World of Outlaws Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial at Beaver Dam Raceway: By the Numbers

BEAVER DAM, Wisc. — June 21, 2015 — The Sixth Annual Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial Presented by Karavan Trailers will see the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series hit the track at Beaver Dam Raceway on Saturday, June 27. Always one of the most anticipated stops on the schedule, three different drivers took turns leading the event last season at the high-banked, third-mile bullring.

In the end, it was Brad Sweet, standing in victory Lane. The Kasey Kahne Racing driver suffered a broken ankle less than a day earlier in a terrifying crash in Iowa and turned in what was one of the gutsiest drives in series history. The Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial has had four different winners in each of the last four years. Joey Saldana, who won the inaugural event in 2010, is the only two-time winner to date, while Sweet, Craig Dollansky and Kraig Kinser each have won the race once. To gear up for the Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial Presented by Karavan Trailers at Beaver Dam Raceway, here are some interesting facts and figures.

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. (June 24, 2015) – Mother Nature captured the original May 30 date for the NAPA Know How Summer Rumble at I-96 Speedway. But tonight the rescheduled race was completed and went into the history books.

After applying the World of Outlaws qualifying to heat race formula, Joey Saldana’s No. 11 qualifying position placed him on the pole of the second heat. Starting next to Saldana in the Motter Equipment HE&M Saw Beltline Body Shop 71M was his friend Paul McMahan, but make no mistake, when the two were racing for the same patch of dirt, their individual competitive natures prevailed.

Sides Caps World of Outlaws Tripleheader with Top 10 at Dakota State Fair Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – HURON, S.D. (June 22, 2015) – Jason Sides improved his result each race last week during a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series tripleheader in three different states.

Sides opened the week last Wednesday at Granite City Speedway in Sauk Rapids, Minn., where the World of Outlaws debut had been delayed one day because of weather.

“The first night we got there the track was looking hard and dry,” he said. “Then when it rained we came back the next night and it was so wet. They tilled it up trying to dry it out, but it stayed wet during hot laps. The car was tight so we tried to free it up for qualifying and we got a bit free. When we came back out for our heat race it got wet again.”

Triple Threat: Brad Sweet Picks up Third Win of the Season in NAPA Rumble in Michigan

Snaps Donny Schatz’s five-race Win Streak

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. – June 24, 2015 – Racing on the bullrings of his home state of California early in his career taught Brad Sweet how to negotiate some pretty intimidating cushions. A nearly foot and a half cushion that resembled more a ledge on Wednesday night at I-96 Speedway in Michigan didn’t faze Sweet, nor did a battle with six-time and defending series champion Donny Schatz.

Sweet used a slide job in turns one and two on lap 29 to take the lead from Schatz and withstood a number of late restarts to win the NAPA Auto Parts Rumble in Michigan which marked his third win of the season and first since April. Sweet, who was the final of three leaders on Wednesday night, became the sixth different winner in the last five races for the World of Outlaws at I-96 Speedway.
