Inaugural Silver State Super Speedweeks to Occur January 17-21 & February 21-25
LAS VEGAS (February 12, 2022)—XR announces 2022-23 winter schedule at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, including three weeks with Super Late Model competition.
Building off the momentum of events like the Duel in the Desert, XR has doubled down on racing in Las Vegas, unveiling a winter schedule that will include seven shows November 2022 through March 2023. Super Late Models will be a part of three events, including the brand new Silver State Super Speedweeks.
“XR Events has made significant progress at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway since promoting our first Duel in the Desert in 2020,” said XR Chief Executive Officer Barry Braun. “Our aggressive schedule for 2022-23 is the start of a long-term effort to offer sanctions, teams, racers and fans a unique racing destination during the winter season.”
On top of the unprecedented schedule, The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will undergo a revitalization before the winter season kicks off.
“With the number of improvements we’ve done and will do, The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will be a premier venue for dirt track racing,” said XR Chief Operating Officer Dan Robinson. “Our latest efforts have proven that events with a smaller footprint can provide a great race and an incredible experience. Combine that with the bright lights of Las Vegas, the beauty of the desert parks and many recreational opportunities, and we’ll truly have a destination that all fans can enjoy.”
The winter racing season will kick off with the 25th annual Duel in the Desert November 9-12, 2022, featuring the XR Super Series Late Models during the final three nights with two $25,000-to-win shows and one $50,000-to-win show. The Duel will again serve as the finale for XR’s Double Down Triple Crown bonus program. Additional classes will be announced later.
The new Silver State Super Speedweeks will be held on January 17-21 and February 21-25 with 10 total nights of Super Late Model competition. Each night will feature an increase in winner payout, starting with a $11,000-to-win main event on January 17. Winner’s shares will increase by $1,000 every race, with February 25’s main event paying $20,000-to-win. A Silver State Super Speedweeks points fund will be determined at a later date.
The Las Vegas Dirt Nationals (January 4-7, 2023) and Workin’ Man Nationals (February 7-11, 2023) return for their second annual events with classes to be announced later.
