BEAVER DAM, WI (April 30, 2024) – When the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series returns to Beaver Dam Raceway for the two-day Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial, May 31-June 1, two big checks will be on the line.

First, drivers will contend for a $12,000 payday on Friday. Then, $20,000 will be on the line for Saturday’s Feature.

The weekend will be the Series’ first of six races in the “Badger State” this year. And the first of six chances for Wisconsin resident Bill Balog to score a home win.

Balog, who’s one of the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year contenders, has 22 victories at the 1/3-mile track, including a win with the World of Outlaws in 2016 – his first and only with the Series.

Last year, Giovanni Scelzi and Sheldon Haudenschild each picked up a Series win at Beaver Dam. Haudenschild has won four of the last five races there.
