INDIANAPOLIS – One of the hottest young stars in sprint car racing will compete for a Midweek Money Series championship with High Limit Racing next season.

Announced Thursday during the opening day of the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show, 18-year-old Corey Day and Clauson Marshall Racing will team up for the mini-series within the national High Limit Racing schedule, as well as other select events that will be announced at a later date.

CMR was established in 2016 as a USAC National Midget Series team, later branching into sprint car racing with both USAC (non-winged) and the now-defunct All Star Circuit of Champions (winged).

The team has won a USAC midget championship, USAC sprint car championship, and a pair of All Star titles since its inception.

High Limit Racing was expanded recently ahead of the 2024 season after series co-owners Kyle Larson and Brad Sweet acquired the assets of the All Stars from Tony Stewart. Day’s talent and a national stage where CMR is already familiar with some of the established venues made committing to the Midweek Money Series an easy decision for team co-owner Tim Clauson.

“We were lucky to get to work with Corey in 2021 during Indiana Midget Week, when he became the youngest driver to ever win a USAC national event while driving a CMR car. That week, we talked a lot about his future and goals, and he made it very clear winged 410 sprint car racing was where he wanted to be. We are excited to be a part of that journey,” said Clauson.

“In 2023, we experienced the High Limit Series from both the team side and with Driven2SaveLives on the event partnership side," added fellow CMR co-owner Richard Marshall. “The experience was first class, which made the decision easy on where we wanted to race. Corey is undoubtedly one of the next stars that will carry our sport into its next era. As a sprint car fan, he is unbelievably exciting to watch. For a team owner and sponsor, he is the well-rounded balance of a fierce competitor, and well-spoken ambassador for our brand and our sport. We are proud and excited to go racing with Corey in 2024.” 

Day joins CMR fresh off a season during which he made the Knoxville Nationals main event, earned the Northern Auto Racing Club (NARC) sprint car title, and won two crown jewel sprint car events – the Gold Cup Race of Champions and the Trophy Cup.

“I am extremely excited to have Clauson Marshall Racing back a part of my racing career,” noted Day. “I can’t wait to represent Driven2SaveLives and Indiana Donor Network for the 2024 season. I know we will do great things together on the track and continue conversations within the racing community about organ and tissue donation, and ultimately save more lives.”

The Indiana Donor Network first partnered with Clauson Marshall Racing in 2017, and its Driven2SaveLives initiative has been a key part of the team since then. Clauson’s late son Bryan, a multi-time USAC champion, was an organ donor and helped save five lives as an organ donor after his passing.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Clauson Marshall Racing and introduce Corey Day as a Driven2SaveLives ambassador,” said Indiana Donor Network President and CEO Kellie Tremain. “The Driven2SaveLives program has grown into one of the most recognizable brands in short track racing. Our partnership with Clauson Marshall Racing and Corey Day is a big part of our commitment to getting more people to say ‘yes’ to donation, honoring donor heroes, supporting transplant recipients and finding a lifesaving gift for more than 100,000 Americans waiting for a transplant.”
