INDEPENDENCE, Iowa – Persistent heavy rain in recent days has forced the postponement of the Deery Brothers Summer Series for IMCA Late Models event at Independence Motor Speedway.

Originally slated for July 1, it has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 6.

IMCA Hobby Stocks and IMCA Northern SportMods were also scheduled to join the Late Models in the July 1 program and will remain part of the August 6 make-up date.

The winner’s share of the SportMod feature has been raised from $500 to $600. The Hobby Stock feature will also pay $100 more than originally advertised. That feature winner will earn $400.

Start times and prices will remain the same for August 6. Adult grandstand admission is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. Kids 11 and under will be admitted free if accompanying a paid adult. Pit passes are $30.

The next event at the speedway is the IMCA weekly racing program this Saturday, July 5, and will include double features for the IMCA Modified and IMCA Stock Car divisions as a result of the rain-shortened program June 28.

Buy-ins for the make-up features will not be allowed.

Weekly grandstand admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students. Kids 11 and under are admitted free if accompanying a paid adult. Pit passes are $25.

Gates open at 4 p.m. on Saturday, with hot laps at 6 and racing to follow.
