Travis Arenz Motorsports to tackle full 2023 IRA 410 Sprint Car Series slate

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) March 8, 2023 – On the heels of back-to-back championship-winning seasons in the 360 Sprint Car ranks, Travis Arenz of Sheboygan Falls, Wis. is gearing up to focus on 410 Sprint Car action with his Travis Arenz Motorsports team intending to hit the road to contend for Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series rookie of the year accolades, during the upcoming 2023 season.

Arenz heads into his 16th season of racing action and his first full season of 410 Sprint Car competition after nailing down the 2021 and 2022 Midwest Sprint Car Association (MSA) and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing (PDTR) 360 Sprint Car titles.

During the 2022 MSA-PDTR 360 Sprint Car season, Arenz racked up eight A-main victories, 17 top-five and 18-top-10 A-main showings, five heat race wins and two fast qualifier awards in 19 official events en route to the MSA and PDTR championships.

Arenz also competed in seven 410 Sprint Car events with the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association Sprint Car Series in 2022, earning one top-five, three top-10 and four top-15 A-main showings, three dash appearances and one dash victory to finish 25th in the final 2022 IRA point standings.

The highlight of Arenz's 2022 410 Sprint Car campaign was an IRA career-best second place A-main finish at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. on Saturday, Aug. 27.

To date, Arenz has amassed a total of 70 career A-main victories, including 30 MSA/PDTR 360 Sprint Car wins, 20 IMCA Northern Sport Mod/PDTR B Mod A-main triumphs and 20 4-Cylinder Outlaw Compact A-main victories, to go along with six series and track championships, including the 2013 4-Cylinder Outlaw Compact title at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. and the 2016 Northern Sport Mod championship at 141 Speedway in Francis Creek, Wis., as well as two MSA 360 Sprint Car (2021, 2022) and a pair of PDTR 360 Sprint Car (2021, 2022) crowns.

Arenz will launch his rookie IRA 410 Sprint Car campaign, which features 32 races at 16 different tracks in six states, 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.

“As a team, we are looking forward to the challenge of running a full season with the IRA,” Arenz said. “As a racer, I’m excited to try the next level of competition.”

In addition to a full schedule of 410 Sprint Car action with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Series, Arenz is also planning to enter a handful of Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car events during the 2023 campaign.

“Along with the IRA schedule, there will be a mix of 360 races as well, which will mainly be decided as we go through the season,” Arenz said. “At this point, there will be three nights at Plymouth where we are planning to have both cars. Overall, I’m looking at doing roughly eight races with the 360.”
