some of the most competitive in the country, and the drivers are chomping at the bit to grab the $1500 payday and guaranteed spot in the Hewitt Classic to get the chance to battle for supremacy against the best Non Wing drivers Waynesfield Raceway Park has to offer.

The next stop will take place next Saturday night July 3rd at Waynesfield Raceway Park. The feature event for the Lee’s Hydraulics Non Wing Sprints will pay $1500 to win. More importantly, the winner will receive a guaranteed starting spot in the 2nd Annual Jack Hewitt Classic on August 7th.

Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in Rossburg Ohio will serve as the next to last stop on the Road to the Hewitt Classic on Saturday July 31st.

The Non Wing Sprint Cars will take to the clay oval at Millstream and battle for a top prize of $2500 to win. The winner will also get the 4th and final guaranteed starting spot for the 2nd Annual Jack Hewitt Classic at Waynesfield Raceway Park.
