Seymour, July 9 – Seymour Raceway Park is the place to be tomorrow, Sunday July 10, for a full night of racing action on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval.  

The forecast is for another beautiful summer evening to enjoy all of the excitement that only dirt track racing can provide.


The Grand National Stock Cars are joining the regular program of Street Stock, IMCA Sport Mod and Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars this week.

A “discussion” on who would be better between the Street Stocks and Grand Nationals has spawned a Grudge Race which will pit three GN cars from the Richards Racing team shop against a SS team of current SRP point leader, Jeff Jungwirth, Steve Ecker and a yet to be named third driver.      

 The race will be a 6 lap event run after their respective features and the IMCA Sport Mod main event.    The Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars will  follow.

 It has been a couple years since the GN cars were at Seymour and so the experience of the SS would seem to give that division the upper hand.  But, Ecker, has not run here, but is been a top runner at Oshkosh, along with Jungwirth.    And the yet to be named third driver is the wild card.  

Even though set up in the spirit of competition, it will still be serious business once the green flag waves.     Besides a trophy for the winner, more importantly, will be the bragging rights that will go along with it.

Seymour July 3- 8:30 AM – Today, Sunday July 3rd, is going to be a great day and what better way to celebrate than taking in the Budweiser Summer Holiday Classic tonight at Seymour Raceway Park.   


The Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Cars bring their 50th Anniversary Tour to SRP for the only time in 2016.  Bumper to Bumper of Seymour is the associate sponsor for this event.       

A full field is expected to compete and the series has posted a very competitive season so far.    

Scotty Neitzel is the most recent winner making a last lap charge to win his first feature this season at Manitowoc Friday night.    

Billy Balog, the winner here in the last IRA visit in 2014, is the series 7 time champion, and  is hot off a first career WOO Sprint Car feature win at Beaver Dam a week ago.  Balog will be returning Sunday to defend his victory.

These are just 2 of the star studded field expected to challenge the banked 1/3 mile clay oval.    Their last appearance also produced a spectacular non-stop 30 lap main event  that completed in just under 8 minutes.   


Joining the big night will be the first appearance of the IMCA Modifieds.            With the first Holiday Classic series event rained out on Memorial Day, this race will be the first of a now, 2 race series which will conclude on Labor Day weekend.  Tonights event will see a 30 lap feature top the night with $2000 to the winner out of over $21000 in posted awards.

The Modifieds will draw for heat positions and use passing points for the feature and final qualifying events.       This is IMCA Sanctioned.

Rounding out the field tonight will be the IMCA Sport Mods.    Their portion will use the normal weekly point average lineups.  It is a full point night.


Payoff will be made following the racing program.
