U.S. 36 has run the RaceSaver division for two years. The Sprint Series of Nebraska visits there four times this year. “There’s been a lot of interest by drivers who want to run twice a week,” Boller said. “Bethany is only 15 miles or so from the Iowa state line and there are drivers in the Des Moines area who were looking for a place to run on Saturday nights.” “We want to continue building the division and giving those drivers another track to race at 10 nights is one way we can do that,” he continued. Ten dates, all but one of them on Saturday nights, are on the 2020 schedule at Bethany. Opening night is April 25 with points racing slated through Aug. 29. BETHANY, Mo. – IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car drivers have had Jon Boller Jr. on speed dial since his announcement the winged division would be new at his Bethany Speedway this season.

The IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season there runs from April 17 to Aug. 28. Sanctioned Sprints also run Fridays at the Boller-promoted U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn.
