Austin Hartmann-87A Hartmann Racing to fire up second full IRA tour at 34 Raceway
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) March 22, 2023 – After turning in a 10th place showing in their rookie season of Winged 410 Sprint Car action with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association Sprint Car Series in 2022, Austin Hartmann and the members of the 87A Hartmann Racing team are ready to embark on another full season of competition against the Upper Midwest’s top 410 Sprint Car drivers and teams during the upcoming 2023 IRA campaign.
Hartmann’s five-and-a-half-month 2022 campaign racing wheel to wheel with many of the nation’s top 410 Sprint Car drivers at 13 different tracks in three states saw the Plymouth, Wis native enter 26 events, including 24 IRA races.
During his first year behind the wheel of a 410 Sprint Car in 2022, the 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car rookie of the year earned one top-10, eight top-15 and 17 top-20 A-main showings in 22 A-main appearances on the way to a 10th place finish in the 2022 IRA point standings. In addition, Hartmann posted one heat race victory, one B-main triumph, one fast qualifier award and six dash appearances during his initial IRA campaign.
The highlights of Hartmann’s 2022 season included qualifying for his first career NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Series A main at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on June 18, claiming his first career IRA fast qualifier award at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Sept. 3 and turning in a career-best sixth-place IRA A main showing in the Scott Semmelmann Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway on Sept. 17.
The Hartmann 87A Racing team’s 2023 schedule features 37 races at 17 different tracks in six states, including 32 IRA events. The 2023 campaign will kick off with an IRA-Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) co-sanctioned doubleheader event at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa on Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8.
The 87A Hartmann Racing team also plans to enter three NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series events during the 2023 campaign, including a NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series doubleheader at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17 and another NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws event at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. on Saturday, July 8.
Also on the team’s 2023 racing slate is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions Series event at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. on Friday, May 12 and a return visit to Jacksonville Speedway with the POWRi 410 Outlaw Sprints League during Illinois Speed Week on Friday, June 23.
“I am very excited to get the 2023 season going and running the entire IRA Series schedule is again in our plans this year,” Hartmann said. “The team is eager to apply what we learned during our rookie season with the 410 and with the IRA last year and work on improving on our consistency in the main events during the 2023 season.”
