BRITT, Iowa (June 30) – Heavy rainfall prevented completion of the annual IMCA Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod Nationals on Thursday, June 26 at Hancock County Speedway in Britt. All main events were washed out in the storm.
Persistent showers and clouds hampered track drying efforts on the scheduled Friday, June 27 rain date.
All remaining feature events, including the 25-lap MaxYield Seed SportMod Nationals main event, will be run Friday, July 4 prior to regular weekly racing action.
Hot laps begin at 7 p.m. with racing to follow. Twenty-eight cars are slated to start the SportMod Nationals finale.
The winner of Hancock County Speedway’s MaxYield Seed Northern SportMod Nationals earns as much as $4,000 for his or her efforts.
The main event pays a minimum of $2,500 to win with $500 bonuses if the first-place driver is a previous event winner; has raced at least three times previously this season at Britt; and has won a regular season feature there this year.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National and Allstar Performance State points will be awarded to SportMod drivers.
Completing the card are IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts running for weekly purses and all applicable points, including local track points.
