By Tommy Goudge

(January 14, 2023) – The Pinty’s Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series is ready for season six! Series officials are excited to announce a total of 25 AST sanctioned events in 2023, and combined championship points funds in excess of $35,000.

The 2023 calendar is anchored by eight Pinty’s AST National Series events, plus eight Surprenant Truck Shop AST East Series events, and nine Oakwood Transport AST West Series events. National events are scheduled for Brockville Ontario Speedway, Brighton Speedway, Ohsweken Speedway, and Humberstone Speedway. The West Series schedule also includes Merrittville Speedway along with Ohsweken and Humberstone, while the East Series schedule brings Upstate New York’s Can-Am Speedway into the AST fold for the first time, along with Cornwall Motor Speedway, and Brockville.

CASH ON THE LINE
Pinty’s Delicious Foods is returning as the title sponsor of the Action Sprint Tour in 2023 and has added an additional $5,000 to the pot, allowing five more positions to be paid out from the national championship points fund; the 2023 national championship winner will be rewarded with $5,000, while 15th place in the national championship standings will pay $1,000.

Each regional championship will feature a $5,000 points fund, with $1,000 going to each regional champion. Surprenant Truck Shop and Oakwood Transport are the title sponsors for the two regional series, while Trailer Pros Canada, Corr/Pak Merchandising, and Hoosier Tire Canada are also supporting the Action Sprint Tour in 2023.
