Hartmann flashes speed, pushes ahead in IRA action at Angell Park Speedway

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 12, 2024 – A strong introduction and a solid conclusion could best describe Austin Hartmann and the 87A Hartmann Racing team’s performance in the seventh Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series event of the 2024 campaign with Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. serving as the competitive stage Sunday, June 9.

The fifth-year Sprint Car competitor opened the annual Norm Nelson Classic racing program by qualifying third in the 30-car field after ripping off a rapid lap of 12.569 seconds around the historic third-mile clay oval.

After lining up fourth in the third eight-lap IRA heat race, Hartmann found the going difficult on the dry slick track surface as he slipped back three spots to finish in seventh place at the checkered flag and missed transferring to the A-main by a single position.

The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Award recipient then started on the pole of the 10-lap IRA B-main and pulled away to post the victory by a full straightaway over Shelby Bosie.

After a complete reworking of the track surface, Hartmann lined up 18th in the 30-lap IRA A-main before falling back to 20th in the early going. Following an uneventful first half of the race, the Plymouth, Wis. native hit his stride in the second 15 laps of the event as he utilized the low groove to power past Danny Schlafer and Lance Fassbender on lap 16.

Two laps later, Hartmann ducked under Shelby Bosie and Van Gurley Jr. before wheeling past Will Gerrits on lap 22 to claim the 14th position in the running order. Hartmann then moved in to apply heavy pressure to Jett Mann in the closing stages of the race before settling for a 14th-place showing in the caution-free race, which was won by Scotty Thiel.

It was Hartmann’s fifth top-15 A-main showing in seven 2024 IRA events.

“We had a lot of ups and downs during the night,” Hartmann said. “The pill draw for qualifying was key for the track conditions. The heat race didn’t go in our favor. We regrouped and got our balance back in the car and salvaged a decent finish on the night. We got good notes for another night coming up at Wilmot this Saturday. We’ll keep digging!”

The 87A Hartmann Racing team was scheduled to compete in the fourth annual Road America Challenge IRA event at The Plymouth Dirt Track on Saturday, June 8. However, the event fell victim to rain.

Hartmann is slated to compete this Saturday, June 15 with the IRA Sprint Car Series at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wis. The Wisconsin wingLESS Sprint Cars, Street Stocks and Bandits are also on the card.

Spectator gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 5:45 p.m. and racing set to start at 6:45 p.m.

The sponsorship partners for the 2024 87A Hartmann Racing team include Kristine Hartmann of Pleasant View Realty, Shufflebotham Tree Service, Competition Specialists, Feldmann Sales & Service, Holler n Hills, Quasius Construction Inc., TheD8Dispensary, AF Inc., Metalcraft, Rich’s Truck and Auto Repair, Fastenal of Plymouth, Waldo Oil, RC Custom Design, Hepfner Racing Products, Maxim Chassis, Berryman Racing Shocks and My Race Pass.
