IRA Outlaw and MSA 360 Sprints this Friday, August 5 at Fairgrounds Speedway

Aug 04, 2016 06:35AM ● Published by Dale Norenberg

A very busy two months lie ahead at the 2016 title chase for the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint series begins to come into focus.  This weekend’s SCAG Shootout and then the 20th Annual Frank Filskov Memorial race are the next rungs on the ladder to the 2016 championship.

There is a wide variety of tracks on the remaining schedule and this weekends events at the Dodge County Fairgrounds on Friday night and the Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, will require two vastly different driving styles for the teams of the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint series.

The point battle, which began brewing 17 events ago, is gathering steam and currently a trio of title contenders has separated themselves from their rivals.  This weekend will test their adaptability.

Scotty Thiel currently tops the point charts by a scant 11 markers over two-time Wilmot Raceway champ and 2013 IRA Rookie of the year Jeremy Schultz.  Cagey veteran Scotty Neitzel, who already has two IRA crowns to his credit is poised for a title run down the stretch as he is only 70 points out of the top spots. Neitzel has historically been at his best as a season nears it’s conclusion.

The first stop this weekend takes place on Friday Night, August 5th will be a trip to the wide open Dodge County Fairgrounds for the SCAG Shootout.  The big half-mile oval rewards a heavy right foot and nerves of steel as the 900 horsepower winged sprints surpass the 130mph mark on the long straights. 

Dodge County is unique in the fact the events typically draw in outside cars, true Outlaw racers who travel to win prize money.  It’s these outsiders that the IRA teams will have to beat to earn the top prize.  For Thiel, Schultz and Neitzel defending the home turf might be the biggest challenge of the upcoming weekend.

The Dodge County Fairground event the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints will be joined by the MSA/PDTR 360’s and area IMCA Type Modifieds.

The Dodge County Fairgrounds is located on highway 33, just 2 miles east of Beaver Dam and just west of highway 26.
