The 2023 Winter Shootout Series schedule will see all events on the mini tour take place in the month of January, with scheduled events coinciding with long-time winter/off-season staples at their respective facilities.
The 2023 Winter Shootout Series will bring in the New Year with action set at Mitch and Tanya McCarter’s 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, TN during the 13th Annual Hangover on January 1st, 2023. The weekend will get started with an Open Practice on Saturday, December 31st, 2022, and culminate with a $2,500-to-Win feature on Sunday, January 1st, 2023.
The series then takes just a few days off before heading to “The Hornet’s Nest”, Talladega Short Track, for the 32nd Annual Ice Bowl. The longstanding, winter event will see Open Practice on Thursday, January 5th, followed by Qualifying and Heat Race Action Friday, January 6th, and B-Mains and a $3,000-to-Win Feature will finish out the weekend on Saturday, January 7th.
