SODUS, NY – Mother Nature may have claimed the first three attempts at kicking off the 2022 Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints season, but an added incentive program will be well in place when the series does kick off this Sunday.

The point fund will be split amongst the Top 10 in points for the series stops at those three tracks along the New York State Thruway.

One of the more anticipated CRSA Sprints series kickoffs in recent history is set to kick off on Sunday night in Weedsport, NY at the “Showpiece of the Northeast” Weedsport Speedway. Sunday night will start a 16-race schedule that will span the states of New York and Pennsylvania to crown the 2022 Super Gen Products with Champion Power Equipment CRSA Sprints champion.
If recent past history is any indication, this Sunday night at Weedsport will be a barn burner as it was youngster Jordan Hutton, Darryl Ruggles and Bobby Parrow that dazzled the Weedsport fans in 2021. The event will be broadcast on www.dirtvision.com as part of their Fast Pass program as the CRSA Sprints will join both the Super DIRTcar Series and DIRTcar Sportsman Series this weekend.
Pits open Sunday at 3:00PM. The grandstands open at 4:00PM with a band playing live music in the beer garden. A driver’s meeting will take place at 4:45PM with Heat in Engines and Hot Laps rolling off at 5:10PM and 5:25PM respectively. Race time is 6:30PM.
