Sprint Car Racing

Sprint cars are high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks. Sprint car racing is popular in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.

Sprint cars have a high power-to-weight ratio, making speeds in excess of 140 miles per hour (230 km/h) possible on some tracks. This speed often also makes racing sprint cars very dangerous. 850 horsepower is commonplace for these machines.
