Inside Line Promotions – COLCORD, Okla. (April 8, 2024) – Derek Hagar is planning to pilot a Paul Hart owned sprint car, affectionately known as the Sonic Blaster, approximately 15 times this year with a variety of World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and Kubota High Limit Racing shows on the schedule.

The season began last Saturday at Arrowhead Speedway during the World of Outlaws Jason Johnson Classic.

“I felt like we were decent,” Hagar said. “We’re low on crew members so I was having to do everything myself. Being in a rush, I didn’t have time to run air so we were rich on the motor so it wasn’t running to the best of its ability in qualifying. It changed a bunch and we were way too rich.”

Hagar qualified 30 th quickest and he finished where he started – eighth – in a heat race. He capped the night by advancing from 10 th to sixth place in the Last Chance Showdown, ending only two positions shy of transferring into the main event.

“We didn’t qualify well or heat race well,” he said. “We changed a bunch of stuff so the car would work and it was better in the LCS, but we didn’t have the brakes to drive the car the way I wanted to.

“With these guys you have to be on top of your game from the time you unload. We’ll regroup and get new brakes on the car this week. We got some things worked out and I feel confident going into Pevely.”

The team returns to action with the World of Outlaws this Friday and Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., during the World of Outlaws Spring Classic. The tentative plan is to also race with ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ the following weekend in Kentucky and Indiana.

April 6 – Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Okla. – Qualifying: 30; Heat race: 8 (8); B Main: 6 (10).

SEASON STATS –
