BOONE, Iowa – An IMCA Modified that’s racked up its share of feature wins in the Empire State returns to Boone Speedway and the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s this week. 

Ernie Martin will drive the Victory Chassis formerly piloted by Dale Caswell and Chris Fleming, the latter of whom drove it into the Saturday show seven years ago.

“This car has won a lot of races. It has a strong history in New York State,” said Martin, wheeling for owner Rich McNeal. “It would be phenomenal for me to come out here and be competitive.” 

The Troy, Pa., pilot has crewed for other drivers in his first four trips to Super Nationals. While he’s raced for 20-plus years, this will be the first time he raced at Boone. 

“Nothing else compares to racing at Super Nationals. This is something I’ve wanted to say I’ve been to and done,” he explained. “Nothing else compares to this.”
