IRA Interstate Racing Association


Balog Rolls to the Top of the Prairie

Balog and Schuett would lead the field to the green for 30 circuits around Angell Park Speedway. The 17B would immediately take charge of the cushion as he would take the lead early. Schuett would keep him within striking distance. Blackhurst, Hampton, and Goldesberry would try to follow behind the two as they began to weave through traffic.

Kyle Schuett would soon get sucked up by the cushion, allowing the 96 of Blackhurst to move into second. Twenty to go, it’s been Balog on a mission to the checkered. Blackhurst and Hampton’s job would be to play catch up. Caution would wave on lap 11 for the 9K machine who rolled to a stop in turn one.

Balog, Blackhurst, Hampton, Goldsberry, and Schlafer would be the top five on the restart. Out of one, Blackhurst would try to sneak a pass, but it wouldn’t stick and allow Hampton to slide by. The fight for second would be on. Balog would continue to lead the field, leaving the rest of the field behind him.

Ten laps would remain for the 10 time champion as he continued to count down the laps. Hampton would reel in Balog for a chance to snag the lead, with 8 laps to go. Blackhurts would sneak around Hampton on the cushion to pass for second and try to make a move on Balog. Blackhurst would get it pushed into the cushion and bring out our yellow flag with some front end damage with six laps to go.

Rerack the field and crack the whip one more time. Balog has a rear-view mirror full of competitors like Hampton and the defending champion Jordan Goldesberry. It was clear air for the Nightmare, as he counted down the laps to the white then checkered. Hampton would cross the line second, and Goldesberry third.

The action isn’t stopping anytime soon. The Bumper to Bumper IRA Sprints head into yet another double-header weekend. Saturday May 27th Wilmot Raceway Hosts an Open Wheel Spectacular featuring the IRA Sprints, Badger Midgets, and the MSA Sprints. Sunday, May 28th hosts “Sunday Funday” at 141 Speedway.
