IRA invades 141 Speedway – May 28, 2017
Sunday, the teams head south to the unique 141 Speedway. The high banked 1/3rd mile oval hosted its first IRA event in 2010 and quickly became a fan favorite.
Bill Balog has won 8 of the last 10 events at the formerly paved oval. His strongest challenge on Sunday night will likely come from the Meyer Electric 85m piloted by Steve Meyer. Meyer who currently sits 4th in points has shown great speed all season and is always in contention to win at 141 Speedway.
Another likely challenge could come from Aurora, Illinois’ Blake Nimee. Nimee’s 79 team has had great speed all year, including setting fast time at Beaver Dam Raceway earlier this year but mechanical issues have plagued the team thus far. With the mechanical gremlins ironed out for this weekend Nimee is sure to be a front runner.
