Wilmot, WI (July 25th, 2015) – Dale Blaney concluded the UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions road trip through Michigan and Wisconsin with yet another main event victory; this time during the All Star/IRA “Sprintacular” at the Wilmot Raceway near Wilmot, Wisconsin. The current UNOH All Star point leader earned the $5,000 “Sprintacular” payday on Saturday, July 25th, over a stacked field of 38 Bumper-to-Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series and UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars. Blaney survived two cautions during main event competition, as well as periods of heavy lapped traffic and a last-ditch effort slide job by Cody Darrah to earn his eighth UNOH All Star victory of the 2015 season. “The Lowrider” now has 123 career series victories.


“It was a pretty good night for us” said Blaney, “I just want to thank all of my guys. They work really hard and give me a great car. It’s always special to get back to victory lane.”


Dale Blaney and Blake Nimee led the field to green at Wilmot Raceway. Nimee, who entered the evening sixth in the current IRA Outlaw Sprint Series point standings, controlled the first four circuits of the 30-lap program before losing the top spot to Dale Blaney. The pilot of the GoMuddy.com, Big Game Treestands, CH Motorsports, #1 paced the field until the main event’s first caution on lap ten for Ryan Irwin.


Green flag conditions would return with Dale Blaney setting the tone out front. Cody Darrah, who started sixth on the main event grid, worked his way forward and chased Blaney for the next 13 laps; navigating heavy traffic until the caution lights reappeared  for Kyle Martin with 23 laps in the books. Blaney brought the field back to green once again with only seven circuits remaining. Despite clean air and an open track for the defending UNOH All Star champion, Darrah still managed to keep pace with “The Lowrider” and would attempt one last slide job to take over the top spot with less than five laps remaining. Darrah, a Red Lion, Pennsylvania native, completed the textbook slider, but could not make it stick, as Blaney was able to drive back around the familiar J&K Salvage, #89. Blaney would go on to win the All Star/IRA “Sprintacular” at Wilmot Raceway with Cody Darrah hanging on to finish second.


“We just tried to fill the holes” said Blaney, “I knew Cody (Darrah) was going to work as hard as he could to get around me. I just tried to make myself wide and fill in all of the holes.”


“We had a good night tonight and a pretty good weekend all together” Darrah said, “The track was pretty tricky tonight. The cushion was a little too technical for me to make it work. Hats off to my guys. They work hard and it shows.”


Greg Wilson, the 2015 Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Cometic Gasket champion, rallied from fifth to finish third at Wilmot Raceway. “The Kunkletown Kid” Ryan Smith would roll home where he started on Saturday night and cross under the checkers fourth in the running order. Early leader Blake Nimee completed the top-five.


The UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions will move ahead and prepare for a three-race stretch in Ohio and Pennsylvania on July 31st – August 2nd.  The Atomic Speedway near Chillicothe, Ohio will host the regional travelers on Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st for the “Open Wheel Championships.” The two-day marquee event will feature back-to-back UNOH All Star programs with Friday paying $5,000 to the main event winner, followed by a $10,000 grand prize being awarded on Saturday evening, August 1st. The long weekend will conclude on Sunday, August 2nd with a visit to Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway in Imperial, Pennsylvania.

About the 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.  The 2015 schedule includes 54 events in Ohio (29), Pennsylvania (14), Florida (5), Michigan (3), Indiana (1), New York (1) and Wisconsin (1).
