A Sportman Sprint car weighs 1,600lbs and is powered by a 500+ horsepower methynol burning engine.
NPP Late Model Series- The Northern Provincial Pipelines Late Model Series ran its first official season in 2001. These full body race cars are similar in appearance to NASCAR 'style' pavement late models and can reach speeds of over 110mph.
Northern Thunder Dirt Late Models-The Northern Thunder Dirt Late Model class ran its inaugural season at Castrol Raceway in 2012. Dirt Late Models are a close cousin to the '360' Sprint Car.
