Plato named new director of IMCA’s South Central Region


SPRINGTOWN, Texas (Feb. 22) – Davey Plato will be on the job as IMCA’s new South Central Region director when the first green flag waves tonight for Abilene Speedway’s season-opening Ice Breaker special.


While making visits to tracks around the region, he’ll be the contact person for promoters, local tech officials and drivers, and help monitor contingency programs to ensure required decal usage.


“I want to continue developing consistency in rules, procedures and tech inspection throughout the region,” said Plato, whose family has operated Boyd Raceway since 1997. “The growth of the Southern SportMod division is going to re­quire more attention as the rules develop and it’s also important to help the Stock Car division along as much as possi­ble.”


“I like IMCA as a company and I like the people who work for them,” he added. “It seems like a natural fit for me.”


“Davey has considerable experience promoting weekly and special events, as well as working at events such as the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals. He understands the importance of consistent, uniform

rules and their enforce­ment,” said Brett Root, vice president of operations for IMCA. “I know he’ll do a good job taking over for Tommy Simons as director of the South Central Region.”




Destroyer Chassis returns as title sponsor

for IMCA Southern Stock, Hobby regions


KENNEDALE, Texas (Feb. 22) – Southern regions for IMCA Sunoco Stock

Cars and Hobby Stocks will again be sponsored by Destroyer Chassis.


The Kennedale chassis builder will provide a portion of the point

Stock Cars and to the top five finishers in point standings for the

Southern Region for Hobby Stocks.


Drivers in both divisions must display two Destroyer Chassis decals

on their race car to be eligible for any share of point fund awards.


The regional Stock Car champion earns $1,500, with $700 for second,

$350 for third through fifth and $100 for sixth through 10th.


Top honors in the region for Hobby Stocks pays $250, with $100 going

to the runner-up and $50 each for the third, fourth and fifth place



The 2008 season is Destroyer’s eighth as title sponsor for the Stock

Car region and second for the Hobby Stock region.


Information about Destroyer-made chassis is available by calling 817



“Not only does Destroyer build new IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby

Stocks, but they also repair them as well as anyone in the region,”

said IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “It is important to give

Darryl Campbell at Destroyer a call when you are ordering a new car

during the winter, but equally important to do so when your car needs

repaired during the summer.”
