The last two days of the newly revived Iron Man challenge are closing in on Fallon. The 10-day challenge, which started Saturday in Tonopah, moves to the Highway 95 A Speedway in Fernley today and Saturday. The challenge ends with its last two days at Rattlesnake Raceway in Fallon on Sunday and Monday as a part of the city’s July 4 celebration.
Racing begins at 7 p.m. but all races will be paused for the fireworks display if not finished beforehand and will resume after. Competition is open to all and is run through the IMCA Modified rules and guidelines with a $1,000 payoff to the winner of each day’s main event. Payoff trickles down to second, third and fourth place depending on turnout, though, Tonopah Speedway, Hawthorne Speedway and Lovelock Speedway have each seen record car turnout for their events, sporting 25-30 cars minimum.
Racers from New Mexico, California, Oregon, and naturally from all over Nevada including Las Vegas and Parumph have all shown up in force to the first six days of competition. Hobbystock races will provide breaks between heats before the main event, giving racers time to rest and tune up.
