Simmons Promotions Inc will once again issue a “Declaration of Independence Against Crate Motors” with the Second Annual Aftermarket Nationals” at the Farley (IA) Speedway on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This year’s edition will once again utilize the IMCA Modified and Sport Modified division rules with the exception of NO CRATE MOTORS while doling out more than $50,000 in prize money.

Brandon Wilson, Andy Eckrich, Richie Gustin and Jordan Grabouski rounded out the top five in the 26 car starting field. Eric Pollard used Merfeld Brothers Automotive power to claim the 30 lap Sport Mod feature ahead of Aaron Benson, Paul Nagle, Mark Massey and Dan Mohr.
Sponsors returning for this colossal modified extravaganza include Comp Cams, Comp Performance Group, Manley, Callies Performance Products, Carrillo Rods, CP Pistons and Driven Racing Oil.
