The flagman is a winner as Kelly tops Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compacts at Britt

BRITT, Iowa (July 1, 2022) – Long-time flagman and part-time Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compact driver Logan Kelly gave young son Hendrick something different to talk about. Kelly went to the high line after racing his way back to the front of the field at Hancock County Speedway en route to his IMCA career first feature win on July 1. “We were just plain fast and for once in my life I didn’t make any mistakes in the race car. That was the big thing. It was a confidence building night,” said Kelly, from Fairmont, Minn., and also a first-time heat race winner Friday night. “Hendrick was pretty excited to see the trophy when he got up the next morning.”  “We’d broken an axle our first week at Britt and he’s been telling people ‘Daddy drove off the track.’ Hopefully we can get him talking about how dad brought home a trophy.”  The site of Kelly’s first win was also special. “It was neat to win here. My dad Jim never raced but he helped other [Read More]


Block provides IMCA Modified fireworks at Outagamie

By Joe Orsini SEYMOUR, Wis. (July 1, 2022) – The Fourth of July weekend kicked off with 180 cars filling the pits at Outagamie Speedway. Each of the drivers wanted to avoid fireworks on the track and enjoy them from victory lane after the races. The Friesen Performance IMCA Modified feature kicked off with Jason Hyerdall and then Dan Roedl in front.  Wyatt Block wasted no time moving into position to challenge as he moved inside Hyerdall to secure second. Block continued to work the groove inside Roedl and fought side-by-side with the leader for multiple laps as Mike Mullen steadily worked the high side into fourth place. At halfway, Roedl led Block, Cody Schroeder, and Mike Mullen.  A lap 12 restart saw Block slice past Roedl into the top spot and try to open a gap on the field.  The closing laps saw Mullen put on a clinic on running the high side in turns one and two as he tickled the wall up top with every lap. When the checkers flew Mullen closed [Read More]

2022 Super Nationals

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]

By Greg Soukup EAGLE, Neb. (June 25, 2022) – Matt Andrews went sailing Saturday night, from row five at the start to victory lane following Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMod main event at Eagle Raceway. Andrews started 10th, snagged the lead with 12 to go and took the checkers ahead of Ryan Argobast and Dana Deeke.  “When you have to start in the back because of the points deal, it’s pretty tough to get to the front. A lot of these guys are really good and that’s the reason they’re out here,” Andrews said. “We’ve struggled getting through them but tonight was our night” “I think we were in second four laps in and I know I looked up at the scoreboard and there were 12 to go when I took the lead,” he added. “From there it was smooth sailing.” Jordan Grabouski won both Friesen Performance IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features.
