Hartmann joins in Outlaws show, sights in Road America Challenge

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) June 4, 2024 – For the fifth time in his three-year 410 Sprint Car racing career, Austin Hartmann embraced the opportunity to compete with the best Sprint Car racers in the world and gain valuable experience in the process, during a NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series A-main event at Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis. on Friday, May 31.

The Plymouth, Wis. competitor, who began his 410 Sprint Car career in 2022, turned a lap of 11.915 seconds in qualifying to finish 24th overall in the 31-car field.

Hartmann then advanced from sixth to fifth in the fourth eight-lap WoO heat race to secure a direct transfer spot into the 30-lap NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws main event for the fifth time in his burgeoning career.

The 2020 Midwest Sprint Car Association and Plymouth Dirt Track Racing 360 Sprint Car Rookie of the Year Award recipient put together a consistent outing in the WoO headliner, while sticking primarily to the inside groove of the Beaver Dam Raceway third-mile facility.

Hartmann held strong for the entirety of the evening’s showcase race to claim a 21st-place finish in the 30-lap main event.

“We pulled the spare car down to get some notes on it,” Hartmann said. “The team is super happy with it. We’re excited and ready to chase a win as we head back to Plymouth this weekend for the Road America Challenge.”

The second half of the scheduled NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws doubleheader was scraped due to persistent rain and wet grounds at the Beaver Dam Raceway on Saturday, June 1.

Hartmann and the members of the 87A Hartmann Racing team are gearing up for Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association competition for the fourth annual Road America Challenge at The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. on Saturday, June 8. The PDTR-MSA 360 Sprint Cars and PDTR Grand Nationals are also on the card.

Spectator gates open at 4:30 p.m. with on-track action scheduled to commence at 5:30 p.m.

One night later, Hartmann is scheduled to visit Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie, Wis. for the second time in 2024 for the IRA Norm Nelson Classic on Sunday, June 9.

Spectator gates for the program, which also features the Badger Midgets, open at 4 p.m. with racing scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

All Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association events will be streamed live on FloRacing during the 2024 season.
