Hartmann wraps up 2023 IRA 410 Sprint Car campaign with top-10 points distinction
(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) October 4, 2023 – The grueling six-month Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series schedule, which featured trips to 14 different tracks in six states, drew to a close for Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team with a rock solid ninth place showing in the final point standings, following the sixth annual Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, Sept. 30.
The Plymouth, Wis. driver opened the night by qualifying 25th overall in the 38-car field with a lap of 11.696 seconds. The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing Rookie of the Year Award winner used a strong start to work past Will Armitage on the drop of the green flag of the fourth eight-lap IRA heat race. Hartmann held down the fifth spot the rest of the way to advance to the 30-lap Rick Schmidt Memorial IRA A main.
After rolling off 20th in the 30-lap IRA 410 Sprint Car Series A main, Hartmann drove a smooth race to come home with a 20th place showing.
In 33 410 Sprint Car events during the 2023 season, Hartmann tallied one top-five, six top-10 and 12 top-15 A-main showings, while recording two heat race victories and six IRA dash appearances.
After turning in a 10th place showing in the 2022 IRA 410 Sprint Car Series point standings during his rookie season, Hartmann closed out the 2023 IRA 410 Sprint Car Series season one spot better in ninth place in the final point standings.
“I would like to thank all of the sponsors, crew members, friends and family, who have supported myself and the team during the course of the season,” Hartmann said. “I wouldn't have the opportunity to do this without the help of each of them.”
