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 [...]
An event record 870 cars will have competed at this year’s Super Nationals by the time the final checkers fly at Boone Speedway following the conclusion of Wednesday’s race program.
That number includes 251 Modifieds, 189 Stock Cars, 180 Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, 153 Hobby Stocks, 55 Mach-1 Sport Compacts and 42 Late Models.

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 [...]

The Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational candidate is also eligible to qualify for the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions. Punching his ticket to the big show on [...]
He’s already got 10 feature wins, a pair of checkers in the Bruns Memorial Series and the Powder Werks North Star Series title to his credit this season, but you can’t blame Dustin Larson for wanting more.
Larson made the Saturday night show in the Hobby Stocks in 2010 and the Stock Cars in 2011, starting [...]
