SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. – Officials from the Badger Midget Auto Racing Ass’n have released a 23-race schedule for the upcoming racing season.

Badger is the country’s oldest midget auto racing sanctioning organization. Zimbrick Chevrolet of Sun Prairie returns as the series’ title sponsor.

Sun Prairie’s Angell Park Speedway continues as the cornerstone of the series, with 12 Badger races slated at the famed third-mile facility. The first event will be on May 19. Other traditional Angell Park events include the Sprint Spectacular with All Stars and IRA on May 31; the 39th annual Pepsi Midget Nationals on July 5, with a complete night of racing also on Saturday July 4; and the 41st annual Miller Lite Cornfest Racing Classic on Aug. 23.

The Kevin Doty Classic will be the track’s season finale on Sept. 6. Other Angell Park events include June 7, June 21, June 28, July 19, Aug. 2, and Aug. 16.

Sycamore (Ill.) Speedway hosts the series for eight Saturday night events. The track will host the season opener and finale for Badger on May 9 and Sept. 26. The Franklin B. Alexander Memorial, paying $5,000 to win, will be held Sept. 5. Other Sycamore Badger events are scheduled for May 23, June 6, July 18, Aug. 2 and Aug. 16.

Last year’s popular return to the Plymouth (Wis.) Dirt Track, for the first time in a dozen years, has resulted in two series appearances at the Sheboygan County Fairgrounds on Aug. 1 and Sept. 12.

The 11th annual Salute to Harry Turner highlights the June 27 event at Wilmot (Wis.) Raceway.

Additional races will be announced as they be available.
