Home region points given at special events

for IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars, Hobby Stocks


VINTON, Iowa (Jan. 19) – IMCA Modified, Stock Car and Hobby Stock driv­ers competing at approved special events around the country can take points earned at those races back to their home region this sea­ son.


“Earning points at a cou­ple special events early or late in the season allows more drivers the opportunity to get closer to the 50 race cap we introduced for na­tional and regional points last year,” explained IMCA Vice President of Opera­tions Brett Root.


“Statistically, two thirds of our drivers race once a week,” he added. “If those drivers want the opportunity to race more often for points, our system should encourage that.”


The Ice Bowl at Tal­ladega Short Track was the first event on the list of designated specials. Home region points will also be given throughout the Winter Series at West Valley Speedway, at the Feb. 9-10 Mardi Gras Bash at Deep South Speed­way and at the Feb. 23-25 Ice Breaker at Abilene Speed­way.


“There are necessary reasons why we have had regional boundaries and 50 race caps in the past,” Root said. “But in certain instances those caps pe­nalize racers and sanctioned tracks and their special events, and we have to ad­dress those issues. We want IMCA drivers to attend spe­cial events whenever possible and the 50 race cap which we put into place last season addresses any racer who is attempting to gain an unfair advantage by simply racing more nights.”


IMCA will reserve the right to designate the spe­cials at which home region points are awarded to all drivers.


No out of region points will be awarded for travel­ing drivers competing at weekly sanctioned pro­grams.
