BRITT, Iowa – The second of three crown jewel events for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds this week at Hancock County Speedway is the Friday, Aug. 7 Night of 10,000 Stars.

The winner earns $7,000, with $1,000 bonuses added if they’ve won the event previously, raced at least six times previously at Britt this season and if they’ve won a feature at Hancock County in 2015. That makes for a potential $10,000 payday.

Thirty cars will qualify with another six sponsor provisionals; the longest tow driver also receives a provisional if they do not qualify.

IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars will chase a $1,000 top prize Friday night. Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods race for $500 to win, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks for $400.

Pit gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and rac­ing to follow. Grandstand admission is $18 for adults, $10 for kids ages 6-12 and free for five and under. Pit passes are $35.

Fireworks follow the final checkers of the evening. DuPont Crop Protection sponsors the Night of 10,000 Stars.
