INDIANAPOLIS (December 22, 2017) – The Lucas Oil POWRi/WAR Sprint Car Series will lay claim to a new state this coming February after aligning a fresh partnership with Wildcat Raceway in Tuscon, Arizona to sanction the 360 Wildcat Winter Sprints series.
The POWRi/WAR Sprints debut in the Grand Canyon state on February 4, 2017 at Wildcat Raceway paying $3,000 to win and $250 to start. There will be a follow up two-day weekend of competition on the 3/8 mile oval February 17-18, 2017 paying $2,000 to win Friday and $3,000 to win the Saturday night finale.
