BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 3) – His dominating run at the front of the Monday night qualifying feature field put Chase Rudolf on the pole for the Northern SportMod main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Rudolf led every lap, mastering lapped traffic much of the second half of the 25-lapper. The rest of the top eight finishers lining up behind him on the inside row will be Chad Ryerson, 2014 champion Johnathon Logue, Brayton Carter, Joe Docekal, Jarred Hackler, 25th starting Gunnar Pike and 29th starting Ty Rogers, the first Arizona driver to suit up for the big Northern SportMod dance. Jake McBirnie was disqualified in post-race tech for an illegal front end component, Zech Norgaard and Rodger Peck for compression and Robert Draper for a rear end violation. Logue will make his career fifth Super Nationals start, Ryerson his fourth, Docekal his third, Carter, Pike and Rudolf each their second, and Hackler and Rogers both their second. Feature results – 1. Chase Rudolf, Norwalk; 2. Chad Ryerson, Wellsburg; 3. [Read More]
BOONE, Iowa – Drivers, crew members and race fans attending Super Nationals are reminded that ATVs and 4-wheelers are not allowed on public streets in Boone. While they can be used to get from point A to point B on the Boone Speedway grounds, driving them elsewhere in tow can and most likely will result in a citation and fine.
BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 3) – Jesse Vanlaningham will start from the pole in Saturday’s Hobby Stock main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. The Beatrice, Neb., speedster ran in front the last 11 circuits in winning Monday’s first qualifying feature at Boone Speedway, taking advantage when leader Craig Clift and a lapped car made contact after midway in the 25-lapper. Andy Hoffman chased Vanlaningham across the stripe in a fast-paced feature slowed only by a caution on lap three. Four-time and defending champion Shannon Anderson motored from 12th starting to third. The rest of the top eight advancing to the inside row on Saturday were Clift, Brandon Nielsen, James Johnson, Matthew McAtee and Kyle Parizek. Shawn Wirtz was disqualified from a transfer spot because of an illegal carburetor. Anderson qualified for his career 10th main event, Vanlaningham his sixth and Nielsen his fourth. McAtee and Parizek are both in for the second time while Clift, Hoffman and Johnson all are first-time qualifiers. 1st qualifying feature – 1. Jesse Vanlaningham, Beatrice, [Read More]
WHITE CITY, Ore. (Sept. 2.) – Bobby Hogge IV won the 50-lap R. Charles Snyder Salute main event for IMCA Modifieds Sunday at Southern Oregon Speedway. The big win paid the Salinas, Calif., driver, already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, $5,000. Hogge led from the start. Darrell Hughes II settled into second on lap 19 and followed Hogge closely during the second half of the race for a $2,500 payday. Bricen James made a nice charge from the back to finish third, followed by Clint Reichenbach and Robby Sawyer. Guy Ahlwardt scored an impressive victory in the 30-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main. The win paid the Antioch, Calif., visitor $2,000. Ahlwardt led from the initial green flag. Two-time track champion Jorddon Braaten settled into second on lap eight and ran in close pursuit of the leader all the way to a nice $1,000 payday for second. Daniel Ray finished third ahead of Braxton Possinger and Matt Sanders.
The Prelude marked the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car debut for Crystal, Mich., driver Rob Brillhart. Brillhart bought the 2016 B & B Chassis out of Jackson, Minn., two weeks ago. The pro stock track champion this season at I-96 Speedway will put a check next to Super Nationals when Stock Car qualifying starts on Wednesday. “This is a dream come true. What more could you do than come to Super Nationals?” he asked. Learning on the fly, Brillhart was loose in Prelude hot laps, threw a street stock setup on his new ride and went to “oh boy” tight. While he’s a rookie in the class, Brillhart already shares the same dream as all the veterans of America’s Racin’ Vacation. “We’ve seen the lap times we wanted,” he said. “Being in the Saturday night field would be the ultimate.”
