Inclement weather forces Arctic Cat All Stars to postpone Wilmot appearance

WILMOT, WI – May 20, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  For the second time in as many days, Mother Nature erases any potential for Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions competition, this time forcing the cancellation of the Saturday night visit to Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin. Wet weather on Friday afternoon mixed with additional heavy rains on Saturday morning forced officials to pull the plug. All involved are now looking for a suitable rain date.

“It was just too much rain for the facility to handle,” Don Grabey explained, Arctic Cat All Stars Series Director. “A lot of rain fell on the area on Friday, and the additional rainfall today isn’t going to give us enough drying time to have a shot at making this program work. We are all looking for a suitable rain date. We hope to know more soon.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will now switch gears and turn their focus toward competition at the Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, on Sunday, May 21. The Arctic Cat All Star / IRA Sprint Car Series co-sanctioned program will be a first-ever at the one-third mile dirt oval. Pit gates are scheduled to open at 2:00pm on Sunday afternoon, followed by a mandatory drivers meeting at 4:30pm and hot laps at 5:30pm. Those seeking additional information should visit Angell Park Speedway live on the Web at www.angellparkspeedway.net.

About the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions

All Star Enterprises, LLC, wholly owned by Tony Stewart, d/b/a the All Star Circuit of Champions, is a winged sprint car series. The All-Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series is one of the oldest traveling 410 sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing.  Formed in 1970 by Bud Miller, the series has largely been considered the first ‘outlaw’ Sprint Car organization of the modern era. After a 10 year stint as owner of the All Stars, Miller passed control of the series to Bert Emick in 1980; a reign that would continue through 2002. Guy Webb then purchased the series from Emick in the summer of 2002 and served as the series President for the next 12 years.  Motorsports entrepreneur Tony Stewart agreed to terms with Guy Webb to become the sole owner of the original winged sprint car tour in January of 2015.
