Early entries total 518 for next week’s IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals


BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 5) – A record 518 early entries are in hand for the Sept. 7-12 IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals.


That number includes a handful of entries received Friday but postmarked on or before the Aug. 31 deadline.


A total of 213 drivers registered ahead of time for last year’s Super Nationals, which drew an all-time best 825 cars in six divisions.


Modified entries are from 170 drivers representing 18 states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Texas.


One hundred and sixteen Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod entries have been received from seven states: Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.


The 113 Stock Car entries come from 10 states: Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas and Wisconsin.


One hundred and two Hobby Stock drivers are pre-entered from nine states: Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin.


Fourteen Late Model drivers, from Iowa and Illinois, are entered in the opening night Deery Brothers Summer Series feature.


Three entries have been received for the Sept. 8 Sprint Car feature, the final event in the Jackpot Junction Tour.


“A few final details remain to be ironed out, but we anticipate the 27th annual Super Nationals to be the best yet,” said IMCA Vice President of Operations Brett Root. “A new qualifying format is in place for Modifieds and Race of Champions events will be held for the first time for both the Hobby Stocks and SportMods.”


“The weather forecast looks outstanding,” he added, “and with the earlier 3 p.m. start, we expect to have each show completed in a timely manner.”


Jay Noteboom will get the opportunity to race for a third Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational title.


The Hinton, Iowa, hotshoe was added to the field yesterday for the 10-car, $1,000 to win Modified race next Friday, Sept. 11 during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals.


Rich Lewerke of Garner, Iowa, had been elected to fill one of two starting spots allotted to ButlerBuilt North Central Region drivers, but will not be able to compete at Super Nationals. The driver with the next highest vote total, Nate Caruth of Ames, Iowa, will be playing in a high school football game that evening and had to pass on filling Lewerke’s spot.


Noteboom, the 2005 and defending race winner, had the next highest vote total in the region. The All-Star start will be his career fifth.


Also set to take the green flag in the 10-lap contest are David Murray Jr. of Oberlin, Kan., winner of the 2004 and 2007 All-Star races, Ricky Alvarado of Delta, Colo, Chris Bragg of Springtown, Texas, Dale Caswell of Central Square, N.Y., Brian Mullen of Seymour, Wis., Kevin Stoa of Salisbury, N.C., Jeff Taylor of Cave City, Ark., Gabe Tucker of Carbon, Texas, and Tim Ward of Mesa, Ariz.
