The Wilmot Raceway proudly announces its 2019 schedule for the third-mile Wisconsin dirt oval located on the Kenosha County Fairgrounds.

The only week Wilmot Raceway will sit quiet is that of August 10 as the facility preps for the Kenosha County Fair which will have motorsport activities throughout the Fair, Aug 14-18.
Numerous special events fill the schedule beginning May 4 as the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprints headline the first of the five appearances. Tony Stewart’s Ollies Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions co-sanctions the IRA / All Star Challenge on Friday night May 17.
