Hoffman heads middle row for Saturday’s SportMod main event

Jerry-HoffmanxBOONE, Iowa (Sept. 2) – Jerry Hoffman will make his bid for a career first IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s crown from the front of the middle row on Saturday night.

The gregarious veteran ran second for the last half of Tuesday’s first SportMod qualifier at Boone Speedway. He was promoted to the top spot when Bobby Anders Jr. failed post-race suspension inspection.

Joining Hoffman in transferring to the big dance are fellow top eight qualifiers Tony Olson, Nelson Vollbrecht, Ethan Dotson – now the third Californian to advance – Cory Rose, Tyler Afrank, Taylor Musselman and Benji Legg. Jim Gillenwater was disqualified from third after failing post-race engine inspection.

Olson, now a four-time qualifier for the Saturday show, and Rose both advanced 19 spots from their original starting positions.

Legg made the main event for the third time in his career, Hoffman, Vollbrecht and Rose each for the second. Joining Dotson as first-time qualifiers are Afrank and Musselman.
