Tire Demon auction and matching funds go to research, cure of rare genetic disorder DLG4

BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 21, 2023) – Money raised in the auction before the auction on the final night of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s goes to a cause close to the heart of Modified champion Tim Ward. The Tire Demon variable speed tire machine he received as part of the champion’s awards sold for $2,800 in bidding that preceded the traditional Super Nationals-ending engine auction. Tire Demon owner Tim Love matched that amount and Ward chose to donate the total of $5,600 raised to the Hope For Harvey Foundation, to help fund research toward a cure for DLG4, a rare genetic disorder that impairs development in some 60 known case in the United States. One of those 60 is the namesake of the foundation and three-year-old cousin of Ward’s girlfriend Kenze Smith. “DLG4 is the specific gene that impacts how his body produces a protein and effects his body and development skills,” she explains. “Funds raised in the auction at Super Nationals go toward research to improve quality of life.” “Tire [Read More]

BOONE, Iowa (September 20, 2023) – The auction champions’ engines added another $34,000 to the Saturday night purse paid at the 41st annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.

And the engine that Tim Ward won both the Double Down Prelude and the Modified main event sold for $6,900, generating another $215.63 for each of his Saturday night competitors.

Munoz takes care of business, races into Super Nationals Stock Car Dance

LAMAR, Colo. – After he rolled under the radar into Boone Speedway, Angel Munoz raced his way into Saturday’s Big Dance. From Lamar, Munoz was runner-up in the first qualifying feature on Wednesday night, becoming the first driver from Colorado to earn a starting spot in the Stock Car main event since the division was added to the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s program in 1988. “It’s hard to explain how special this is. We only see this atmosphere once a year. Being a one-car operation, it’s awesome to know we can be competitive,” said Munoz. “We didn’t let the fact that there were 259 other Stock Cars here distract us. It’s an honor to be one of the top 30 guys on the stage.” Munoz is going on 11 years in The Class Too Tough To Tame and had 22 starts this season before running fifth in the Wild Rose Casino Double Down Prelude that led up to Super Nationals. “I’ve been kind of a one-man band this year,” said Munoz, who began [Read More]

Hard working Ward rewarded with IMCA Super Nationals Modified championship

BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 9, 2023) – Tim Ward’s run to the Modified championship at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s was even more spectacular than the fireworks displays that preceded and followed it. The Arizona native and Iowa transplant led the last half of Saturday’s 40-lap finale at Boone Speedway, ultimately outdistancing 2021 champion Cody Laney to earn his first title and $10,000. The 41st annual Super Nationals brought a record 1,017 cars to Boone, 17 more than the previous mark set just last September. “You have to work so hard to make the show, let alone win the thing,” said Ward, who’d begun his week at Iowa’s Action Track with the checkers in the Wild Rose Casino Double Down Prelude. “Two years ago I ran second to Cody and I was probably the grumpiest guy in the pits. I felt like I made a couple mistakes that night and I knew what it was like to get close to winning Super Nationals.” He chased Laney again on Saturday, finally pulling alongside on lap 19 [Read More]
