WEST BURLINGTON, Iowa – The longest running Late Model tour in the Midwest nears another milestone, with the approach of the 500th event in Deery Brothers Summer Series history.
IMCA Late Models have enjoyed tour title sponsorship of the Deery Brothers Automotive Group for the last 28 of their 33 seasons. The 498th event in tour history is scheduled Aug. 24 at West Liberty, with dates at Boone, West Burlington and Davenport completing the 2019 campaign.
The largest retailer of new and pre-driven cars, trucks and vans in Iowa with 14 locations and more than 5,000 vehicles in stock, Deery Brothers again furnishes a portion of the $18,650 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in tour standings.
The series champion earns a $5,000 share of that point fund. Six different drivers own wins through seven events so far this season and Darrel DeFrance of Marshalltown has maintained his perfect attendance streak from day one of the tour.
Deery Brothers outlet and service centers are located in Ames, Cedar Falls, Iowa City, Maquoketa, Pleasant Hill, Waterloo, Waukee and West Burlington. Collision centers are located in Burlington, Cedar Falls, Maquoketa and Pleasant Hill.
“When you have been with a sponsor as long as we’ve been with the Deery Brothers Automotive Group, you celebrate a lot of milestones,” noted IMCA marketing and tour director Kevin Yoder. “Approaching our 500th series event is certainly some rare air and we couldn’t be more proud to fly the Deery flag over the track when it happens.”
