SUN PRAIRIE, WI – May 21, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  An evening rain shower just after qualifying time trials forced Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions and IRA Sprint Car Series officials to cancel the remaining portions of the Sunday night program at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. The event will be made up on Thursday, June 8, featuring the IRA Sprint Car Series, as well as Tony Stewart. The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will announce their participation, if possible, in the coming days.

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.
