IRA OUTLAWS, BOUNTY HUNTERS WANTED FOR 141 SPEEDWAY MAY 26
($500 bounty to anyone who can beat Gregg Haese in Brian Peterson Builders Grand Nationals)
(Francis Creek, WI) May 21 – The fastest machines on dirt in the Midwest, the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw sprint car series, will invade 141 Speedway’s high-banked, third mile clay oval Sunday May 26 at 6 p.m.
Last year Fredonia’s Mike Kertscher clocked the first sub-eleven second lap with a 10.750. Kertscher also won at 141 last year, with IRA champion Billy Balog capturing A main events as well. Teams from well over eight hours away have indicated they’ll be competing at 141, including a handful of Illinois-based teams, including Springfield, Illinois’ Jordan Goldesberry. The winged machines pack close to 900 horsepower under the hood.
In addition, a $500 bounty is on the line for any Brian Peterson Builders Grand National driver who can beat Francis Creek’s Gregg Haese. Haese has won back-to-back features at 141. Haese must be running competitively at the end of the race for a driver to collect the bonus cash. A draw-redraw format will be used for both the Grand Nationals and the Tisler Salvage street stocks, which will also pay $500 to the winner in a non-points night. The Grand Nationals will be a non-points night as well.
The Haese bounty is sponsored by Bill’s Auto of Manitowoc, Country Visions Co-Op in Reedsville, Performance Motorsports of Whitelaw and Track Wizard Merle Lisowe.
Gates open at 4 pm with action on the track getting underway at 6 p.m. Adult admission is $20 while students 8-11 yrs $5 and 7yrs and under free.
