The 2nd Annual Norm Nelson Classic: Sunday, July 19th

Sun Prairie, WI. – On Sunday, July 19th the Bumper-to-Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Car Series will return to Angell Park Speedway along with the Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series, and Wisconsin Legends for the 2nd 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 the inaugural Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Championship in 1960. Nelson’s career is also highlighted by three USAC National Stock Car Championships, and 35 USAC Stock Car wins.  Nelson’s eleven victories at the famed Milwaukee Mile place him second on the all-time win list.

The IRA Sprint Cars’ third appearance will follow a night at Eagle Valley Speedway in Jim Falls, Wisconsin.  The first IRA show at Angell Park Speedway in 2015 on May 31st saw Bill Balog take the checkers over Mike Reinke and Bill Rose, after a close battle with Ian Madsen.  Madsen flattened a right rear tire with two to go, but still held on for sixth place.  IRA’s most recent show at Angell Park Speedway on Sunday, June 21st saw Scott Neitzel overcome not only one, but two green-white-checkered restarts to end a dry spell dated back to September of 2013.

Last year’s inaugural Norm Nelson Classic saw Jerry Coons, Jr. taking the win in the  Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie/Mid-State Equipment Badger Midget Series, earning his 27th career victory at Angell Park Speedway driving the Hans Lein Racing #2 entry.
