Hartland, Wisconsin (December 15, 2023) – For the first time in his career, Bill Balog and B2 Motorsports will chase a World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series championship racing 86 race nights at 41 different tracks in 19 states with the series. When the 2024 season commences at Volusia Speedway Park for the Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals, Feb. 7-10, the 2016 World of Outlaws Jim Boyd Memorial feature event winner will commence his run for the Kevin Gobrecht Rookie of the Year title in the Anderson’s Maple Syrup #17B.
“We’ve been wanting to travel with the series and chase additional World of Outlaws feature wins against the best in the business for years, now is the time”.

After ten IRA Sprint Car Series Championships and two years competing with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions tour the team saw success in 2023 highlighted by nine feature event wins (two ASCoC, six IRA, one Wilmot Raceway), two Simpson QuickTime awards with the World of Outlaws snatching track records at Wilmot Raceway and Sycamore Speedway along the way.
