Bigger payouts, good cause at Benton County Speedway’s Urbana 5 special

VINTON, Iowa – Drivers in five IMCA divisions hit the track for bigger payouts and a good cause at Benton County Speedway’s Sunday, July 11 Urbana 5 program.

IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods all race for $1,000 to win, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks for $400 and Mach-1 Sport Compacts for $250. Features for the Modifieds and Stock Cars are qualifiers for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational and B & B Chassis All-Star Invitational, respectively.

Additional money from sponsors, local businesses and donations will be paid throughout each field, with three luck of the draws paying $50 to random finishers in each feature.

The Urbana 5 special is held to remember the five area youth killed in a 2015 traffic accident near Urbana, and to encourage people to become organ and tissue donors.

An Iowa Donor Network representative will be located in a booth under the grandstand. The Urbana 5 group will also be raising money for families with children who need financial help for eye care assistance and will have Urbana 5 merchandise available for purchase.

There will also be a drawing for several kids’ bikes during the evening.

Pit gates open at 4 p.m., the grandstand opens at 4:30 p.m., hot laps are at 5:30 p.m. and racing starts at 6 p.m.
