Every summer, the Central Iowa Fairgrounds resonate with the roars of high-octane beasts. After hibernating in garages and nests made entirely out of repurposed jumper cables, the IMCA modified cars, stock cars, sport mods, hobby stocks, sport compacts, and mod lites return to the 1/4-mile track to spin their wheels and strive for glory. With each lap, the cars zoom past the grandstands, kicking up dirt as they push the limits of the high-banked, oval track and its menacing clay surface.
