Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (February 20, 2020) – With the Florida portion of the 410-ci Sprint Car season in the books, Brad Sweet is out to the initial lead in the STIDA Winged 410 Power Rankings as the safety and insurance leader of racers competing in the country and beyond has renewed its sponsorship of the popular Power Rankings at www.sprintcarmania.com.

After taking the number one position away from Donny Schatz last year for the first time, “The Big Cat” had a stellar DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park with a pair of wins and five podium finishes in as many starts at Volusia to capture the early number one position in STIDA Winged 410 Power Rankings.

Sweet holds the early number one ranking by 30 points over Aaron Reutzel, who picked off All Star Circuit of Champions wins at both Volusia and East Bay while also posting three consecutive top-ten finishes in World of Outlaws action.

Ian Madsen is another four points back in third with DIRTcar Nationals finale winner Logan Schuchart and Donny Schatz filling out the early top five.  James McFadden is sixth with others among the current top ten including Daryn Pittman, Cory Eliason, Kyle Larson and Carson Macedo.
