IMCA Late Model, Sprint Car, Stock Car rookies vie for Howards Cams awards

imca_fi_howardsOSHKOSH, Wis. (Feb. 11) – Rookie drivers in three IMCA divisions vie for monthly awards in 2014 from Howards Cams.

Registered first-year competitors in the IMCA Late Model, IMCA Eagle Motorsports RaceSaver Sprint Car and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car divisions winning a feature event become eligible for a monthly drawing for a flat tappet cam.

One cam will be awarded each month April through November. A picture of each Howards Cams award recipient will be published in the Inside IMCA newsletter.

Located in Oshkosh, Wis., Howards begins its sixth season as an IMCA partner and also awards $100 product certifi­cates to designated rookies of the year and special series champions powered by engines built in the aftermarket.

Those recipients include IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified, IMCA Sunoco Stock Car and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock regional rookies of the year, national Late Model, Sprint Car, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod rookies of the year, and the top rookie in the Deery Brothers Summer Series.

Certificates of the same value go to drivers winning Late Model, Sprint Car or Stock Car series titles, as well as to their engine builders. Those awards will be presented during the national awards banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.

Information about Howards Cams products is available by calling 920 233-5228 and at the www.howardscams.com web­site.

“This program has been modified a bit from a similar distribution last year, with the focus being drivers having success during the season and at the end of the year powered by engines assembled by someone in our outstanding network of machine shops and engine builders,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “It will be exciting to see who rises to the top as the year progresses.”
