Boone Speedway will again be the place for racing in 2017 as it celebrates its 50th Anniversary. Dubbed “Iowa’s Action Track,” the 3/8-mile high-banked dirt oval will draw race fans from all over the region for its weekly racing programs and from all over the country for special events. The home of the IMCA (International Motor Contest Association) Super Nationals, more than 900 race teams converged on the facility for six days of racing action in 2016. The event kicks off Labor Day, Mon., Sept. 4th and runs through Sept. 9th in 2017. Modified, Stock Car, Late Model, Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod, Southern SportMod and Sport Compact champions will be crowned throughout the week during the season-ending special event. IMCA’s premier event has found a permanent home at Boone Speedway and has been held there for more than 25 years after making stops in Vinton, Independence, West Liberty, Mason City and Knoxville in its early days. Called “America’s Racin’ Vacation,” drivers and race fans from all over the country and Canada make the annual trek to Boone for the week-long event. They fill the numerous area hotels and camp grounds. The convenience of camping at the track is also a popular option. Those spots are available by visiting www.raceboone.com or www.IMCA.com and registering by the end of July. Prior to Super Nationals, weekly racing – Saturday nights from April through August – will highlight the racing calendar for most of the season. Modifieds, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks and Northern SportMods return to do battle in weekly action this season. Added to the weekly program will be IMCA sanctioned RaceSaver Sprint Cars. The weekly program will start April 15, one week after the season-opening Frostbuster special event. Other special events on the schedule include the annual visit by the Deery Brothers Summer Series for IMCA Late Models on Memorial Day and the annual Eve of Destruction, held on the July 4th holiday.
