Here’s a Special New Year present for all you Modified Driver’s and Fans,
We are going all out to celebrate the 30th running of the Modified Plow Boy Nationals on Sunday Night Sept 6th at the High Banked 3/8’s mile oval. To celebrate this historic night Spoon River Speedway will for the first time in its history pay $10,000 to the DirtCar Modified feature winner. This should bring in the best of the best Modified driver’s in the country to try and put their name in the Spoon record books as a Plow Boy Champion. There has been a different feature winner the last 15 years. Nick Hoffman won the rain delayed feature event in 2019. Who will be the first $10,000 to win feature winner at Spoon in 2020? Should be an exciting night of racing so mark it on your calendars now!!! Complete payout and details on the race TBA.
