Tentative IRA Schedule Features 35 Races

BEAVER DAM, Wis. – The tentative IRA Bumper to Bumper Outlaw Sprint Series schedule, featuring 35 races from April through September, was revealed to the public Monday night.

Contained within the Midwestern gamut are stops to multiple longstanding series venues and traditional crown jewel events, as well as two premier facilities outside the state of Wisconsin.

Kicking off April 10-11, one of the opening weekend races for the IRA sprints will be a showdown with the Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series, a Saturday event at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa.

The biggest stop in the month of May will see the stars of IRA headline the Great Lakes Shootout at Jackson (Minn.) Motorplex on May 15 before tentatively heading up to the Marion County Fairgrounds and legendary Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway to join Xtream Night powered by Mediacom on May 16 at the black dirt half-mile.

IRA will close the month of May with a tripleheader of action alongside the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions, set May 29-31 at Wilmot Raceway, Plymouth Dirt Track and Angell Park Speedway, respectively.

Angell Park’s traditional Corn Fest marquee special will be held Aug. 23 for the IRA sprint cars, while the tour’s 2020 season will close with the Wisconsin Championships at Plymouth Dirt Track on Sept. 26.

A second date is also tentative on the schedule as of press time, the Aug. 10 Front Row Challenge at Southern Iowa Speedway, while four dates – April 10, April 25, Aug. 29 and Sept. 4 – will be announced at a later date.

Bill Balog, from North Pole, Alaska, is the defending IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion.

Balog, the driver of the familiar No. 17b, picked up his record-tying ninth series championship in 2019 on the strength of nine victories for car owner Mike Urner.
