Sidewinder Sprints – 2014 – Path Valley Opening Night is upon us
This coming Friday night (18th) will see the Sidewinders knock the rust off for 2014 season with their opening nights action at Path Valley. With 23 points races scheduled (still allows some weekends off for family activities) the chase for the championship will be a true test of man, machine and crew.
The twin feature format will once again be utilized every week.
For those that do not know the format, it is simple but as fair as possible. The pill draw lines up the first feature and a full invert of the 1st feature lineup becomes the 2nd feature lineup. Both features are 15 lap sprints. Now the drivers actually have 2 more racing laps / night (30 instead of 28) and every time they hit the track it will create extra action with all the cars, every race. This also reduces the “track time” required by reducing the normal two 8 lap heats and a 20 lap feature (total 36 laps) to just 30 laps. The spectators and drivers will be rewarded with more racing action and more passing. Anyway you look at it; this format becomes a win/win scenario.
With so many people sharing their
disdain for how racing has become “cookie cutter”, with the Sidewinder Sprints
it is anything but “cookie cutter”. It all comes down to individual
choice; 10" or 13" wheels, up to a 16sqft wing, Micro or
Upright chassis, American Racer or Hoosier tires. For those wanting cost
effective HP, use the stock 1000cc engines. For those wanting to tinker you can
have engines under 760cc and you can do whatever you want to them.
With both car owner and drivers championships up for grabs, the question remains, who will become the 2014 champions?
Bottom line, winged racing can’t get any more cost effective and exciting than the Sidewinder Sprints !
