A word from our sponsors: MSA sprints this week at Wilmot Raceway

The Wilmot Raceway expects another big field this Saturday. Coming off one of the largest car counts any track in the Midwest had last Saturday, this Saturday, June 25 has the Midwest Sprint Car Association winged warriors featured.

The MSA is usually found competing weekly at Manitowoc and Plymouth, however this week Wilmot is pleased to host a MSA point race. A full field is expected, and includes several racers who cut their sprint car teeth at Wilmot, including the Father & Son duo of Al & Danny Schlafer, Randy Sippel, young charger Jeremy Schultz, and many more.

Sprint car fans have plenty to look forward to at Wilmot Raceway as they have the MSA this Saturday, then the season really kicks in as Wilmot’s 410 Goodyear Sprints compete on July 2 and 8, and the traveling IRA series invades on the June 23 for the Roger Illes Tribute event. August has the Sprints every week as the Goodyear Sprints headline Aug. 6, 13, 19 during the Fair, while IRA headlines the July 20 during the Fair, with the Wilmot Sprints rounding out the month on the Aug. 27. A MSA /IRA combo sprint event concludes the season on Sept. 24 when the 2011 Wilmot Raceway Sprint Track Champion will be crowned.

Scott Kuxhouse, Mike Conn, Mike and Nick Simons, Joel Crowbridge, Lee Tibbits and many more hope to find Modified victory lane as Late Model racer turned Wilmot Mod racer Chris Carlson has come out quite impressively winning two of three Mod main events (Jason Hyerdall has other) thus far. Wilmot has one of the highest Mod car counts per week in the Midwest.

Wilmot Raceway is the home of 1200-cc Mini-Sprint racing in the upper-Midwest, and is proud to see the group growing. Todd Lehr edged Tim Brannam in a great side by side shootout this past Saturday.

The Street Stocks are another fixture at Wilmot with what appears to be the largest Street Stock field in the state. Multi-wide, fender to fender racing is the norm in this class. Three races and three winners in this competitive class.

Lastly it was great to see several newcomers come out in the F4 & P4 class last week. An all green main event was a late night highlight Saturday as they put on one of their best races ever.
