BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 11) – One more Modified, one more Stock Car and 33 Late Models resulted in a new car count record for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.

By the time the final checkered flag flew early this morning, an all-time record 876 cars had competed at America’s Racin’ Vacation, two more than the previous mark set in 2012.

The additional Modified entered on Thursday at Boone Speedway nudged that division total to 278. The additional Stock Car put that class at 193 entries, two more than the previous best, which also dates from three years ago.

The 33 Late Models were in town for the Deery Brothers Summer Series.

Other division totals were 167 Northern SportMods, 141 Hobby Stocks and a record 64 Sport Compacts, up one from 2013.

This is the eighth straight year 800 or more cars have converged on Boone for Super Nationals.
