What is a Sprintcar?

Sprint cars are high-powered race cars designed primarily for the purpose of running on short oval or circular dirt or paved tracks.

The added wings increased the downforce generated on the car, with the opposite direction of the sideboards helping to turn the car in the corners. This makes the car easier to control.
