“Special” is the word for 2012 racing season at the Davenport Speedway. The dirt track at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, will host at least six races that pay $2,000-to-win or more, this year and a number of other special events.
The first big payday will be Friday, April 13th, when the cars and stars of the Corn Belt Clash racing series compete on the big half-mile track. The CBC open late models will be joined by IMCA late models, IMCA modifieds, and street stocks.
The following Friday, April 20th, the Deery Brothers Summer Series for IMCA Late Models will make their first of two treks to Davenport, in 2012. The Deery Brothers Summer Series returns on September 22nd, for the All-Star Classic, which is also the final event of the Deery Brothers season.
Support classes at the Davenport Speedway will also get their chance to shine in 2012. Open wheel stockers will battle for a big payday on May 25th, at the IMCA Modified Madness 50. Street Stocks take center stage on July 13th, with the running of the Street Stock 50. 4-Stocks will be the highlighted class August 10th, at the 4-Stock 50. The feature winner at each of these events will earn a cool $2,000.
The “special” season features several first-time events at Davenport. In addition to the Corn Belt Clash race, the Brockway Mechanical & Roofing Sprint Invaders will appear on September 7th, and the inaugural Night of Destruction at Davenport will be held on September 15th. The Night of Destruction is a combination of cheater’s races for the weekly classes and the ever-popular trailer race.
