                    “Challenge in the Northwoods” first at track since 1974

By Bryan Gapinski
Seymour, Wis., June 20---For the first time in over forty-years midget auto racing returns to Seymour Raceway Park on Sunday Night June 26. The Mid-State Equipment /Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie Badger Midget Racing Series invade the 1/3/ mile banked clay oval for the “Challenge in the Northwoods”.
       This season marks the 80th year of sanctioning midget auto racing for the organization, oldest in the country. Brandon Waelti winner of the most recent feature on June 19 at Angell Park Speedway is atop the series point standings heading into the event.
       The 600 micros are also on the evening’s events and will feature a co-sanctioned event by the POWRi North Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series presented by Cab Construction & Badger 600 Micro Series presented by My Race Pass. Norm Ehrke aims for his third straight feature victory.
        Badger sanctioned an event at Seymour on Saturday afternoon July 20, 1974 when the track was a half-mile in length. Kevin Olson won the feature finishing ahead of fast qualifier Bob Walldan, Jim Hill, Jim Clement and Bill Ripp. It also marked the first career Badger feature win of Olson’s Hall of Fame career.
        The two open wheel divisions join the tracks regular Sunday Night divisions: Street Stocks, IMCA Sport Mods, and Coors Light IMCA Stock Cars. Pits open at 3 p.m. with grandstands at 4 p.m. and racing begins at 6 p.m. Seymour Raceway Park is located on the Outagamie County Fairgrounds at 637 N.

Next week, Sunday June 26,the Badger Midgets and Micro 600 Sprints will join the regular program.     The Badger midgets are one of the oldest sanctioning bodies in the country and will be making a rare trek away from their home track in Sun Prairie.  This will be a full point event for both divisions.

The Month of July will be a busy one with the kick off being the Budweiser Summer Holiday Classic series on Sunday, July 3rd.    With the first race of the series rained out on Memorial Day, the IMCA Modifieds will be running here for the first time in 2016.         The event will see the Modifieds running a 30 lap feature with a $2000 pay day.  The event will be IMCA sanctioned.

Joining the big event. The IRA Outlaw Sprint Cars will be bringing their 50th Anniversary tour to Seymour Raceway Park for their only appearance in 2016.    Their main event will also see 30 of the quickest laps run during the season here.   Their last visit back in 2014 saw the feature go flag to flag in just under 8 minutes.

Filling out the evening will be our regular IMCA Sport Mod division running a regular point night.


The July 10th program will see the Grand National Stock Cars join the regular SRP weekly program.  It has been a couple years since the division has run here, and should be an exciting night.


The Vintage Milwaukee Stock Car Racing Association will return to SRP on Sunday July 17th.


The WDLMA Late Models will invade the banked 1/3 mile clay oval at SRP on Sunday July 24.    Their first appearance was supposed to be on the rained out Memorial Day event as well.   This event usually blends the best late model pilots in the area for a great night of racing along with our regular program.


Both the July 3 and 24th programs are part of the Kim Parsons Memorial Trophy Tour to help promote organ and tissue donations, so the BIG trophies will be up for grabs once again.    We THANK the tour for their continued support.

The end of July will see the NO racing due to the Annual Outagamie County Fair.
