And he’ll get it from the pole.
Blochlinger led all 25 laps of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals Modified qualifying feature Wednesday night. He will start at the front of the inside row in the big [...]
BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 5) – Inches made the difference when Donavon Smith won the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals Stock Car championship in 2009.
That modest margin of victory was the same in Wednesday night’s qualifying feature at Boone Speedway.
Electronic timing showed Smith beat Dan Mackenthun to the checkers by all of .043 of a second [...]

Two-time Super Nationals champion Jeff Anderson will start from the pole in tonight’s qualifying feature for Stock Cars.
Anderson owns top trophies from 1995 and 1999.
The one other former champion in the field didn’t fare as well when it came time to draw: 2009 king Donavon Smith will start 16th in the field of 20.
Tom Lathrop of Ottumwa scored a rare repeat, earning Sybesma Graphics Best Looking Car honors in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod division for a second straight year.
He’d won with a football theme last year, and was going to stick with purple in his tribute to American servicemen and women even before IMCA announced that requirement [...]

More rain late Tuesday washed out the seven “B” features for Hobby Stocks. Those races weren’t rescheduled because of the time it would take to make them up on Wednesday and the definite lack of space in the pits for all those cars.
Northern SportMods have flourished in their first season on the West Coast and Keith Brown Jr. of Pittsburg is one of two California drivers in the class at Super Nationals. He’ll take the green flag from 28th in today’s last-chance qualifier.
“We have made major changes during the time we’ve been here,” he said. “We were [...]
