McKarns Family New Angell Park Promoters

SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. – Angell Park Speedway officials announced Monday that they have reached a five-year promotional agreement with the McKarns family to operate the third-mile dirt oval.

Gregg and Angie McKarns, through their GA Promotions, LLC, will continue the legacy of Angell Park, which first hosted midget auto racing in 1946.

“We have enjoyed going to the races at Angell Park on Sunday nights as a family. Gregg started going there as a kid and when the chance to promote races was presented, our interest was peaked immediately,” said Angie McKarns. “We have strong relationships with IRA, USAC, Badger and many of the sanctioning bodies in dirt racing and look forward to building upon those in the coming years.”

Gregg and Angie McKarns are heavily involved in the motorsports industry as owners and operators of nearby Madison Int’l Speedway and the ARCA Midwest Tour for asphalt super late models. Gregg McKarns is the son of the late John McKarns, the founder of the defunct ARTGO Challenge Series.

The partnership with the McKarns family comes after a deal was reached with SLS Promotions and Hans Lein to promote the speedway, only for that deal to be nixed after a problem with alcohol licensing requirements and the local government.

“After the rollercoaster of different directions that 2021 has started off with, Angell Park Speedway is both proud and excited to announce a confirmed partnership with GA Promotions,” Firemen’s Angell Park General Manager Erin Yeargin added. “Gregg and Angie have shown their unwavering consistency and interest in Angell Park since the beginning of negotiations last fall. We are confident that their knowledge and dedication will help grow Angell Park well into the future and ensure the Speedway continues to have its roots well planted in Sun Prairie”

A 10-race schedule is being finalized that will be headlined by the All Star Circuit of Champions on June 6, multiple visits by the Bumper to Bumper IRA Outlaw Sprint Series and the return of the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series on Sept. 5.

The mainstay Badger Midget Auto Racing Ass’n as well as the AutoMeter Wisconsin wingLESS Sprints and MSA 360 Sprints will continue their involvement at the Sun Prairie oval and a visit by the DiscountShopTowels.com Dirt Kings Late Model Tour is being finalized.
