WINDOM, Minn. – official series release —

The initial 2016 schedule for the National Sprint League 410 Sprint Car Series was announced on Friday.

The schedule encompasses over thirty events in six states, featuring a number of exciting return trips from its inaugural season as well as some much anticipated new venues.

Headlining the schedule will be the 38th Annual AGCO Jackson Nationals at Minnesota’s Jackson Motorplex, September 2-4. For the first time, the Jackson Nationals will be a three-day event and last year’s winner, Sammy Swindell, walked away with a check for $25,000!

The $20,000 to win Front Row Challenge will again be a part of the schedule.  One of the biggest events in all of sprint car racing will take place at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Aug. 8.  A trio of “Dirt Classic” events presented by Kasey Kahne are on the schedule as well.  On May 6, the “Dirt Classic” at I-80 Speedway will pay $10,000 to the winner, and two non-point September events in Pennsylvania — including a $20,000 to win event at Lincoln Speedway — are also featured on the calendar.

Knoxville Raceway in Iowa will host a total of ten events. Highlighting the shows at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World” will be a two-day show over the Fourth of July weekend, featuring fireworks on Saturday, July 2.  Jackson Motorplex will also play host to multiple NSL events on Friday nights. In addition to the Jackson Nationals, the revamped speed plant will be the site of the Folkens Brothers Trucking Spring Nationals on May 13 and the Jackson County Fair race on July 29.

Other return venues for the NSL include their season opener at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa on April 9 and the St. Francois County Raceway near Farmington, Mo. on May 27. At the conclusion of the season, the NSL will be part of the track’s traditional Queen’s Royale as well, Sept. 30-Oct. 1.

The series also returns to the Iowa State Fair Speedway in Des Moines on May 29 and the Hancock County Speedway near Britt, Iowa on July 31.
