Tyler Bachman taking over the Midgets and this in the Press Release>

With Bachman at the helm, the 2023 schedule will focus solely on the Midget Series, rather than spread across to Non-Wing Sprint Cars. Volusia Speedway Parkís DIRTcar Nationals in February will continue to feature premier Non-Wing Sprint Car racing.

I hope that this coming season for the Xtreme Midgets will be more than simple POWRi co-sanctions that money grab livestreams away from "MAVtv on Flo" and on to $Dirtvision$. It seems that model didn't work too good for the sprint cars. I do wish them good luck, though, in the name of midget-only drivers and teams.

I'm not sure what your saying about the sprints. The Jacksonville IL and Spoon River shows were two of the best races I saw all year.

Itís a poorly written sentence but it appears Xtreme Outlaw is now just a midget deal. I read something in Area Auto Racing News about that recently.

Hence why I posted that Volusia does not list em as xtreme series, Just Non wing sprints.

They were, indeed, both very good races. What I'm saying is that, obviously, the business model did not work, hence, neither will return in 2023. World Racing Group (WoO) has decided that Xtreme Sprints was not a good business venture, or they would be returning for another season.

That is straight from the Xtreme site. You can read this either way - The "premier" Non-Wing Sprint Car Racing is not attached to Xtreme anymore, OR if you read the paragraph in one context it tells me that Xtreme will focus on midgets only but will still uphold their DIRTcar Nationals dates for the sprints.

A ship-shod press release the way it is worded/explained? A play on words using "Xtreme" and "Premier"? Either way the sprints are on the docket for two nights and someone will be organizing/sanctioning it. More than likely the last time, though - unless USAC steps in down the line.

Volusia is owned by WRG same company that owns WoO, thats why USAC doesnt race there.
