BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 7, 2022) – With a feature win and another top five finish at Iowa’s Action Track already to his credit this season, Lucas Lamberies returns to Boone Speedway looking to build on his previous IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s success.
The Clintonville, Wis.-based racer was a weekly winner at Boone early in the season and ran fifth in the Saturday night Wild Rose Casino Prelude.
“We drew pretty good for our qualifying night,” commented Lamberies. “We are just going to have to leave it all on the track. You’ve got to race smart but also drive hard. Everything has got to fall into place. The car’s got to go good and you’ve got to avoid any wrecks.”
Lamberies has danced on the final night four times, twice in a Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMod and twice in the Modified.
Fourth in 2015 and 29th in 2018 in the SportMod, he moved to the Modified and ran 20th in 2019 and eighth last year.
Lamberies has visited victory lane four times this season, with wins at Shawano Speedway, Shelby County Speedway and Kossuth County Speedway in addition to his Boone checkers. Both Harlan and Algona wins came with Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifying eligibility.
“Our year has been pretty good so far. The car has been good,” Lamberies said. “We just want to see what we can do here.”
