Officials with the Hancock County Speedway announced recently that MaxYield Seed will continue as title sponsor of the annual IMCA Northern SportMod Nationals held at the Britt, IA track. The event will be presented by Croplan, DeKalb/Asgrow and Latham Hi-Tech Seeds.

“We are pleased to have the support of MaxYield Seed and their partners for the SportMod Nationals. This event has a rich history, and with their support last year, we witnessed an increase in car count in 2014,” track promoter Joe Ringsdorf said.

The event in 2015 will pay $2500 to win with $4000 possible if the winner is a past winner of the event, has raced in Britt at least three times prior, and is a 2015 race winner. Second place is worth $1500, third $1200, fourth $1000 and fifth place pays $700. The driver finishing tenth earns $300.

Ringsdorf said the main event will be 40 laps in length with a 10 minute pit stop at halfway. The race will start 28 cars.

The 2015 edition of the IMCA Northern SportMod Nationals will take place Tuesday, June 23rd.

Clear Lake’s Aaron Benson won $3500 as last year’s champion.

Greg Sidles earned the MaxYield Seed Hard Charger Award, pocketing an additional $100 for advancing 14 spots from his original starting position.

Other past winners include Tim Donlinger – 2007, Nate Chodur – 2008, 2010, 2013, Adam Ackerman – 2009, Doug Smith – 2011, and Matt Lettow in 2012.

The 2009 event featured an event-high car count of 89 cars for the then $2000-to-win event. 47 SportMods competed in last year’s event.
