Angell Park Speedway has rescheduled the May 21st Tony Stewart Sprint Car Challenge which was cut short due to rain this past Sunday, to Thursday night June 8th.  This date was picked thinking it was the best possibility to avoid conflict with other events and allow most competitors to return, and possibly even draw a few others.  And yes “Smoke” moved his schedule around so he WILL BE returning too.  The Badger Midgets and Wisconsin Dirt Legends have also agreed to this date. The generous $5000 to win, $500 to start sprint car payout which drew 53 sprint cars this past Sunday will again be in place.  Tickets and pit passes purchased on May 21 will be good for the return event on June 8th.  Angell Park will honor the tickets and pit passes purchased by folks who can’t return on June 8th, to ANY other event on the 2017 Angell Park schedule.  Angell Park Speedway hosts their most diverse schedule in their long history for 2017 featuring a full schedule of events which include with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints, POWRi National Midgets, Badger Midgets, Wisconsin wingLESS Sprints, Wisconsin Dirt Legends, Dirt King Late Models, MSA 360 Sprints, WI/IL Vintage Stock Cars, Monster Trucks, Vintage Mods, and more.  Angell Park is the home of the annual Pepsi Midget Nationals which will be contested July 9, and their historic Miller Lite Cornfest headlined by IRA Aug 20th.

  June 8th will also kick-off a 3 day weekend for the Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series which will continue to sanction the activities on June 8, with the 2nd round of the Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown going trackside Friday June 9 at what very well “could be” the final sprint car event ever held at the Oshkosh SpeedZone, with the weekend concluding at Wisconsin’s original home of sprint cars, Wilmot Raceway on Saturday night June 10. This trio of events is another potential draw for both fans and competitors to Wisconsin.   

  With sprint cars present from all corners of the country Sunday, a return date is difficult for a few All Star regulars who came as far away as Pennsylvania, as their series has 11 events scheduled in a 16 day period from June 9-25, thus while many All Star teams have indicated their willingness to return to Angell Park on June 8, the series felt in fairness to ALL their series teams, that they couldn’t co-sanction this rescheduled event.  The series is absolutely NOT preventing any of their teams from competing, and as stated, some All Star teams have indicated they will be returning on June 8th, and the series hopes to join IRA at the legendary Angell Park Speedway again next year.  The IRA and the All Stars share a strong relationship and look forward to “America’s Series” returning to the Badger state in the future.  June 8th will be a 35 lap A-main, just like what the original plan was and will be run under IRA rules and format. Also, calls have been received by some other teams who missed May 21st, that have indicated they’ll be at “The Prairie” on Thursday night June 8th also.
