VINTON, Iowa – Another chapter in IMCA Modified history will be written on Sunday, when the Speed Shift TV Dirt Knights Tour comes to Benton County Speedway. Braaksma owns the distinction of having won tour features in three different states, Park Jefferson Speedway in South Dakota, Buena Vista Raceway in Iowa and Fairmont Raceway in Minnesota. Sunday’s race will be the 10th tour event held at Vinton since 2011. Most of the previous events were mid-May or Memorial Weekend openers; the upcoming race was rescheduled from May 25. The 100th event in tour history will be held at Vinton, the track where the IMCA Modified division first raced more than 40 years ago. Winner of three of the first six Dirt Knights events this season, Ethan Braaksma is poised to become the 11th different champion in as many years the tour has been held.
