Record Breaking 30th Annual Super Nationals

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 of2012 Super Nationals 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.

The previous event mark of 843 had been established last year. Two divisional car count records were set and another equaled in 2012.

One hundred and eighty Stock Cars were entered in 2004; there were 49 entries for the Sport Compact debut last year.

Super Nationals in 2004 also saw 153 Hobby Stocks on track.

“It’s no surprise that Super Nationals keeps getting bigger and better,” noted IMCA Vice President of Operations Brett Root. “Super Nationals isn’t just a dirt track race, it’s the premier event bar none in dirt track racing.”
