Boone Speedway in Boone, Iowa home of the IMCA Supernationals and weekly summer IMCA shows recently underwent some improvements. They brought in over 1000 semi loads of Iowa black dirt from a local construction site. From the pictures i have seen it looks as if they did not change the actual track surface at all but put a lot of dirt out in the campgrounds area to raise up the section near the river/ravine. Where they added the most dirt though is on the outside of the turns of the track, they added a lot of it to the outside part of the banking to make the drop off from the track a lot more gradual and much safer for drivers who slide off the track on the turns. Overall nothing on the actual racing surface changed about the well known track but the improvements will greatly help the drivers and campers at Boone.

NASCAR and just racing in general, great Ken Schrader will be racing at 5 IMCA Frostbuster events this spring. The tracks and dates are: April 4th at Southern Iowa Speedway, April 5th at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, April 6th at Marshaltown Speedway, April 7th at Boone Speedway and April 8th at Benton County Speedway, all of these tracks are in Iowa. This will be very cool to see and i recommend to anyone that likes IMCA modified racing to go to these shows as Ken Schrader is one of the greats behind the wheel of a Modified.
