Tony Stewart to race with IRA Sprint Cars July 7

Jul 05, 2017 09:40PM ● Published by Dale Norenberg

On Friday night July 7, Tony Stewart joins the stars and cars of the IRA 410 Outlaw Sprint Cars at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in what will be a huge night of racing, in honor of Harry Neitzel. The IRA will be joined by both the MSA 360 sprint cars as well as the Dirt Kings Late Models as we pay tribute to the longtime supporter of Wisconsin auto racing and the father of 2-time series champion Scotty Neitzel.

The IRA sanctioned Harry Neitzel Tribute / Rick Schmidt Memorial race scheduled for this Friday night July 7th at the Dodge County Fairgrounds (just east of Beaver Dam, WI) just got even bigger. As if having the Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series, MSA 360 Sprints, Dirt King Late Models, and Tony Stewart weren’t enough, we’ve got a few other goodies to add to the show. For fans, a good field of Vintage Modifieds will be on hand creating a festival atmosphere behind the bleacher area. Of course the IRA & Tony Stewart merchandise trailers will be on hand, as well as a special Harry Neitzel Tribute event shirt will be available. And for the racers, there are increased purses for both the IRA & MSA courtesy of Hagar Nelson’s Half Pound Cookies. Additionally, the IRA main event will pay AT LEAST $3000 to win, $2000 for second, and $1500 for third. And the winner has a chance to make even more depending upon Hagar’s famous dice roll. And speaking of dice roll, a random driver will be selected at the Driver’s Meeting that will have the chance to earn up to an additional $900 on top of their winnings. And were not done, as several IRA & MSA teams will go home with some additional product contingency awards. Who doesn’t like cash and prizes!

Pits will open at 3, and spectator gates at 4:30. Warm Ups will begin at 6:00, followed by IRA Qualifying, Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for 7:15.
Ticket prices will be: Adults $25, kids 6-12 yrs $5, kids 5 & under FREE. Pit Pass $30

The IRA would like to thank our wonderful sponsors, Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts, Osborn and Son Trucking, TW Metals, Carriage Auto Body, Cummins Onan, Hopf Farms, Hagar’s Half Pound Cookies and Hoosier Tire.
