July 24, 2023 – One of the most anticipated dates on the Sprint Invaders schedule is the annual visit to the Dubuque Speedway and Dubuque County Fair. This Wednesday night, July 26, the series takes the banks of the 1/3-mile oval.

This marks the ninth straight season the Sprint Invaders have visited Dubuque, and the racing action has been exciting each time. Jamie Ball won the first event back in 2015, and he was followed by John Schulz in 2016. Dominic Scelzi won two years in a row (2017-18) declaring Dubuque as one of his favorite places ever to race. Other winners have included Wayne Johnson (2019), Seth Bergman (2020), Jonathan Cornell (2021) and Chase Randall (2022).

Mediapolis, Iowa’s Colton Fisher has just a one point advantage in the point standings over Ryan Bunton. Bret Tripplett, Cody Wehrle, the latest Sprint Invaders winner at Benton County Speedway, and Josh Higay round out the current top five in points. The event at Dubuque will pay $2,000 to win and $335 to start.

Admission is FREE with paid admission to the Dubuque County Fair. The fair opens at 10 a.m. Hot laps are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow. IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Mods and IMCA Hobby Stocks are also on the card. Fuel and tires will not be available at the track.
