XR Super Series Adjusts 2022 Schedule, Addressing Expenses For Drivers & Teams

Story By: BRANDON BROWN / XR – SILVER BAY, MN – XR announces adjustments to 2022 schedule, tackling rising costs for teams as well as announcing venue changes and additions.

Changes to the XR Super Series schedule are on the way. With supply chain issues, inflation, and fuel costs affecting competition, XR has adjusted its docket to ease stress on drivers’ and teams’ wallets. Race dates will be spread out more evenly with emphasis on supplemental events/dates that route with national tours.

The Fever Heat 100 at Karl Chevrolet of Stuart International Speedway (Iowa) has been shortened from its original four-day show to two days (July 11-12), and the Sunshine State 50 at All-Tech Raceway (Fla.) is now two days (December 2-3) instead of the original three. An extra day has been added to the Superior Showcase at Gondik Law Speedway (Wis.) and the event will now be a Monday/Tuesday show on August 8-9.

“We want to make our schedule as racer-friendly as possible, and we’ve made these adjustments to ease any fuel and travel burdens on anyone who wants to race with us,” said XR Chief Operating Officer Dan Robinson. “We’re doing our part to make the necessary changes to fit what’s best for every driver and team member. We’re creating more opportunities for racers with less costs.”

With the entire schedule at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track canceled for 2022 due to track resurfacing, the Dirt Nationals event on September 19-20 needed a new home. That event has been moved to Kokomo Speedway (Ind.). It will now be called the Kokomo Dirt Nationals and keep the same date. This date falls between the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series’ events at Knoxville (Iowa) and Brownstown (Ind.). Kokomo’s location fits perfectly geographically between the two venues, easing a travel burden on those wanting to race all three events. The event – now at Kokomo – will still be a part of the XR Super Series Triple Double.

An XR Super Series Late Model date has also been added to the Racetrack Revival at North Wilkesboro Speedway October 28-29 as part of the month-long dirt racing campaign in October.

With the Texas Dirt Nationals no longer being held, the Stock Cars will not race at Kokomo, but will pick up the Iowa Dirt Nationals at Dubuque (Iowa) Speedway on October 13-15 for three nights of qualifying. Due to travel concerns, the Karl Kustoms Stock Cars have been removed from the Sunshine State 50 at All-Tech Raceway, and the Stock Car Championship Race will now be held at the Duel in the Desert at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Nev.) November 10-12.

“We will continue to be flexible with our dates based on economic conditions and will always make our decisions with the best interests of our racers, teams and fans in mind,” Robinson added.

Overall number of races remains the same. The overall purse money for the remaining docket has increased $100,000 for the year.
