That weekend also marks the finale for the 28th annual Deery Series. “This race was one of the most anticipated on the tour a few seasons back but due to some changes in scheduling we had to discontinue the event,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “However, we’ve added the Liberty 100 to the Deery schedule in 2014 and it gave us the opportunity we were looking for to bring it back through the tremendous support of Ideal Ready Mix.“It will be a ‘can’t miss’ race featuring the best racers on the Deery Brothers Summer Series circuit, not only this year but in our history as well,” he added. More information about the event will be available from Yoder at the IMCA home office, 319 472-2201.
