BOONE, Iowa (June 27) – Boone Speedway held its first Super Saturday of the 2020 season Saturday night.  Nick Roberts took home the $1,000 prize in the IMCA Modified division as well as securing a berth on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. 

The Modifieds ran a 30-lap main event and Roberts led all of them to take the checkers in convincing fashion.  He finished comfortably ahead of Tim Ward.  Ethan Braaksma ran at the front of the pack all race long and finished third.

Extra money was also on the line for the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and it was Johnathon Logue taking home that $750 prize.

Donavon Smith won his second local IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature of the season and his nephew Mike Smith took the checkers in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.

Next Saturday night will be the Fourth of July special at Boone.  All classes will be running except the Hobby Stocks.  Also on the docket will be a roll over contest and leap of death, as well as a fireworks display. Hot laps are 5 p.m. with racing at 6 p.m.
