Hartmann’s sophomore 410 Sprint Car season nets second top-10 IRA points showing

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) November 29, 2023 – After a completing a promising rookie Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series campaign in 2022 in just his third year behind the wheel of a race car, Austin Hartmann came back to register a solid second season in the seat of the 87A Hartmann Racing 410 Sprint Car during the 2023 campaign.

In all, Hartmann’s demanding six-month 2023 season schedule featured trips to 14 different tracks in six states with the team placing ninth in the final IRA point standings. Along with completing the full IRA slate, Hartmann mixed in additional races with the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws 410 Sprint Car Series and Tezos All Star Circuit of Champion 410 Sprint Car Series, while sprinkling in non-sanctioned events at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. and Butler Speedway in Quincy, Mich.

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 his second full season of IRA 410 Sprint Car Series action one spot better with a ninth place showing in the final 2023 point standings.

The Plymouth, Wis. driver opened the 2023 IRA schedule with a ninth place effort in B-main competition at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa on April 7 before placing sixth in B-main action on April 8.

After finishing fifth in the second IRA dash to claim the 10th A-main starting spot in the 30-lap A-main event at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on April 15, Hartmann did not turn another competitive lap for the remainder of the program. Shortly after pushing off for the 30-lap A main, a broken component in the driveline of the 87A Hartmann Racing machine forced Hartmann to leave the track and retire to the pit area for the remainder of the event. He was listed 22nd in the final race rundown.

The highlight of Hartmann’s 2023 season followed on May 6 as he turned in a career-best fifth place showing in a non-sanctioned 410 Sprint Car A-main event at Wilmot Raceway.

A doubleheader weekend of competition with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions netted a ninth place B main showing at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill. on Friday, May 12 and a 20th place A-main finish in a co-sanctioned All Star-IRA event at Wilmot Raceway on Saturday, May 13.

Hartmann’s best A-main showing of the 2023 IRA season came one week later as he turned in an eighth place finish at The Plymouth Dirt Track on May 20.

The ensuing three IRA events netted a 17th place finish at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. on May 21, a 12th place showing at Wilmot Raceway on May 27 and a 13th place finish at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, Wis. on May 28.

Another doubleheader weekend of Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions action resulted in a 10th place B-main showing at the Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, June 2 before Hartmann came home 25th in the annual Rayce Rudeen Foundation A-main event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, June 3.

The following weekend saw Hartmann tally a pair of top-15 A-main finishes in IRA competition as he came home ninth at Sycamore Speedway in Maple Grove, Ill. on June 10 and placed 12th at Angell Park Speedway on June 11.

Hartmann joined the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Series for a pair of events at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on June 16-17, coming away with 20th place finishes in both A-main events.

After taking 10th place in IRA A-main competition at Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Ill. on June 24, Hartmann finished 15th in IRA main event action at The Plymouth Dirt Track on July 1.

A stirring heat race run saw Hartmann qualify directly into a NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Series A main at Wilmot Raceway on July 8. A lap 6 heat race pass for fifth place earned Hartmann his third World of Outlaws series A-main start of the 2023 season and his first interview with World of Outlaws Pit Reporter Chase Raudman before capping the night with a 19th place finish in A-main action.

A long trip to Minnesota and North Dakota followed with Hartmann placing 19th in IRA A-main action at I-94 emr Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minn. on July 13 before taking 10th in main event competition at River Cities Speedway in Grand Forks, N.D. on July 14 and a 20th place A-main finish on July 15.

After qualifying third in the 25-lap field, rain washed out main event action at Outagamie Speedway in Seymour, Wis. on July 21, Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team notched a strong sixth place A-main showing in a non-sanctioned 410 Sprint Car event at Butler Speedway in Quincy, Mich, on July 22.

Hartmann then posted 22nd and 19th place A-main finishes in IRA events at The Plymouth Dirt Track and Wilmot Raceway respectively on July 28 and July 29.

Following a two-week break from competition, Hartmann finished 10th in an IRA B main at Wilmot Raceway on Aug. 19 before placing 14th in an IRA A main at Angell Park on Aug. 20.

Hartmann escaped without injury, following a hard crash and ensuing fire in his No. 87 machine, during IRA heat race action at 34 Raceway on Aug. 25.

The final month of the 2023 season saw Hartmann record top-20 A-main finishes in IRA events at Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway on Sept. 1 (19th), The Plymouth Dirt Track on Sept. 2 (19th), Gondik Law Speedway in Superior, Wis. on Sept. 8 (15th), Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis. on Sept. 9 (15th) and The Plymouth Dirt Track on Sept. 30 (20th).

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors, crew members, family, friends and fans, who have helped me live out my dream of racing a 410 Sprint Car at track across the Midwest,” Hartmann said. “I appreciate everything they have done over the past two years.”
