TABLE OF CONTENTS

Right Where He Needs To Be
Ward Imrie made big history last season when he became WISSOTA’s first Modified National Champion from Canada. pg. 14

From the Grass to the Dirt
West Virginia’s Chad Smith really did come up the line of grass roots racing. Before starting on two-wheels in Motocross, he raced Lawn mowers before eventually moving up the ranks to Hot Mods then full-blown Modifieds. pg. 22

Catching Up With Wisconsin’s Trailblazer
It’s a very rare occurrence for any driver still in their 30s to be inducted into a track’s Hall of Fame, but Julie McDermid is that rarity. pg. 27

Their ‘King of America VIII’ Notebook

An Every Night Threat
Defending IMCA Northern SportMod National Champion Tyler Soppe is a threat to win each and every night he gets behind the wheel. The Iowa wheelman is even contemplating taking the next step, and driving a Modified; a move that will surely be watched closely. pg. 44
