It would be great to get together while we’re there for the racing and do something else enjoyable.”  Contestants can prepare as many as three forms of meat (pork ribs, pulled pork and/or chicken) and must prepare enough food for five judges. Entry fee will be $25 regardless of how many forms of meat are prepared. “Turn-in containers should be picked up at VIP [Read More]

Building on success, Berry to raise bar for Super Nationals

NEWBURG, N.D. – He’s already had a season full of career highlights, but Tom Berry Jr. will be looking to raise the bar again at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. “We’re going to go to Boone with the goal of making the show. Once you qualify, you can race hard and try to win the thing,” said Berry, from Newburg, N.D., and most recently winner of Han­cock County Speedway’s Night of 10,000 Stars IMCA Modified man event. “We’re already in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational and are eligible to qualify for the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champi­ons. I think we’re going to have a pretty good week.” The Oregon native began racing in the Midwest in 2016. He now lives in North Dakota, girlfriend Mayce Brodehl’s home state, and works for a construction company.  Running with many of the top shoes from North Dakota as well as the region and nation, he won 10 of his first 25 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing starts this season, with another dozen top [Read More]

Defying the odds, Smith returns to race and represent PA in All-Star Invitational

COLUMBIA CROSSROADS, Pa. – A year and a half ago, doctors were telling Brad Smith he’d never race again.  In July, his family, friends and fellow IMCA Modified drivers were calling and texting to congratu­late the Columbia Crossroads, Pa., driver on his election to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. He’ll become just the second Pennsylvania driver in the 16-year history of the event to start the Friday night special at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.  “Words can’t describe it,” said Smith, who had earned his place on the All-Star ballot by topping Summer Nationals at Outlaw Speedway. “I’ve been to Boone the last four years. See­ing all that takes place makes my hair stand up. The All-Star Invitational is one of the most prestig­ious races in IMCA.”  Being able to race was first and foremost in his mind following a Jan. 12, 2018 traffic accident on his way home from work, after staying late to wrench on a race car at his shop in Horseheads, N.Y.  The head-on crash left Smith [Read More]

Drivers must pre-enter for Super Nationals to compete in Aug. 31 Prelude at Boone

BOONE, Iowa – Modified, Stock Car, Northern SportMod and Hobby Stock drivers must be pre-entered for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s to compete in the Saturday, Aug. 31 Wild Rose and Casino Resort Prelude at Boone Speedway. “There were approximately 240 cars entered in the Prelude last year. Those types of numbers have a tremendous effect time-wise on the sign-in and lineup process,” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “Accepting unexpected and large numbers of late entries effects the entire process and would result in a late start and late conclusion to the Prelude race program.”  The Prelude Modified feature pays $1,000 to win and is a qualifying event for the 2020 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National and E3 Spark Plugs Iowa State points will be awarded in all four divisions. Modifieds earn Side Biter Chassis North Central Region points, with EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region points going to the Stock Cars and Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region points to the Hobby Stocks.  Grandstand admission [Read More]
