BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 7) – Kyle Prauner will start from the pole in Saturday’s main event for Northern SportMods at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Prauner drove high around defending champion Johnathon Logue on the 20th of 25 laps in winning the coveted starting position in Monday’s opening night qualifying feature at Boone Speedway. Tony Olson passed Logue for second; a late caution erased Logue’s bid to regain the lead and he chased Prauner and Olson the last three times around the oval. Completing the top eight finishers and the rest of the inside row were Matthew Looft, Jared VanDeest, Nelson Vollbrecht, Jacob Krone and Sam Wieben. Logue restarted inside row one following a caution on the initial start. The race was red-flagged after Brandon Williams got into the wall and rolled on the backstretch on lap 21. VanDeest raced his way into a qualifying spot from 25th starting; Vollbrecht and Wieben started side-by-side in the 14th row. Olson will make his career fifth Saturday night start at Super Nationals. Logue and Vollbrecht are [Read More]
BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 7) – Mike Pruitt and John Watson punched their tickets to front row starting spots in Saturday’s Hobby Stock main event, with qualifying feature wins on opening night of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Pruitt, the 2009 Northern SportMods champion, raced from 12th starting to win the first qualifier and earn the pole start in the big dance at Boone Speedway. He caught race-long leader Adam Armstrong on the 21st of 25 laps and took the checkers ahead of Myles Michehl. Watson took over the front spot just before midway in the second qualifier and held off Eric Stanton the last half of the contest. He’ll start in the middle of the front row on Saturday. Last year’s runner-up, Pruitt started sixth and reined in Nathan Ballard before catching Armstrong, who rolled in the first set of turn to bring a stop to the first qualifier with three laps to go. Ballard fell off the pace and Michehl took up the chase but didn’t have enough time to catch Pruitt. [Read More]

Riley Raynard doesn’t let Duchenne Muscular Dystophy slow him down. He’s living a dream racing at his first Super Nationals. Just a couple weeks removed from his 18th birthday, the Lampman, Sask., hotshoe and family loaded up the trailer for the 15-hour trip to Boone. “It’s amazing,” he said, just prior to starting the second Hobby Stock heat. “I know from hot laps there are long straightaways and sharp corners here.” “The other guys I’ve talked to about racing here told me to go out and do my best. Racing at Super Nationals is something I’ve always wanted to do,” he added. Recipient of the prestigious Ken Schrader Real Racer Award, Raynard is runner-up in points at Estevan Motor Speedway and will also be among the drivers attempting to qualify for the Stephenville Starter Race of Champions.
