BEAVER DAM, Wisc. — June 8, 2015 — The Sixth Annual Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial Presented by Karavan Trailers will see the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series hit the track at Beaver Dam Raceway on Saturday, June 27. Always one of the most anticipated stops on the schedule, three different drivers took turns leading the event last season at the high-banked, third-mile bullring.
In the end, it was Brad Sweet, standing in victory Lane. The Kasey Kahne Racing driver suffered a broken ankle less than a day earlier in a terrifying crash in Iowa and turned in what was one of the gutsiest drives in series history. The Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial has had four different winners in each of the last four years. Joey Saldana, who won the inaugural event in 2010, is the only two-time winner to date, while Sweet, Craig Dollansky and Kraig Kinser each have won the race once. To gear up for the Jim “JB” Boyd Memorial Presented by Karavan Trailers at Beaver Dam Raceway, here are some interesting facts and figures.
