With Kenosha County Fair bragging rights on the horizon, Family Night action has acted as a prelim the past few weeks. In Don’s Auto & Machine Modified action it was former track champion Mike Sullivan picking up the win the past Saturday. Sullivan was chased to the line by another former champ in Chris Carlson, with Joel Crowbridge, Jason Hyerdall, and Lee Sohns completing a fast top five. On August 3rd Don Scheffler invaded Wilmot Raceway and scored the victory over Cameron Kuxhouse, Chris Carlson, Steve Mueller, and Jeff Bodendorfer.
R.A. Adams Enterprises / Advance Auto Parts Street Stock action has been quite competitive despite Charlie Pinkalla visiting Wilmot’s victory lane on a frequent basis. Pinkalla won again this past Saturday in a feature event only slowed once by caution. Pinkalla topped Dustin Richards, Ronnie Mink, Mark Baker, and Jason Condrad. On August 3rd it was Pinkalla yet again, this time leading Mink, Richards, Jim Vandervere, and Baker to the stripe.
Erik Groesch scored the Pro 4 win back on August 3rd topping Scott Redden, Josh McCoy, Dennis Carlton, and Joe Summers while Rob Ehlenburg took the Bandit 4 win over Brandon Feit, Shawn Kasten, Ashley Penek, and AJ Izzo.
The Kenosha County Fair races are a definite highlight on the Wilmot Raceway schedule each year. This year the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series headlines both Friday & Saturday of the fair. Just a $5 grandstand admission on top of a $9 Fair admission creates an absolute bargain for fair going fans. Multi-time IRA Champ Bill Balog leads IRA stars like Mike Kertscher, Tommy Sexton, Jerremy Schultz, Scotty Neitzel, Scott & Dave Uttech, Phillip Mock, Russel Borland, Bill Wirth and a cast of over 30 to Wilmot this weekend. The IRA loyal are expected to be challenged by several travelers who will embark on Wilmot for the big two-day Roger Iles Tribute / Kenosha County Fair weekend. Regretfully “Smoke” Tony Stewart has had to withdraw his entry from Friday’s IRA action as he suffered double compound fractures to his right leg in a horrifying crash at the Southern Iowa Speedway last Monday. The 3-time NASCAR Champion is out indefinitely due to the seriousness of this injury which has required two major surgeries to date. Despite “Smokes” absence a very talented regional field sprinkled with some “outside” challengers will take to Wilmot this weekend in hopes of some KCF glory and the rich Roger Iles pay day.
Joing IRA on Friday will be the thunderous Don’s Auto & Machine Modifieds, plus the 4 cylinder combo of the Massive Speed Pro 4’s and the Hawg Heaven Bandit 4’s. Saturday has the IRA Outlaws headlining with the R.A. Adams / Advance Auto Parts Street Stocks, Fec’s Place / Outlaw Race Parts Mini Sprints, and Vintage Mods in support roles.
