BOONE, Iowa – Pre-registration for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s will be required for drivers planning to race in the Saturday, Sept. 3 Prelude to Super Nationals event at Boone Speedway.
Modified, Stock Car, Northern SportMod and Hobby Stock drivers must have completed pre-registration for the Sept. 5-10 Super Nationals prior to the deadline date in order to compete at the Prelude.
“The volume of cars for the Prelude is huge and resulted in a Super Nationals-type format last year,” IMCA President Brett Root explained. “It’s most efficient for us to have all Prelude drivers be pre-registered for Super Nationals. Once we open the pit gates that day, we’ll be racing within two hours. This requirement will streamline the race day process.”
Drivers in those four divisions who are not pre-registered will be allowed to hot lap but not compete.
“We’ll be very steadfast in this,” assured Root. “We will not add racers who are not already registered for Super Nationals to the lineup for any race during the Prelude.”
A draw/redraw format will be used for all divisions at the Prelude. Modifieds will race for $1,000 to win and a spot on the ballot for the 2017 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.
Late Model, Southern SportMod and Sport Compact drivers at Boone the Saturday before Super Nationals can also hot lap during the Prelude.
Title sponsor for the Prelude is Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Jefferson.
