By Michael H. Babicz

The traditional Let’s Go Racing Motorsports Show presented by Babicz Auto Racing Services (BARS) is coming back to a new location Saturday, April 13.

Cars and drivers from Wilmot Raceway on the Kenosha County Fairgrounds will headline the race cars, custom and street rods along the streets and select parking areas of downtown Wilmot. The free show runs 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Main areas include the parking lot at Wilmot Auto Service/BP Convenience Store and across from Hansen Ice Cream Parlor.

Spectators are encouraged to greet the competitors and get a close preseason look at the machines which will be competing during the 2019 campaign.

“We are excited about the return of this sign of the beginning of the area motorsports season,” said Mike Babicz, show promoter and Wilmot Raceway track announcer/marketing director. “The cooperation of everyone from the business owners, the fair staff and Wilmot Raceway crew, as well as the drivers and their race teams, is greatly appreciated.”

Persons planning to participate are asked to contact Babicz at michaelbabicz@aol.com.

Steve Sinclair of Wilmot Raceway has indicated plans for a technical inspection at the show which is required for all cars prior to them hitting the 1/3-mile clay oval for the April 27 planned 2019 season opener.

Weather permitting, a practice may also be held following the show.

Coach Tim Stewart of Wilmot High School is planning some type of soccer exhibition/game in conjunction with the day’s events.

Additional information will be announced as it becomes available.

WILMOT RACEWAY ANNOUNCES 2019 SCHEDULE

By Steve Sinclair

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

Not many other tracks have a schedule as diverse and filled with quality specials, including both premier national and regional tours. Of course Wilmot’s weekly Saturday night card is unique as well as it is the only track that can call itself the home of the AutoMeter Wisconsin Sprint Series presented by Gandrud Chevrolet Performance Parts, and the WIMS Mini Sprints.

The wingLESS group which has had the most growth of any sprint car division anywhere in the country will compete at Wilmot 19 times in 2019. Plus Wilmot Raceway has a stellar Modified, Street Stock and 4-cylinder Bandit divisions. Wilmot Raceway opens the 2019 racing season April 27 and concludes its weekly racing on Sept. 7.

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.

The IRA winged 410’s will also appear June 15 for the Raymond Neeve Memorial, August 3 as a Kenosha County Fair prelude with the 5th Annual IRA Founder’s Night, and highlight their Wilmot Raceway season during the Fair with the annual Roger Iles Tribute event Aug 17th.

The 2nd annual Jim “Wildman” Watson Dirt King Late Model event is slated for Saturday night Sept 7. This is will be third consecutive year the Dirt King Tour has visited Wilmot Raceway. Note this popular event is one week earlier this year.
