Super Nationals nears record with entries from 26 states 

BOONE, Iowa – The number of drivers already entered for the Sept. 3-8 IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s is impressive.

So are all the states they’re coming to Boone Speedway from, to be part of America’s Racin’ Vacation.

“Our pre-registration numbers are over 500 and running ahead of last year. What’s really neat to see is the number of different states (26 so far, plus Canada and Australia) that are represented by early entries,” noted IMCA President Brett Root.

“We pride ourselves on having a set of rules that allows drivers to go to any sanctioned track in the country and know they’ll be legal when they get there,” he continued. “That’s one reason why so many drivers from so many different places make Super Nationals their racing vacation every September.”

The record for different states represented at Super Nationals is 27, matched most recently two years ago.

“The atmosphere at Boone is a huge draw. There are a lot of big events but Super Nationals is unique,” Root said. “Another thing drivers and fans like about Super Nationals is that the format is already familiar. The biggest difference from last year’s schedule is that the Deery Brothers Series is back on the opening night program Monday.”

Late Models following the Deery Series share the Labor Day card with qualifying events for Hobby Stocks and Northern SportMods. The complete Sport Compact program is on Tuesday, Sept. 4 along with more qualifying races for Hobby Stock and SportMod main events and races of champions.

Last-chance qualifying for those two divisions is Sept. 5; Modified and Stock Car qualifying starts on Wednesday and continues Thursday, Sept. 6 and Friday, Sept. 7. Race of champions qualifying for the Modifieds and Stock Cars is on Thursday; Friday’s race program also features the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.

Last-chance qualifying, races of champions and Modified, Stock Car, Hobby Stock and SportMod features bring the 36th Super Nationals to a close on Saturday.

With bonuses, potential winner’s shares of championship events are $7,000 for the Modifieds, $3,500 for the Late Models and Stock Cars, $2,250 for the SportMods, $1,850 for the Hobby Stocks and $500 for the Sport Compacts.

Drivers must be pre-registered and must attend the national awards banquet in November to receive their bonus.

A purse of more than $300,000 will be paid out over the course of Super Nationals, with some $60,000 in contingency awards to be given as well.

Drivers in all divisions except the Late Models competing at Super Nationals must pre-register online. That form can be found at and under the Super Nationals menu and drivers who do not already have a MyRacePass account can create one when they go to that link.

In addition to the discounted entry fee, pre-registered drivers become eligible to compete in the Sept. 1 Prelude at Boone.

That event, as well as the entire week of Super Nationals, will be broadcast by IMCA.TV.
