IRA Interstate Racing Association


Balog Wins Roger Iles Tribute

After doing battle with Tony Stewart’s All Star Circuit of Champions on Friday night, the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association sprint cars returned to the Wilmot Raceway for the 36 lap Roger Iles Tribute. Mike Reinke set quick time in Osborn and Son Trucking qualifications behind the wheel of the Bob Hood owned 10w. Blake Nimee after an impressive performance on Friday night was second quick over Jake Blackhurst, Todd Daun and Jeremy Schultz.

Heat race one saw Reinke charge from the fourth starting position to the lead, picking up the win. Behind him Scotty Thiel piloted the Oz Motorsports 73AF to second followed by Dave Uttech and former Wilmot Raceway track champion Todd Daun. Sussex Wisconsin driver Danny Schlafer rounded out the top 5.

The second heat race was won by Blake Nimee, also coming from the fourth starting spot. Jordan Goldesberry brought his Rock Solid Lawn and Landscape 65 home in second followed by Jeremy Schultz, Scott Biertzer and Sean Rayhall.

The third and final heat race was claimed by Bill Balog from third over Russel Borland. Jake Blackhurst crossed in third over Scott Neitzel and “Mojo” Wayne Modjeski.

The first dash to set the A main lineup saw Mike Reinke use his outside front row starting spot to grab the lead and take the win, setting up the possibility of a sweep of the night. Thiel finished in second with Balog in third, Jeremy Schutlz in fourth and Jordan Goldesberry in fifth.

The second dash, setting the outside first five rows of the A saw Dave Uttech claim the win and front row starting spot over Jake Blackhurst and Blake Nimee. Modjeski and Todd Daun Rounded out the top five.

The A main saw the Bob Hood owned 10w piloted by Reinke take the early lead. Reinke lead over Balog who had charged from the 5th starting spot as they entered lapped traffic on lap nine. Reinke was utilizing the bottom of the Wilmot Raceway while Balog pounded the cushion around the outside. As they reached lapped traffic, the back of the field was all running the bottom. Reinke entered turn one in the middle trying to work his way past the lapped traffic, but Balog was able to carry more momentum through the corner and take the lead. Once Balog had claimed the lead he was able to set sail and claim another victory. Mike Reinke settled for second followed by Blake Nimee, Jeremy Schultz, and Jake Blackhurst.
Special thanks to Carriage Auto Body and Ken Iles for making this event a success!! We really appreciate all that you do.
