Honest Abe Roofing Winged Mavericks Sprint Car Series
For Immediate Release: September 12, 2023
Subject: Honest Abe Roofing Winged Mavericks Sprint Car Series
Today, Kevin Newton, the President, and CEO Honest Abe Roofing Company in conjunction with Joe and Jill Spiker of JS Promotions announced the formation of the Honest Abe Roofing Winged Mavericks Sprint Car Series. The inaugural event will be held on Friday, October 6 at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana. A $32,000 purse will be posted with a $6,000 top prize going to the winner of the 30-lap main event.
In 2024 it is anticipated that the new wing 410 series will offer a ten-to-twelve-week schedule with races slated at Lincoln Park and Bloomington Speedway’s with additional dates and venues to be determined. Jill Spiker of JS Promotions noted, “we felt the time was right to move in this direction. We remain committed to traditional sprint car racing but see this as a natural landing spot for drivers interested in moving up from 305 wing sprint cars.” Spiker also notes that many drivers who race traditional sprint cars “have shown an increased interest in expanding their horizons.”
Kevin Newton of Honest Abe Roofing remains an active competitor in wing and traditional sprint cars and has lent his support to a wide range of racing ventures. “I enjoy wing racing and our State doesn’t have that,” Newton says, “We are strong in the non-wing realm, and it will remain strong, but there is plenty of bandwidth for wing racing to have a spot here. I reached out to JS Promotions with the idea, and they said let’s do it. I am excited to give drivers who came through the micros and 305’s the chance to progress in their career.”
