Saturday News

Saturday’s race program at Boone Speedway began with the 911 tribute cars of Will Brack and Jeff Feaster displayed on the frontstretch and a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the terrorist attack 10 years ago tomorrow.

A recording of 10-year-old Emily Alexander singing the Canadian national anthem – her father Rocky becomes the first Canadian to start a main event at Super Nationals when the Stock Car main takes the track – preceded the always stirring rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, performed by the Boone High School Marching Band.

Potential bonus amounts that could be paid out to Modified drivers already in the main event range from $1,100 to the maximum $5,000.

Along with a $2,000 share of the purse, the Modified champion gets a bonus of $100 for each of as many as 50 sanctioned starts made during the weekly point season. Randy Havlik and J.J. Wise have already topped the 50-start mark.

The Stock Car champ gets another $50 for each start up to 50: Mike Nichols was the only driver over that number excluding starts made the weekend before Super Nationals began.

Six drivers in the Hobby Stock field will chase a maximum bonus of $1,250, getting $25 for each start to 50: Devin Smith, Michael Murphy, Jason Wilkinson, Chad Gentz, Shannon Anderson and Cory Adams.

Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod drivers also chase a $25 per start up to 50 bonus: Jesse Sobbing, Jeremy Embrey, Nick Roberts, Bryan LaRiviere and Doug Smith are in the running for the maximum extra money.
