"72nd Opening Night at Angell Park Speedway - May 20” "All Stars & IRA Sprint Cars, Badger Midgets on race slate”

5/16/2018

Sun Prairie, Wis., May 16---A diversified schedule highlights the seventy-second year of racing at Angell Park Speedway which begins, Sunday Night May 20. The event is the first of the nine-race season at the popular 1/3-mile clay oval.

The event will feature a complete program for the Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie Badger Midget Series which will appear at all nine events this season. The event will be co-sanctioned with the POWRi Lucas Oil Regional Midget Series. Bill Balog won the Badger season opener on April 29 at Beaver Dam Raceway. Grandstand seating opens at 3:30 pm; practice at 6:00 pm; racing to follow.

The season's first “Badger driver meet & greet" will take place at the Badger Fan Club Souvenir trailer for 30 minutes behind the grandstand starting at 5:20 pm. This will give fans the opportunity to meet their favorite drivers. The BMARA Fan Club Kids Club will be giving away two bikes at every race this season.

Sunday’s “Tony Stewart Sprint Spectacular” features an IRA Bumper to Bumper Outlaw Sprint Car Series and The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions co-sanctioned event. Stewart and 2015 Pepsi Midget Nationals champion Rico Abreu are also slated to compete.

Other sanctioning bodies competing during the season at the track include: POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Car Series, POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint Car League, MSA 360 Winged Sprints, Wisconsin Dirt Legends, and Vintage Modified Association.
Here are some points of interest for this weekend’s opener:

Miles Melius, Kevin Doty, Dan Boorse, and Jerry Coons with three each. Two-time winners are: Boyd Calvert, Marty Davis, Davey Ray, Brad Kuhn and Scott Hatton.
