Representatives from nearly every pavement sprint car series in North America have already filed an entry. Must See Racing, 500 Sprint Car Tour, Southern Sprint Car Shootout Series, Speed Tour, NSRA, Northwest Sprint Tour, Gunslingers, USAC Silver Crown Series, Inland Winged Sprints, and Granite Super Sprints are all currently represented.

Promoter Davey Hamilton, Jr. announced last week that he was cutting entries off at 75. That leaves less than two dozen spots left with several drivers of note who plan to attend but haven’t yet filed an entry.

“This has been absolutely incredible,” Hamilton, Jr. said. “We have some TBAs who are entered, and let me tell you, some of those spots are very well known in the racing world. This event will help our sport in a lot of ways. There are so many partners involved helping to make this event possible. This event should be bigger every year from all avenues, but if we don’t all work together to help grow this thing, it won’t be possible. I need everyone to help grow this event.”

The event will also include a $10,000 to win National Midget event that will put the total purse over $200,000 for both races. Kingsburg, California’s Kody Swanson has entered for double-duty action across both the Sprint Cars and Midgets competition. Swanson will look to add to his illustrious resume of USAC Silver Crown and Little 500 success in Las Vegas.

Hamilton, Jr. hinted on several big announcements regarding this event in the coming weeks including tire prices and Facebook live events where competitors can ask questions and get up to date on all things Open Wheel Showdown.

Tickets are currently on sale though the Las Vegas Bullring online ticketing at:
