BOONE, Iowa – A couple clicks is all it will take for drivers to put themselves in the running for bigger paydays at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
IMCA.TV bonuses replace Weekly Racing Bonuses to guarantee an additional $14,150 be paid to main event winners who pre-register for the 38th annual event, and who share Super Nationals information on their Facebook page any time before the first green flag flies on opening day Monday, Sept. 7 at Boone Speedway.
If they meet both requirements, the Modified champion earns $7,000, with $5,000 paid to the Stock Car champion, $3,000 to both Late Model and Northern SportMod champions, $2,000 to the Hobby Stock champion and $1,000 to the Sport Compact champion.
“With the abbreviated schedules at many tracks due to the Covid-19 pandemic, very few if any drivers will be able to reach the maximum number of starts to determine Weekly Racing Bonuses,” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “It’s not fair to promote the champions’ payout this way so for this Super Nationals it will be replaced by the IMCA.TV bonus.”
Broadcast Bonus checks will be mailed from the IMCA home office the week after Super Nationals and after their eligibility for bonuses is confirmed. Every driver taking the green flag in the Modified main event earns a minimum of $1,000.
The form for pre-registration is at both www.imca.com and www.raceboone.com websites under the Super Nationals menu and drivers who do not already have a MyRacePass account can create one when they go to that link.
Drivers have to pre-register to reserve pit stalls and to compete in the Sept. 5 Wild Rose Casino Prelude at Boone as well. Pit stall application links are also on IMCA and Boone Speedway websites.
In all, more than $300,000 will be paid out to competitors at the Sept. 7-12 Super Nationals. Modified drivers attempting to qualify each night Wednesday through Saturday are guaranteed $300; Stock Car drivers are guaranteed $200 if they attempt to qualify Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Super Nationals will also see another $60,000 in contingencies awarded to IMCA drivers.
The Prelude and each night of Super Nationals will be broadcast by IMCA.TV. Schedule for the week will be familiar to fans at the track and pay per view, as Late Models headline the Labor Day program and Sport Compacts are on the Tuesday card.
The Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational is Friday, Sept. 11 and races of champions and main events for Modifieds, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and SportMods are on Sept. 12.
