360 Sprint car racing has been dominated by Team MAXIM in recent events, along with high profile 410 Sprint Car events being won with drivers utilizing the Springfield, Illinois chassis manufacturer's equipment.

Gary Wright doubled up over the Labor Day weekend, taking his 13th and 14th American Sprint Car Series National Tour events of the 2003 season with his Southwest Expresslines MAXIM. Wright scored in Saturday night's 25-lap main event at Champion Park Speedway before getting his 14th win in Sunday night's 30-lap feature at Fast Trax Motorplex.

Nobody has been more consistent with the Winged Outlaw Warriors in 2003 than Eric Schrock. Schrock has driven his Big MAX to four feature wins in twenty starts, including 15 top five and 19 top ten finishes. With his performance this season, Schrock leads the series point chase. Three point races remain on the WOW schedule at Holt's Summit, the site of Schrock's most recent win August 23.

Kyle Purks picked up his second win of the 2003 season at Selinsgrove Speedway with his Big MAX chassis. The win was the third of his career. Also at Selinsgrove Chad Layton clinched the 2003 point championship with his MAXIM.

Other 360 drivers excelling with their MAXIM Race Chassis include Tim Allison in UNO/NRA competition Saturday night at Limaland; Jeff VanDusen lead all 25 laps to collect the VSM Abrasives Canadian Invasion A-Main victory at Autodrome Drummond; and Dustin Daggett continued his march to the 2003 Sprints on Dirt Championship by winning Saturday night's feature event at the Crystal Motor Speedway in Crystal, Michigan. Daggett moved up from the eighth starting position in the non-stop 30-lap feature.

410 winners include Steve Kinser taking Tulare World of Outlaws cash and regaining the series point lead with his Quaker State MAXIM; Greg Wilson was fastest at Attica's All Star event with the Hampshire MAXIM; and Greg Hodnett took the most money home from Williams Grove's Triple 20's event, earning $7,400 with finishes of fourth, second, and first in the Stewart owned, Stauffer-wrenched MAXIM. Hodnett performed an encore Saturday, winning $3,000 at Lincoln's Bobby Abel Memorial.
