Take a breath, the busy season is upon us

A lot of racing events are about ready to sneak up on all of us. As July approaches and (hopefully) summer weather is here to stay, be sure to stay up-to-date on all of the upcoming racing specials in the coming weeks by checking out the calendar of events at

The excitement starts this week as the American Stock Car Series for IMCA Stock Cars is actually underway tonight at Marshalltown Speedway. That series travels to Buena Vista Raceway in Alta tomorrow before hitting Independence Motor Speedway on Wednesday. The Indee date includes the Deery Brothers Summer Series for IMCA Late Models as that tour makes its 23rd stop in series history at Independence. Those two divisions alone brought in 100 cars at Independence last season. All of the information is included in the poster below. A larger version is located near the very bottom of this page. A press release concerning Wednesday's event is located here.

The Stock Car Series concludes on Thursday night at Lee County Speedway in Donnellson. Also a part of the action during Thursday's Liberty Cup will be the fourth race of the inaugural JR Motorsports Hawkeye Dirt Tour for IMCA Modifieds.

The busy season just keeps getting busier next month at Independence Motor Speedway as the 2010 Buchanan County Fair is scheduled for July 14-19 in Independence. A full schedule of grandstand entertainment is on tap, along with a slew of other fair entertainment. The entire fair schedule may be found on the "Fair Events Schedule" tab on the home page menu of or by clicking here.

The Indee Race Night of Champions is nearing the completion of all heat race qualifying on the Independence Motor Speedway facebook page. If you haven't already added us, be sure to do so and get in on the action as last chance qualifying will fill out the month of July before the four all-time fantasy features take center stage in August. A great success, nearly 250 submit their fantasy results on a regular basis as a new lineup is posted every Friday. The front six rows of three of the four features have already been determined and they are loaded. Be sure to find those lineups and current fantasy race information on the "Notes" tab of the IMS facebook page.

Also on our facebook page, a weekly Fast Track Trivia question is asked, giving fans the chance to win a prize at the races each week. This week, Bryan McCombs won for a record third time in 11 weeks. This time around, he won an Independence Motor Speedway T-shirt autographed by Ray Evernham. A new trivia question is asked every Monday evening.

That's all for now. Another blog will be posted following Wednesday night's race at Independence.
