Modified drivers to display home state abbreviations at Super Nationals
BOONE, Iowa - They'll come to Boone from as far away as FL and WY, from TX, CA and maybe even SK and MA.
And all it will take to tell where any I.M.C.A. Sunoco Modified at the upcoming Super Nationals is from will be a look at its roof.
All Modifieds running at the Sept. 3-8 event will have the abbreviations of their driver's home state or Canadian province on the passenger side of the roof. IM.C.A. and Boone Speedway will supply the decals, which can be picked up at the RAY-SON Graphics tent on manufacturers' row, at no cost.
"This is something we thought would be interest-ing for the people watching the races from the grandstand or the cat-walk," ex-plained I.M.C.A. Vice President of Operations Brett Root. "Fans won't have to ask each other 'where is that driver from?' All they'll have to do is look at the car."
"The I.M.C.A. Speedway Motors Super Nationals is fa-mous for the number of drivers who come from so many states to be partici-pate," he added. "The proof will be on the track when people can see all the different abbreviations in every race."
Qualifying for the Stock Car and Hobby Stock divi-sions begins on Monday, Sept. 3. First heat races for the Modifieds are Wednes-day, Sept. 5.
Drivers who are eligible to compete in qualifying for the Sunoco Race Fuels Stock Car Race of Champions will draw for starting positions on Monday.
Those eligible for the Dirt Works Modified Ron Efkamp Memorial Race of Cham-pions will draw on Wednesday.
Both will be conducted during the regular daily draws.
Points and Membership Director Virginia Lindsey will have lists of eligible drivers at the draw table.
Two series races running in conjunction with Super Nationals are the Thursday, Sept. 6 Jackpot Junction Tour event for I.M.C.A. Sprint Cars and the Friday, Sept. 7 Deery Brothers Summer Series I.M.C.A. Sunoco Late Model show.
Providing they meet all other requirements, all drivers, not just those who have raced at the previous Jackpot race(s), will be eli-gible to claim an engine.
National points are awarded for all Jackpot Junction races. Tracks that sanction I.M.C.A. Sprint Cars can also hold points races the weekend of Super Nationals.
The new Super Nationals queen will be crowned during ceremonies preceding the Saturday night show.
The Efkamp and Sunoco races, and features for the Hobby Stocks, Stock Cars and Modifieds will follow.
