BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 5) – Another Algona driver will start on the front row in Saturday’s IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s Northern SportMod main event.
Colby Fett was promoted to the top spot in the second of two Tuesday night 25-lap qualifying features at Boone Speedway after Jake McBirnie failed post-race rear suspension inspection.
Lining up behind Fett on the outside row will be Cory Rose of Boone, Dakota Sproul of Ellis, Kan., Shawn Harker of Nebraska City, Neb., Taylor Musselman of Urbandale, Rusty Montagne of North Sioux City, S.D., Gunnar Pike of South Bend, Neb., and Andrew Inman of Mason City.
Cory started 18th, Pike 22nd. Inman advanced to the final transfer spot after Austin Svoboda was disqualified, also for failing rear suspension inspection.
Fett had passed Sproul for the front spot on lap 16; McBirnie made his own pass for the lead on the white flag circuit and beat Fett to the checkers by half a car length.
Rose and Harker both qualified for the third time in their respective careers, Fett, Sproul and Musselman each for the second and Montagne, Pike and Inman each for the first.
Last-chance qualifying on Wednesday adds the final six cars to the main event grid. Algona’s Doug Cook won the Monday qualifier to earn the pole position in Saturday’s big dance.
