Hogan Memorial will be July 3 at Benton County Speedway

VINTON, Iowa ­– The 22nd annual Hogan Memorial will be held Sunday, July 3 at Benton County Speedway.

Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds headline the holiday weekend special in Vinton. The Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot-qualifying feature pays a minimum of $1,250 to win, with lap money, a halfway leader bonus and hard charger awards making for a potential payday of more than $4,000.

Two hundred and fifty dollars will be paid to take the green and Modified heat winners earn $100.

All regular weekly divisions will be on the program. Modifieds will run for all applicable points except local track points at the draw/redraw show.

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

More information about the Hogan Memorial is avail­a­ble at the www.jjamracing.net website or by calling 515 201-5526.

No other IMCA special events are on the area calendar for July 3; the Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour is July 9-14. Date for the Hogan had originally been announced on the track schedule as July 10, which becomes the rain date.

J.D. Auringer of Waterloo is the three-time and defending Modified race winner. Forty-five Modified drivers have entered each of the last two Hogan Memorial events.
