Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod races of champions move to Tuesday at IMCA Super Nationals

BOONE, Iowa (July 1, 2022) – Race of champions events for Hobby Stocks and Northern SportMods move to the Tuesday night program during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s at Boone Speedway.

Former Super Nationals, national and regional champions and former race winners, as well as 2022 track champions or points leaders will be eligible to qualify for their respective race of champions event on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 5. 

The Stephenville Starter Race of Champions for Hobby Stocks and BSB Manufacturing Race of Champions for Northern SportMods will be Tuesday, Sept. 6. 

Both race of champions events had been part of Saturday programs since their addition to the Super Nationals schedule in 2009.

“Every year there are drivers who qualify for the race of champions but not their main event. That forces them to stay four days or make two long trips to run 12 laps,” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “Moving qualifying and the two races of champions to Tuesday makes more sense, especially with fuel costs at a record high and with drivers coming to Super Nationals from so many states.”

Harris Auto Racing Modified and Sunoco Race Fuels Stock Car races of champions remain on the Saturday, Sept. 10 program, along with main events for the Hobbies, SportMods, Stocks and Modified.
