Festive July 4 set for Benton County Speedway

VINTON, Iowa – With both attempts at holding the Benton County Fair races washed out, the focus now shifts to Sunday, July 4 at Benton County Speedway.

And it’s going to be big.

As part of “A Celebration at The Bullring” on the Independence Day holiday, the speedway will host weekly racing in all five divisions, plus the Lil’ Racer Car Club benefit raffle. A giant fireworks display will close out the holiday program following the races.

Weekly racing will feature KISS Country 96.5 IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars presented by Albert Auto Service, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks presented by Kwik Star, Karl Kustoms IMCA Northern SportMods presented by Christie Door Company and Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compacts presented by Auto Crafters.

All weekly divisions will be draw/redraw and all applicable IMCA points, including local track points, will be awarded. There is no entry fee.

Sprint Invaders and Midwest Micro Sprints will complete Sunday’s program.

Adult grandstand admission is $18, seniors and veterans $16, and ages 6-14 $5. Kids ages five and under are admitted free if accompanied by a paid adult.

Pit passes are $30 for adults and $15 for ages 14 and under.

Gates open at 4 p.m. July 4, grandstand at 4:30, with hot laps scheduled for 5:30 and racing at 6.

In addition to the action-packed night on the track, the Lil’ Racer Car Club Inc. is holding its mid-season benefit raffle with more than two dozen raffle packages available.
