IRA Sprints Set 30 Race Schedule
MCHENRY, Ill. — The Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series has announced a 30-race slate for the traveling winged 410 sprint car series that will take it to 15 tracks with 29 races in Wisconsin and one in Illinois.
“We’re really fortunate to have so much interest from the tracks which are relatively close for most of our core teams,” said IRA President Steve Sinclair. “We definitely hit all the Wisconsin markets, and racing at 15 tracks certainly still gives us the travel feel.”
Thirteen of the 15 tracks appearing on the 2014 schedule hosted events in 2013.
Seymour (Wis.) Speedway is back on the schedule after an absence of several years, but the most publicized addition to the schedule will be Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. IRA hasn’t competed at Angell Park since 1985, but planned changes to the track’s configuration should make the historic midget venue more friendly for bigger cars. IRA and the Badger midgets will share the card for both Angell Park appearances.
Beaver Dam (Wis.) Speedway and Wilmot (Wis.) Raceway will play major roles as each will host five dates, including the Jim Wipperfurth Memorial at BDR and the Kenosha Co. Fair doubleheader at Wilmot. Sheboygan County Fair Park’s Plymouth Dirt Track will host three shows, all of which, including the Sheboygan County Fair date, will be shared with the PDTR/MSA 360 Sprints.
Angell Park, Cedar Lake Speedway, Dodge County Speedway, Oshkosh (Wis.) Speed Zone and 141 Speedway in Maribel, Wis., will each have two events, while single visits will be contested at ABC Raceway, Superior Speedway, Eagle Valley Speedway, Langlade County Speedway, LaSalle (Ill.) Speedway , Rice Lake (Wis.) Speedway and Seymour Speedway.
“This schedule is even a little more friendly than last year’s. A few off weekends plus less work days, though we still have some double and tripleheader weekends,” Sinclair said. “We’re blessed to have the support of so many good tracks, plus a tremendously loyal staff and core group of racers. 2014 should be another banner year for IRA.”
