rebelracewriter Posted February 10, 2011 Report Share Posted February 10, 2011 HDT OPENER MOVED TO VINTON February 9, 2011 | By: HDT-PR [Vinton, IA] - - The JR Motorsports Hawkeye Dirt Tour for IMCA Modifieds will now start the 2011 racing season at the "Birthplace of IMCA." Tour officials and Benton County Speedway management officially announced today that HDT Opener will be held in Vinton, IA on Tuesday, May 10th. Due to circumstances beyond their control, HDT officials were forced to find a new home for the 2011 HDT Opener. "Benton County Speedway was actually on the original 2011 schedule," informed HDT Race Director Bucky Doren. "We had a race date we both really like, but suddenly there were several bigger events that popped up on the calendar. We both felt it might be too much to ask from the budgets' of race fans and teams. We couldn't find a workable date after that, so we just tabled the idea. Then this opportunity presented itself." A lot of off-season work took place at the Vinton, IA speed plant. The most significant work was the placement of new tile in the corners and pit area. IMCA Modifieds will race for a $1,000 first place prize with $150 going to each who start the HDT A-Main. IMCA SportMods and IMCA SportCompacts are also slated to compete on May 10th. May 12th is earmarked as the official rain date for the HDT Opener. More details on the HDT opener and the upcoming 2011 HDT season will be released soon at www.DirtTour.com. - 30 - Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
