Storybook Ending: Brad Sweet Earned Gutsy Win at Beaver Dam Raceway Last Year
BEAVER DAM, Wisc. — June 24, 2015 — Less than 24 hours before he won last year at Beaver Dam Raceway in Wisconsin, World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series driver Brad Sweet was involved in one of the most scary accidents in series history, during an event in Iowa. The wreck tore his car in half and left him with a broken ankle. Sitting in the hospital still at 6 a.m. on race morning, he was not sure if he would even be able to race at Beaver Dam.
After getting released from the hospital later that morning, he made the trip north to Wisconsin to compete at Beaver Dam. With the help of his crew, who quickly put together a new car for him, Sweet was back behind the wheel and by the end of the night was hoisting the trophy for picking up the win. Sweet, who drives the No. 49 for Kasey Kahne Racing, returns to Beaver Dam Raceway this weekend for the Sixth Annual Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial Presented by Karavan Trailers on Saturday, June 27.
Consistently Fast: Paul McMahan Seeks to Translate Quick Car into Wins
WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa — June 24, 2015 — Paul McMahan has had a fast race car for most of the season with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, he just hasn’t had the best of luck.

McMahan, who drives the No. 51 for CJB Motorsports, looks to turn his luck around this week, as the World of Outlaws hit the track three times, including a visit to 34 Raceway in Iowa. The World of Outlaws will be in action at 34 Raceway on Friday, June 26, with a full night of racing on tap, beginning with hot laps, followed by qualifying time trials, heat races, a dash, Last Chance Showdown and 30-lap main event that will pay $10,000 to the winner.
