Boone Speedway Undergoes some renovations!
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.
