Four Super Nationals champions get new engines

BOONE, Iowa – Four champions crowned at the 35th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s will leave Boone Speedway with more than their place in dirt track racing history secured.

Each of the main event winners on Saturday, Sept. 9 receives a new engine from Karl Perfor­mance or Karl Chevrolet as well.

Modified, Northern SportMod or Hobby Stock champions who win titles with crate motors receive a new GM 604 or 602 crate from Karl Chevrolet.

Drivers in those divisions winning with claim motors get engines from Karl Performance.

All motors will be built to IMCA specifications and any additional services or parts desired are to be taken care of at the new owner’s expense.

The Modified champion, if running a claim motor, gets a KPM CPH383-60D engine valued at $6,999.

The Stock Car champion will receive a KPM 360 spec engine valued at $6,040.99. The SportMod and Hobby Stock champions, if running claim motors, both get a KPM CC355-60F en­gine valued at $4,299.99.

Stock Car, Northern SportMod and Hobby Stock engines are all built with quality EQ cylinder heads.

“Karl Performance and Karl Chevrolet have been world-class partners in this endeavor since we began awarding engines in Boone,” observed IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder, “and with the popularity of the engine auction on Saturday night, this program with Carl Moyer and his team has set a standard that no other event in the country can match. We are excited to continue this tradition again in 2017.”

After the final night program is complete, the engines that powered Modified, Stock Car, Hobby Stock and Northern SportMod champions will be sold at a public auction in the infield at Boone Speedway.

Minus the wrecker fee, engine auction proceeds will be divided among the rest of the qualifiers in each respective event.
