4/23/2020
4/23/20 Just thought we'd try and update everyone as to auto racing's status right now as we deal with this COVID-19 disaster. The overwhelming majority of states have SaferAtHome rules in place, and most have a limit as to how many people can be at a gathering. With that being said, AS OF TODAY, all 3 IRA divisions with events scheduled in Wisconsin through May 26th are OFF based on the Governor's order. However we are NOT officially giving up on all of May yet. While we know that order is...more

We thought we'd try and update everyone again as to where we are regarding the start of our 2020 race season. Our Bumper To Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series would have completed 5 events so far, and will lose another May 9 due to Wisconsin's most recent government order. We are however, holding out hope for our May 15th race at the Jackson Motorplex. Despite the MN Governor recently extending the current order til May 18th, Jackson track owner Tod Quiring and GM Doug Johnson have been hard at...more
