Arenz shakes off early challenges, secures top-10 IRA 34 Raceway showing

(PEDAL DOWN PROMOTIONS) August 30, 2023 – It was the case of same story, different track for Travis Arenz and the Travis Arenz Motorsports team, as the Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series made its second appearance of the 2023 season at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa on Friday, Aug. 25.

Much as it has for the majority of the 2023 campaign, the program got off to a bit of a sluggish start with Arenz posting the 17th fastest overall qualifying time in the 31-car field with a lap of 13.544 seconds.

Arenz then started on the pole of the third eight-lap IRA heat race before dropping back to finish fourth in the eight-lap event. The 2021 and 2022 Akright Auto Plymouth Dirt Track Racing and Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Car champion then drew the 16th starting spot in the 30-lap main event.

When the green flag dropped on the 30-lap headliner, the Sheboygan Falls, Wis. competitor turned in what he is known best for – an inspired charge to the front of the field. When the checkered flag flew, Arenz had advanced seven spots to secure a ninth place showing for his 13th top 10 A-main finish of the 2023 campaign in a race won by Aaron Reutzel.

"This time around at 34 was far better than last time," Arenz said. "We reviewed the set-up notes from the beginning of the season and made some adjustments to the car and had much better results.

"In the heat race, I was a little too loose," he said. "I made a few adjustments and fared better come feature time. I had more confidence this time around with having more seat time and experience. I am getting a good feel for this car, and getting better at knowing what the car likes and how to fine tune it. That is allowing us to move forward each night of racing."

The Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series was scheduled to compete with support from the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) 410 Sprint Cars at Federated Auto Parts Speedway in Pevely, Mo. on Saturday, Aug. 26. However, heavy rain forced the event to be cancelled.

The weekend kicks off with the annual IRA Harry Neitzel Tribute event on Friday, Sept. 1 at the horsepower half-mile Dodge County Fairgrounds Speedway in Beaver Dam, Wis.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with warm-ups at 6 p.m. and hot laps and qualifying to follow before opening ceremonies begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Akright Auto Midwest Sprint Car Association 360 Sprint Cars and A Modifieds will also be on the card.

On Saturday, Sept. 2, the Sheboygan Falls, Wis.-based Travis Arenz Motorsports Team will return home to The Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wis. for the annual all-Sprint Car event during the Sheboygan County Fair, featuring the Bumper to Bumper IRA 410 Sprint Cars and Akright Auto MSA 360 Sprint Cars.

On-track action is slated to begin at 5 p.m.

All 2023 Bumper to Bumper Interstate Racing Association 410 Sprint Car Series events will be streamed live on FloRacing.
