BOONE, Iowa (Aug. 4, 2022) – The popular cornhole tournaments return to Boone Speedway during the 40th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s, and competitors will have three opportunities to bag big money. A maximum of 48 two-person teams will be entered in double elimination tournaments Sunday, Sept. 4; Wednesday, Sept. 7; and Friday, Sept. 9.  Entry fee for each tourney is $40. Teams are required to pre-register and pre-pay, and must do so online through IMCA or Super Nationals websites.  There will be a 100 percent payback to top four teams in each tournament and no refunds paid to teams that register but don’t show up.  “We anticipate full fields for each tournament and recommend that teams interested in competing register as soon as possible,” said IMCA President Brett Root. “Check-in time is 9:30 a.m. and I anticipate that tournaments will start before 10 a.m. each day, so get there early.”  Tournaments will be held near the east catwalk in the pit area.

Fine tuning schedule aims at earlier finish to Prelude, Super Nationals race programs

BOONE, Iowa (July 21, 2022) – Some fine tuning to the schedule should mean earlier endings to night two of the Prelude and to the final night of the 40th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. The Sport Compact portion of the Prelude moves to the Saturday, Sept. 3 program at Boone Speedway. And IMCA and track officials had announced earlier this month that qualifying for Hobby Stock and Northern SportMod race of champions events will be Monday, Sept. 5 with both ROCs held on Tuesday, Sept. 6. “Moving Sport Compacts to Saturday of the Prelude means Hobby Stocks and Northern SportMods won’t be racing so late in their Prelude show the next night,” IMCA President Brett Root explained. “That will help Hobby Stock and Northern SportMod drivers in their preparation for main event and race of champion qualifying on Monday, and gives Sport Compact drivers another day to get ready for their Tuesday program.” “We’re also considering starting both Prelude events an hour earlier,” added Root, noting that Cody Hicks performs in [Read More]

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 [Read More]
