BOONE, Iowa – Transponders will be required for all Modifieds during the 29th annual IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Cenex.
With the growing number of tracks that require transponders for weekly programs, drivers can bring their own compatible transponder to Boone Speedway or rent one for just $5 a day. Transponders will be available in the registration tent and a driver’s license or credit card will be held for deposit.
“We will need to match up transponders with drivers when they are registering,” explained IMCA Vice President of Operations Brett Root. “Boone already has the best manual scoring in place but electronic scoring allows us to get unofficial results out to fans around the speedway, the country and the world almost instantaneously.”
MyLaps is the official timing and scoring system of IMCA and Super Nationals. A loop and software installed at Boone this spring enable fans with a smart phone or internet access to get information about finishes, margin of victory, laps completed and lap times.
A wi-fi signal will be broadcast at the track, allowing anyone with a Race Monitor smart phone application on their hand-held device to get MyLaps scoring info.
“They can be in the grandstand, on the catwalk, standing in line at the concession stand or in the campground and stay up to date on results,” Root said. “In addition to the live audiocast, fans will be able to access a custom IMCA Super Nationals website and our Facebook page to get results as each race is completed.”
The custom website is being designed by www.livetiming.net. The live scoring page, combined with live audio, will provide those outside the venue with instantaneous Modified results. Official results, as well as stories and pictures, will continue to be posted on the www.imca.com website.
“Much of this will be new to IMCA and to Super Nationals,” said Root. “As the event continues to grow, we want to continue providing as much of as many different kinds of information to the people who want it. We want to enhance the experience of the fans at Boone and keep fans around the country and the world as up to date as possible.”
