Voting will be conducted on Tuesday, Sept. 2 in the Fan Zone south of the main grandstand at Boone Speedway for the Hobby Stocks and Northern SportMods; Modified and Stock Car best looking car entries will pull onto the front stretch and be determined by fan acclamation during pre-race ceremonies on Saturday, Sept. 6.
Drivers who win best looking car awards but are not qualified for main events will have their cars on display in the Fan Zone on Saturday evening.
Winners in each division receive trophies. All entries receive mini-doors.
Drivers in all four divisions, as well as the Late Models and Sport Compacts bringing tribute cars to Boone receive $100 gift cards from Speedway Motors.
“We’ve had some great looking cars fitting our theme at the past two events and this year should be no different. The tribute to Speedy Bill is very appropriate for this event and one that has a personal attachment for a variety of IMCA racers,” said Kevin Yoder, director of marketing for IMCA. “We’re looking forward to seeing how creative our members get in honoring a true pioneer and one of the most well-respected men in our industry for over half a century.”
