The USAC Sprint Car schedule showcases 50 races in 2021 with racing from coast-to-coast. There will be plenty of sprint car action over the three major series: The World of Outlaws have already announced a 90-race slate of racing. Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions will host 59 races.

Along with the Outlaws and ASCOC, USAC’s schedule features increased purses in a number of events, new venues and a return to racing at several tracks that have not been visited by the series in quite some while.

USAC Sprints kick off their season with the 12th edition of the Winter Dirt Games at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla. on Feb 11 – 13. The payout for this race has been increased to $10,000-to-win. Some other notable paydays include the $20,000-to-win Corn Belt Nationals at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway in July and the $12,000-to-win Haubstadt Hustler in September at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind.

Three new tracks will host the USAC Sprints in 2021 for the first time. Path Valley Speedway Park in Spring Run, Pa. joins the schedule in April, Bloomsburg (Pa.) Fairgrounds in June and Indianapolis’ Circle City Raceway in September will each have inaugural events.

Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway rejoins the schedule for the first time since 1971. Paragon Speedway has not hosted a USAC race since 1998 and Big Diamond since 2012.

USAC will also have races that have become synonymous with the series such as the Eastern Storm tour through Pennsylvania and New Jersey in June, Indiana’s Sprint Car Week in July, #LetsRaceTwo at Stewart’s Eldora (Ohio) Speedway in May, and the Western World Championship that traditionally ends of the season. The event that is now run at Arizona Speedway in San Tan Valley has not yet announced its dates.

Eldora will also host the 39th running of the 4-Crown Nationals on Sept. 25 that features Sprint Cars, Midgets, and Silver Crown cars on the same night.

The NTT IndyCar Series’ 2023 schedule will feature the same number of races and tracks as this season with some minor reshuffling of dates.

IndyCar will open the 2023 season March 5 on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida, and will conclude Sept. 10 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. The 107th Indy 500 will take place May 28 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 17-race schedule will conclude with a stretch of eight races in the final nine weeks.
