The 2023 Action Sprint Tour fueled by Pinty’s is a championship for winged Sprint Cars. The Action Sprint Tour is a championship for winged sprint cars. These open-wheel tube frame Sprint Cars are powered by spec engines. Teams must use one of two GM Circle Track Crate Engines – part #88869602 or part #19258602. The motors are equipped with a Holley carburetor fitted on a V8 engine, which produces 350 horsepower @ 5,400 rpm. The cars are not equipped with a starter motor and require a push to start.

The chassis rules are simple. They must be a four-post design and cannot use chassis or suspension cockpit adjustable devices. Brakes are limited to steel or aluminum rotors. Spec Hoosier Tires are mounted on eighteen-inch wide wheels on the right and left rear; wheels must not exceed fifteen inches.

After a race, this competitive package must weigh no less than 1,600 pounds (with the driver and no fuel).
