19 cars signed in on Saturday 9-3-22 for Wilmot Raceway’s Championship Night where the track would crown 5 season champions across their core divisions.

Point leader Mike Neau drew the #2 pill which would put him starting the feature 4th and his Dream Chaser Racing teammate, Mark Heinert starting...more

17 cars made the trip to the Plymouth Dirt Track in support of the Wisconsin Sprint Car Championships where nearly 100 sprint cars across 4 divisions raced to decide who would be crowned champions for 2022.

2022 marks this club’s 32nd year of racing lightning sprints (mini sprints) across Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. While the club has operated under different leadership and different names during this span (WIMSA, WIMS, and currently ILS), our existence today and the longevity of the club is due to select people throughout those eras. We felt there was no better time than now to recognize this and so under the leadership of ILS board member Larry Neau, we have created the IRA Lightning...more

The Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints completed a successful Wisconsin doubleheader this past Memorial Day weekend May 28-29, going from northwest to northeast as they kicked off their weekend at the banked wide third-mile Rice Lake Speedway.

Russ Borland set quick time over the 20 car field- and raced his way to the lead early in the 30 lap A-main by overtaking...more

We regret to inform everyone the difficult and unwanted decision to cancel tonight's races at Wilmot Raceway has been made. The combination of poor weather outlook, already saturated grounds, cool temperatures, fuel prices and tire difficulties are the contributing factors to this decision. We hope to see everyone next week for the IRA / MOWA co-sanctioned show at Fairbury Speedway. This is truly one of the nicest and friendliest facilities in the country. This will be a big show for everyone...more
