BOONE, Iowa – A familiar format will be back in place when race fans use social media to elect 28 of the 30 starting drivers in the upcoming Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.
Two drivers from each of the five regions for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified regions will be voted onto the starting grid in balloting that runs from Monday, July 25 through Friday, July 29.
Eighteen more starters will be elected at large between Monday, Aug. 1 and Friday, Aug. 5. Completing the Friday, Sept. 9 All-Star field at Boone Speedway will be candidates with the highest national point total and the most 40-point feature wins competing at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
