The Modified car count is up more than 20 from last year; total car count is currently 865, the second highest number in the 32-year history of Super Nationals.
“Our car count is a reflection of our weekly racing. As our membership grows, so does the popularity of Super Nationals,” IMCA Vice President of Operations Brett Root said. “Plus, it’s a really cool place to be.”
“This year’s Super Nationals is also a very fitting way to remember ‘Speedy’ Bill Smith and all that he and Speedway Motors have done for IMCA for so many years,” Root added.
Thirty Modified heats and 20 Stock Car heats are on the Wednesday card. Two qualifying features will be held for each division to determine the front eight starters on the inside row of Saturday main events.
Six drivers advance from last-chance features to the back two rows of Saturday main events for the Hobbies and the SportMods.
