IRA Interstate Racing Association
2022 Series Schedule
The Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series is proud to announce their “tentative” 2022 schedule. The goal was to have a 30 race point schedule in place, and that has been accomplished. The series has many traditional stops and annual events, though three venues reappear on the schedule after a several year absence, and in the case of Sycamore Speedway (May 7), it has been over 30 years since IRA 410’s visited the popular northern Illinois bullring.
The series has had great success headlining several Wisconsin Fairs & Festivals and that will be the norm again beginning with the Outagamie County Fair (Seymour) on July 22, the Langlade County Fair (Antigo) July 29, the Kenosha County Fair / Roger Iles Tribute (Wilmot) Aug 20, Angell Park’s Corn Fest (Sun Prairie) Aug 21, and the Sheboygan County Fair (Plymouth) Sept 3.
IRA continues their strong relationship with the FLO Racing All Star Circuit of Champions as the duo will combine for four co-sanctioned events, May 14 at the Dirt Oval @ Route 66, and then again the following weekend May 20-22 with a trio of Wisconsin events at Wilmot, Plymouth, and Angell Park. The co-sanctions continue as IRA will be joined by MOWA on opening weekend April 1-2 as 34 Raceway will put on a early spring doubleheader. The two Midwest powerhouses combine again as the annual Bill Waite Jr Memorial moves to the popular Fairbury Speedway for the first time June 11th. And the newest co-sanction will be IRA making the long trek north for the first time since May 2003 when IRA legend Joe Roe topped the IRA / NOSA combo at the ultra-exciting River Cities Speedway (Grand Forks, ND) for the Buffalo Wild Wings King of the Wings July 15-16.
The Hopf Farms Bullring Showdown (series within a series) slated for the 141 and Plymouth venues begins May 29 at 141 Speedway, prior to three Plymouth dates beginning with the June 30 Road America “June Sprints on Dirt” kickoff June 30, the Frank Filskov Memorial July 30, the Sheboygan County Fair Sept 3, and concludes Sept 4 back at 141 Labor Day weekend.
Several popular highlights to the IRA schedule are annual marquee events such as the Norm Nelson Classic at Angell Park June 12, Founders Night at Wilmot July 23, the Harry Neitzel Tribute at the Dodge County Fairgrounds Sept 2, the Jerry Richert Memorial at the awesome Cedar Lake Speedway Sept 10, the Scott Semmelmann Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway Sept 17, the Checkered Classic at Dodge Co on Sept 23, and the season ending Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships at Plymouth Sept 24. The Fuzzy Fassbender Memorial, which has rained out at Dodge Co two consecutive years now, will be scheduled at a date to be determined in the first half of the season.
The IRA will return to the exciting Rice Lake Speedway for the first time in several years on Memorial weekend Saturday May 28. IRA intends to send some teams in non-point roles, to support Knoxville Raceway, the World of Outlaws at their Wisconsin dates, and Husets Speedway as the schedule allows.
The Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series can be found on FLOSportsTV. IRA would like to thank series sponsors Bumper To Bumper Auto Parts & Service Centers, Hoosier Tire, Osborn & Som Trucking, TW Metals, Cummins Onan, and Sage Fruit.
