Sprint cars are popular high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks. Typically powered by a 6-liter American V8 engine, these small but very powerful cars produce as much as 1,100 horsepower giving them an incredible power to weight ratio. The 410 Sprint car exist as a winged and non-winged version. Despite the huge popularity, and over 50 years of Sprint car racing, the category has only ever held one unofficial “World Championship”.
