As far as I know sprint cars [ the US version ] are raced in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa

In New Zealand the sanctioning bodies are"Speedway New Zealand" and "Circle Track Racing Assn of New Zealand"

Simply Google.  Try Googling NARC sprint car champions and see what happens  ;)
