ANKENY, Iowa – Half a century after the first Casey’s General Store opened, the Official Convenience Store of IMCA continues its support of both the biggest event in dirt track racing and the longest running Late Model series in the Midwest.
Casey’s returns for a sixth consecutive season as presenting sponsor of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals, scheduled Sept. 3-8 at Boone Speedway, and to the title sponsorship role for the redraw at each IMCA Late Model tour main event.
Headquartered in Ankeny, Iowa, Casey’s has more than 2,000 stores in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
Casey’s and IMCA both donate $10 to Hope for the Warriors on behalf of each heat winner during the week of Super Nationals. That organization, which serves post-9/11 service members and their families, has received more than $25,000 in the past five events.
Super Nationals heat winners in all divisions also receive a hat and $20 gift card.
Drivers drawing the pole for each Deery Series main event get $50 gift cards while those with perfect attendance for the entire season receive $100 gift cards.
Decal placement is required for both Super Nationals and Deery Series competitors. Gift cards are redeemable at any Casey’s location.
In addition to selling grocery items, bakery goods and gasoline, Casey’s is the fifth largest pizza chain in the country and is becoming even more famous for pizza with online orders and a new app for smartphone and other mobile device users.
The first Casey’s store opened in Boone 50 years ago. Casey’s continues to maintain a very visible location in the hometown of Super Nationals with a store that opened along Highway 30, just across the road from the Boone Speedway grounds.
The Casey’s website is www.caseys.com. Information about new promotions is also on Facebook. The 2018 season is the third in the current three-year sponsorship agreement between Casey’s and IMCA.
“The history and affiliation between IMCA and Casey’s runs deep yet the excitement remains strong as we look to the future,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder commented. “2018 is going to be a great year for the Deery Brothers Summer Series as well as the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s, and we can’t wait to get underway.”
