FINDLAY, Ohio – official release — DB3 Imaging photo — Atomic Speedway and the Renegade Sprints will partner for approximately five races next season.

The high-banked track in Chillicothe, Ohio, hosted the inaugural Renegade Sprints event in August and will wrap up this season with the $15,000-to-win Open Wheel Championships on Oct. 24-25.

“One of the biggest things is the promotional side of it and them acting like a first-class organization,” Atomic Speedway owner and promoter Brad McCown said about working with the Renegade Sprints. “They are all banded together.”

Atomic Speedway showcased nearly 40 sprint car drivers during the first-ever Renegade Sprints event and McCown anticipates that number to go up for the Open Wheel Championships, which will be moved to a different weekend next season.

McCown said he supports the series and would encourage other track promoters to give the Renegade Sprints an opportunity.

“I’d tell them to trust in this group of drivers,” he said. “I talked to these drivers and they are together for the better of the sport. The more tracks who come on board will reap the benefits of this.”
