The Wilmot Raceway will proudly host an IRA / All Star Challenge Event, featuring Tony Stewart on Friday, May 17th. The local stars of the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will take on the travelers of the Ollies Bargain Outlet/Mobil 1 All Star Circuit of Champions in a rare Friday night race date at Wilmot Raceway. 3-time NASCAR Champion Tony Stewart will make only his second ever Wilmot appearance, having competed in a USAC Sprint Car event at Wilmot nearly twenty years ago.
