Frostbuster opener scheduled for April 6

BOONE, Iowa – The annual season-opening event at Boone Speedway has long been known as the Frostbuster. That name may be more fitting than ever for this year’s installment.

With cooler than normal temperatures and lingering winter conditions, track workers are keeping an eye on the weather and hoping to get the April 6 event in without a hitch.

Part of those preparations have included repairing the well-known jet dryer that suffered engine problems during last September’s IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals. Promoter Robert Lawton traveled across the country to Las Vegas to purchase a new jet motor for the ailing machine.

The April 6 event is scheduled to include IMCA sanctioned Modifieds, Stock Cars, SportMods and Hobby Stocks. Pit gates open at 2 p.m. on race day, with hot laps scheduled for 4 and the first green flag of the season to wave at 5.
