high limit series adds wayne county event

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — The High Limit Sprint Car Series will take to the race track for a second time this season Sept. 27 at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio.

The series, which is the brainchild of NASCAR Cup Series champion Kyle Larson and his brother-in-law, three-time World of Outlaws champion Brad Sweet, will contest the Sheldon Haudenschild High Limit Buckeye Brawl presented by DAC Pet Products at the Ohio driver’s home race track.

The second event in the series, which is designed to offer high-paying midweek winged sprint car races, will be promoted by Haudenschild, who will not race.

“I’m excited to play a part in bringing a big paying race to our local track,” said Haudenschild, an eight-time World of Outlaws winner this season. “Wayne County Speedway has proven capable of putting on well attended, competitive racing. Fans, teams, and drivers alike are what makes this possible.”

The series debuted Aug. 16 at Indiana’s Lincoln Park Speedway with Buddy Kofoid claiming the top prize in the High Limit Open.

Similar to the Open, the Buckeye Brawl will offer a lucrative purse — a $65,000 A-Main purse with $22,022 to the race winner.

Larson leads what is expected to be a competitive field in a region of the country rich with sprint car racing tradition.

“Really happy with how successful our first event went,” said Larson, who finished 10th at Lincoln Park. “It’s pretty cool to have Sheldon, who is one of the best racers we have in our sport, want to help promote an event at his hometown track. It’s an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”

With contracted World of Outlaws drivers, including Haudenschild and Sweet unable to compete, the event at the historic three-eighths-mile track falls between events at Eldora and Sharon Speedways in Ohio and the famed National Open at Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway.

Broadcast by FloRacing, the event is a precursor to what High Limit officials hope will be a 12-race schedule next season.
