$4,000 is possible to win at 20th annual Hogan Memorial

VINTON, Iowa (July 6) – It’s billed as the most antici­pated event of the year at Benton County Speedway and the 20th annual Hogan Memorial is a good bet to be just that.

The Sunday, July 13 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modi­fied main event pays $1,250 to win, an­other $50 for each of the 40 laps led, plus $250 to the leader at mid­way.

With the addition of a $500 hard charger award, that makes for a potential payoff of $4,000. If not al­ready vote eligible, the winner will be added to the ballot for the 2014 Fast Shafts All-Star Invi­tational.

Minimum start money has been upped to $200. Each heat race winner earns $100.

IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Belleville Motorsports North Central Region and Allstar Performance State points will be awarded at the draw/redraw show.

A mandatory caution will be thrown for a five minute break midway through the feature, with all cars stopping on the frontstretch.

Two former race winners and the top two drivers in lo­cal track points who do not qualify will receive provi­sional starts.

IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks run for all ap­plicable IMCA points.

There is no entry fee for any division.

Gates open at 4 p.m., with hot laps at 6 p.m. and rac­ing to follow. Grandstand admission is $12 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6-12, with five and under admitted free. Pit passes are $25.
