Super Tuesday arrives, All-Star voting begins

VINTON, Iowa – It’s Super Tuesday and Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational voting is underway.

Twenty-eight of the 30 IMCA Modified drivers to start the All-Star race, to be held Sept. 6 at Boone Speedway during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s, will be elected today.

All ballots will be cast the IMCA Facebook page with the electronic polls open until 9 p.m. CST.

“The All-Star Invitational is a fan favorite and one of our most prestigious races. Like the first 15 Invitationals, the 16th annual event will feature many of the best drivers in our Modified division,” said IMCA President Brett Root. “It’s going to be a great race and we look forward to seeing which drivers IMCA fans elect to the starting field.”

The top three vote recipients from each of the five Modified regions are guaranteed starting spots, with their region of candidacy determined by where they made the majority of their IMCA sanctioned starts.

The next 13 drivers with the highest vote totals, regardless of region, become All-Stars. 

Completing the field will be drivers with the top national point total and with the most 40-point feature wins as of Aug. 29 competing at Super Nationals. 

One hundred and thirty-one drivers are on the ballot. Drivers elected will be notified and announced this week. 

The Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational pays $1,000 to win. All-Star drivers receive firesuits from Velocita and mini-replica drive shafts from event title sponsor Fast Shafts by Axle Exchange.
