Seymour August 17- 9AM- Today is THE day. And what a day it is going to be. The unusual August weather has a sunny , cool day forecast for today which will make it a PERFECT day to spend at the Seymour Speedway for a BIG night of racing action.
The high powered 410 IRA Sprint Cars return to the Seymour Speedway TODAY along with the five weekly divisions for a BIG night of racing on the fine 1/3 mile banked oval . All this action brought to you by Bumper to Bumper of Seymour.
The IRA Sprinters last visited the Seymour Speedway in 2008 and Australian National Champion, Brooke Tatnell, carried the winners trophy home. In 2007, Mike Reinke visited victory lane after running a non-stop 30 lap event in just under 8 minutes.
IRA is coming off back to back nights racing at Wilmot and will be trekking north for this much anticipated return to Seymour.
Our regular weekly divisions, Budweiser IMCA Modifieds, Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars, Turbo Blue Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Mods and 4 Cylinders will also compete in a unique format tonight.
The top 10 in points are locked in to their feature event, with the point leader starting 10th. The drivers out of the top 10, will run qualifying event/s to fill the feature field. This has never been done in Northeastern Wisconsin, but is an IMCA standard in other places. It was suggested by one of the drivers to try and the club felt the IRA night would be the perfect fit, to allow all divisions to compete without worrying about curfew bringing in another complete program. It is a full point night for all divisions and should make for an interesting twist to the great racing Seymour has had this season. Spectator Eliminators are also on the program tonight for a full night of action.
