BOONE, Iowa (Aug. 25) – Regan Tafoya has been named to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational field.
The Farmington, N.M., driver takes the place of Californian Bobby Hogge IV in the Friday, Sept. 11 Modified event during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s at Boone Speedway.
Hogge, who had been elected from the Larry Shaw Racing Western Region during the second round of All-Star voting, notified IMCA officials this afternoon that he would now be unable to race at Super Nationals.
Tafoya had the next highest vote total from among the Western Region drivers on that ballot and becomes one of 11 first-time starters in the initial field of 28.
Completing the 30-car grid will be All-Star candidates with the top national point total and with the most 40-point feature wins as of Sept. 4 who are competing at Super Nationals.
The 12th annual invitational is 30 laps and pays $1,000 to win and $200 to start.
