Boone Speedway set for silver anniversary Super Nationals Sept. 3-8

 

BOONE, Iowa (Aug. 25) – A silver anniversary celebration is in the works for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals at Boone Speedway.

 

The 25th annual event opens on Monday, Sept. 3, and runs through Saturday, Sept. 8. All 16 drivers who have won Modified titles at Super Nationals since 1983 have been invited to Boone as special guests and will be recognized during pre-race ceremonies leading off the final day’s program.

 

Special awards will be given to five-time winner and 16-time Modified feature qualifier John Logue of Boone, and to Rex Merritt of Billings, Mo., who has competed at every Super Nationals since 1986.

 

“Super Nationals has come a long way since its first year, when the total car count was all of 44 Modifieds,” IMCA President Kathy Root said. “The anniversary event is the perfect occasion to honor the drivers who have helped make Super Nationals the premier race for Modifieds in the country.”

 

Champions will be crowned in six divisions, beginning Monday when the Deery Brothers Summer Series for Late Models heads the Labor Day program. The Jackpot Junction Sprint Car Tour gets top billing on the Tuesday card. Saturday’s show boasts features for the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, Hobby Stocks, Stock Cars and Modifieds.

 

The Fast Shafts All-Star Modified Invitational is on Friday; the Sunoco Race Fuels Stock Car Race of Champi ons and Harris Auto Racing Ron Efkamp Memorial Race of Champions for Modifieds are on Saturday.

 

Racing starts at 5 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Satur day.

 

Boone Speedway celebrates a Super Nationals anniversary of its own in 2007, as the Robert Lawton and Everett Sather-promoted track hosts the event for the 20th consecutive year.

 

The first Super Nationals was held in Vinton and traveled to Independence, West Liberty, Knoxville and Ma son City before moving permanently to Boone in 1988.

 

A record 789 cars in the six divisions were in the pits at Boone last year.
