BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 2, 2021) – Full steam ahead back to the Midwest, the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2021 campaign with a four-race stint through Illinois and Wisconsin, set to battle head-to-head with the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series at four tracks over four days beginning Thursday, June 3, at the legendary Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois.
The second of two All Star visits to the Land of Lincoln in 2021, Thursday’s Fairbury All Star versus IRA showcase will award a $5,000 top prize, as well as feature the All Star Circuit of Champions for the first time since June 7, 1995. Dale Blaney, now an All Star official, is the most recent open wheeler to find All Star victory lane at the world-famous Fairbury.
Venturing north into the Badger State, the All Stars versus IRA weekend will continue with three nights in southern Wisconsin, kicking-off officially on Friday, June 4, at the Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot. Action will move to the Plymouth Dirt Track at Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 5, followed by a Sunday night visit to Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie on June 6. All three Wisconsin blockbusters will feature $6,000-to-win main events.
Fresh off of his podium run during the $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway, “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will enter the four-race All Star/IRA sweep as the current All Star championship leader, on top of the driver standings by 74 points over Monrovia, Indiana’s Justin Peck. Peck, who scored two victories on the All Star trail thus far in 2021, owns a 20 point cushion over Ian Madsen, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg and Zeb Wise.
Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, ten-time IRA Outlaw Sprint Series champion and the IRA’s all-time leading winner, Bill Balog, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, open wheel veteran and Nashville native, Paul McMahan, and Neptune City, New Jersey’s Kyle Reinhardt currently sit sixth through tenth in the All Star driver title chase.
The IRA Outlaw Sprint Series will be represented by a stout contingent of nearly 20 competitors over the course of the weekend, led by current Series point leader and Illinois-native, Jake Blackhurst. Scott Neitzel is second in the IRA standings, followed by Danny Schlafer, Jeremy Schultz, and Russel Borland.
