YES, there is a new type of racing that will be hitting the ice in 2012! 
A take off from the endurance two-way racing, this will be a short course of 800-1500m that is very similar to a go-kart track.  Course will be close to the oval track and will be run at the same time as oval racing.  We are hoping to attract new racers as it may be difficult to coordinate oval and sprint in the same day.  This is a new style of racing and we will be working out some of the details as we go along.  Classes are general to start out and as this discipline grows, so will the classes.  Then the ultimate goal would be in the future to run Sprint on Saturdays and Oval on Sundays, but for 2012, it is not feasible to do so.  So call up your friends and family and help us to introduce this new style and make is a SUCCESS!  A call to all mini roadracers, there is a special Thumper class just for you!
