The Southern United Sprints is currently in it’s second season, but based on car counts, you would have no idea this is a relatively new class of cars. Randy Waller, owner/promotor, has done a tremendous job building a affordable sprint car class that is now touring across Texas and Louisiana. Recently the Southern United Sprints worked with EMSA (John Coyle) to bring the mini-sprint’s into the sanction. The recent addition of the mini sprint division will bring along the 600cc “A” class, Restrictor class, and the Junior Sprints. This allows drivers to start at a young age and progress all the way into a full size sprint car.
We had the chance to sit down and talk with Randy Waller who gave a lot more detail on the 305 and Mini Sprint division of the Southern United Sprints. You can listen to the completely interview on above Link.
Randy also owns and operates Gator Motorplex in Willis, Texas. Gator just came off a massive sprint car show last saturday. The 3rd Annual Nolan Wren Memorial race brought 92 sprint cars out in support. This was a great race that also featured the ASCS sprint cars. Needless to say, Sprint Car racing in Texas is alive and well.
