Triple Crown at Cedar Lake Speedway and Norm Nelson Classic at Angell Park Speedway set to host the action! 

May 27, 2014; Appleton, WI. - Hot on the heels of the last double-header weekend, the teams of the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints are about to double up the excitement again. 

Recently revamped to make the track more sprint car friendly the Sunday June 1st program will mark the first appearance for winged 410 sprints in 29 years.  The show will be known as the “1st annual Norm Nelson Classic”. 

The race will honor Norm Nelson who won the first ever midget feature at the track on June 2, 1946. Nelson also won inaugural Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Championship in 1960. 

The Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlow Sprints will be part of a four division show which will also include, Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Racing Series, Badger 600 Micros, and the Wisconsin Dirt Legends. 

Grandstands open at 4:30 pm, practice and qualifying beginning at 6:00 pm, with racing to follow. Adults are admitted for $20, while a student ticket is available for $15.  Children under the age of 12 are admitted FREE 

Currently Balog and Phillip Mock sit atop the season win list with two victories each.  Balog, seeking his seventh series title has the edge in the current standings by 96 markers over Mock and he swept last weekend’s double header taking wins at Wilmot Raceway and 141 Speedway.  

Rookie of the Year contender Scotty Thiel sits third in points having just scored his first podium finish in the series, and he sits just ahead of former World of Outlaw Series regular Bill Rose who narrowly missed victory in the season opening show. Last season’s Rookie of the Year Jeremy Schultz rounds out the top five in current points, all of the aforementioned drivers are expected to appear at both shows.
