ANKENY, Iowa – The premier event in all of dirt track racing and the longest running Late Model series in the Midwest will enjoy their association with Casey’s General Store through the 2021 race season.
Casey’s, the Official Convenience Store of IMCA, will return as presenting sponsor of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals, to be held Sept. 2-7 at Boone Speedway, and as title sponsor for the redraw at each main event in the 33rd annual IMCA Late Model tour.
The latest agreement takes Casey’s through its ninth year as an IMCA sponsor.
“Casey’s is excited to continue its partnership with IMCA through the year 2021,” said Promotions Manager Angela Wood. “We have a long history of supporting racing in communities we operate and providing fans and competitors with locations to stop for fuel, pizza, snacks and drinks when traveling to and from race events.”
The first Casey’s location opened 51 years ago in Boone. A new store was built and opened late last year in Vinton, hometown of the International Motor Contest Association.
The Ankeny, Iowa, based company now 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. Those donations have generated more than $30,000 since 2013 and go to the benefit of post-9/11 service members and their families.
Super Nationals heat winners in all six divisions receive a hat and $20 Casey’s gift card.
Drivers drawing the pole start at 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.
“This Casey’s program is really one of the cornerstone programs we have at IMCA and was a priority to get renewed this offseason. Casey’s is a great supporter of IMCA racing and especially the biggest and best event in all of dirt track racing, the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s,” commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “We are also proud to both have close relationships with Hope For The Warriors and their philanthropic work is really inspiring.”
