    Inside Line Promotions – FINDLAY, Ohio (Jan. 8, 2015) – The Renegade Sprints will usher in a new era in 2015.
    The 410ci sprint car series, which was formed last summer to create value for sponsors and promoters along with offering an affordable form of high-quality entertainment for the fans, is scheduled to compete in at least 36 events at 15 race tracks in five states this season.
    “We have a few dates that we are still working on, but the majority of our schedule is complete,” Renegade Sprints President Shane Helms said. “Everyone associated with the Renegade Sprints is extremely excited with the 2015 schedule that we put together for our first full season.”
    The series will debut at Atomic Speedway in Chillicothe, Ohio, on March 28 – the first of a series-high seven events at the high-banked track, including the $20,000-to-win Open Wheel Championships on May 2.
    “The politics in Ohio has been very heated and we want to thank all the tracks for giving us a chance,” Helms said. “We believe it will be successful for all parties and will grow each year.”
    Other tracks in Ohio that have currently booked at least one Renegade Sprints event include: Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Hilltop Speedway in Millersburg, Millstream Speedway in Findlay and Brushcreek Motorsports Park in Peebles.
    The Renegade Sprints will also make at least seven trips into Pennsylvania for events at Bedford Speedway in Bedford, Path Valley Speedway Park in Spring Run, Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove, Big Diamond Speedway in Pottsville and Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville.
    Additionally, the series will compete in Indiana at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown; in Michigan at Hartford Speedway in Hartford; and in Illinois at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville for a non-points event with the National Sprint League, Midwest Open Wheel Association and IRA Outlaw Sprint Series.
    “We are working closely with the NSL to make something big happen on top of that date at Jacksonville,” Helms said.
    Of the handful of dates to be determined, most are during the Renegade Week of Speed from June 18-24, when events at Attica Raceway Park, Wayne County Speedway and Atomic Speedway are scheduled.
    “We’re waiting on a few tracks to come on board during that time,” Helms said. “I hope we can add a couple more new tracks, but if that doesn’t happen most of those dates will be picked up by tracks already on the schedule.”
    In other news, Tri-City Raceway Park in Franklin, Pa., has committed to at least one date in 2015 and is working on a possible Western Pennsylvania Speedweek.
    Additional details about new dates will be posted once they are finalized.

      WOW ... they have about 5-6 weeks there that seem brutal on travel with either long hours from one race to the next night or only have a 1 day show pretty far away from base camp.

      Good luck to those team and hope you are well rested because your going to have some long nights going from one track to the next. These locals are going to be broken in right with traveling around the area and also better not have some bad weather where things get delayed or have long night with a lot of divisions of cars.

      Best of luck to these teams on this 4 state, I mean 5 state series. Also overall the schedule looks pretty good. Obviously missing some good tracks here and there and doing some traveling, but the majority of the races are somewhat close together. Will be interesting to see how the other local tracks schedule with these dates out there now on competing nights.

      One thing just looking at the schedule ... there isn't to many conflicting dates with Attica right now ... only a couple of shows on Friday night so far, but I am sure that might change once the season gets closer or could they be using Attica as a home-base to get fans interested in the new series early on?

        Wow is all I can say. Everyone knows I'm all for the Renegades but having two speedweeks head to head is terrible. This could lead to low counts at all tracks regardless of sanctioning which leads to below average ticket sales which hurts all involved. The rest of the Renegade schedule looks promising except that. My apologies to Swamp that 10 day span will be a mess.

          Well I am still hopeful something can be worked out with some of these dates and get some type of understanding between both sides which I know is highly unlikely, but I am still hopeful. That entire two weeks there between the 19th of June to the 5th of July could be interesting with the amount of races in the area and how the fans support it?

            Hartford will be the track that suffers in that deal. Friday night track at least 2-4 hours from most teams that work Fridays. Then turn around and drive another 6 hours! Wow really looking out for fans and drivers and tracks on that deal.

              May 15th at Jacksonville is not a Renegade sanctioned event. I know this as fact because I know the whole story. If I invite myself to a party, I don't tell everyone its MY party! You can't say you are sending your drivers to a race and then put it on your schedule as a sanctioned event. It causes confusion and problems for the track. Keep pissing off promoters and this deal will be done before it starts! On top of that, I will say it again. You cannot have this many high dollar shows in a small area over a short period of time it WILL NOT work. Simple economics. Someone needs to take a class! Running a series is hard.

                As you know by now, at Jacksonville Speedway we canceled our All Star sanction for the May 15th Sprints Gone Wild event after the recent comments by officials of the series that made some news. In doing so, some teams who were aligned with the Renegades indicated that they would be coming to support our show... which is their choice. The more cars the merrier! Today I see our race made the Renegade schedule as a non-points race.

                I just want to be clear, that we as a track are not placing ourselves in the middle of this Ohio Civil war. Any driver is welcome to attend our event on May 15 - regardless of affiliation.. and that includes any driver who races for points in either the All Star or Renegade series. Hopefully by May 15th the sprint car world is again at peace and everyone can enjoy a great night of racing in the MIdwest.

                  If the other series did this, people would lose their minds and be smashing their keyboards to shreds typing anti All Star comments as fast as they can. I have listened to drivers who are now Renegades complain for years about unreasonable travel and going to Central PA to compete. Now suddenly its all great. As much as I try to stay neutral here I have to call BS when I see BS.

                    So much for the 4 dates at Hilltop as shown in earlier releases and the Tri City has now vanished as well. Jacksonville is a event that the promoter has mentioned he didnt want on the schedule as a Renegade event. Looks like some of the early dates at Hilltop and Tri City were used as scare tatics to get shows. Even PPMS has less dates than what was released earlier. Between the Bert disappearing act, the Frankie up in smoke and the mystery dates this is all a show to get people to sign up. The Hammers are even a show as the truth has been told this is a Renegade operated track with good name of the Hammers being put in the middel of this war. We will see if they are willing to have their name used as was Berts and Frankie. This could have been a good thing if they would have done as they said by running a better business but these are all things that we fans busted Webbs ass over and it is becoming a repeat cycle. It is the All Stars born again!!

                    I agree with you swamp on the dates 22 dates at just 4 tracks will be something to see even with the best support it won't work well. The other thing that will be killed over this is the OVSCA that I enjoy. So much for something good for the guy who likes to hit the road but not be a career racer. Ohio fans and racers may want to take in a show at every track this summer as next summer there will surely be less tracks to enjoy. The Revolution is here enjoy.

                            It is on the Renegade schedule. It is not a Renegade sanctioned event. Maybe it should not be listed on the schedule and they could have released something down the road to say they were going there to support it for no points. You can't crash a party and say its your party! Rookie mistake. What they don't get is the issues it may cause the track with sponsors, other sanctions, fans, etc. He posted above, so read that post.

                              Swamp we can do this all night, at the end of the night it gets us nowhere. I dont think they were saying it's there party but maybe just maybe to let those who are going to follow know where they will be at.
