One night isn’t enough for Prelude at Boone

BOONE, Iowa – It’s become an event so big that one night isn’t enough. 

Boone Speedway’s Prelude special leading into the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s splits into two days, Saturday, Sept. 4 and Sunday, Sept. 5. 

Complete shows for Modifieds and Stock Cars, along with qualifying for the STARS Mod Lites are on the Saturday card.

Northern SportMods, Hobby Stocks and Sport Compacts run complete shows on Sunday, along with the race of champions, qualifying races and main event for Mod Lites. 

Non-competing divisions will be allowed to hot lap both nights. 

“As a one-day event, the Prelude had one of the single largest daily car counts of the week simply because of the number of divisions on the race night card,” explained IMCA President Brett Root, noting the 412 cars that competed in the 2020 event. “Making the Prelude two days and getting shows done earlier each night just makes it easier for everyone involved.”

The Mod Lite main event pays $2,000 to win; purses for the other five divisions are to be announced.

IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National and KMJ Performance State points will be awarded to Modifieds, Stock Cars, Northern SportMods, Hobby Stocks and Sport Compacts. Modifieds earn Side Biter Chassis North Central Region points, Stock Cars EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region points and Hobby Stocks Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region points. 

Pit gates open at 1 p.m. with registration running through 4 p.m. and racing at 5 p.m. both days. Pit passes are $30. Grandstand admission is $20.

IMCA.TV broadcasts both nights of the Prelude.
