DAVENPORT, Iowa (Aug. 16, 2023) – A pair of Sunoco Race Fuels bonus nights rained out earlier this month are on the IMC Late Model schedule for the upcoming weekend.
The division title sponsor awards $250 bonuses to feature winners Friday, Aug. 18 at Davenport Speedway and Saturday, Aug. 19 at 34 Raceway in West Burlington.
Drivers can receive the bonus one time in a season so the $250 would be given to the top finishing non-winning driver either night, if the winner has already earned the bonus at another track.
Friday’s season championship night show at Davenport also features Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods, along with the Ryan McDermott Memorial Race for the local 4-cylinder class.
Pit gates open at 4 p.m., the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. and racing follows 6:30 p.m. hot laps. Pit passes are $30 for adults and $15 for kids.
Spectator admission is $15 for adults, $5 for kids ages 5-12 and free for four and under.
Saturday is the big 34 For Kids Night show at West Burlington, where the $1,000 to win Late Model headliner will be complemented by a night of prize giveaways and a post-race fireworks spectacular.
Sanctioned Modifieds, Stock Cars, Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts are also on the card.
Grandstand admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors 62 and over and students ages 11-17, and free for kids 10 and under when accompanying a paid adult. All kids coming through the front gate will receive a backpack full of supplies for the upcoming school year.
Pit passes are $30. Pits open at 4 p.m. and the front gate opens at 5 p.m. Hot laps are at 6:15 p.m. and racing is at 7 p.m. sharp.
Sunoco bonus recipients so far this season include Jake Bridge, Micah Brown, Curt Martin, Luke Merfeld, Jacob Kubicka, Eric Pollard, Alex Banks, Cade Richards, Matt Ryan, Nick Marolf and, most recently, Dalton Simonsen.
Also at stake both nights are prize packages given by Justice Brothers to hard chargers in the Late Model mains.
The last Sunoco Race Fuels bonus of the season will be given Aug. 25 during the Drive For 5 finale at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson.
