GARDEN CITY, Kan. – Five March races get the Dirt Track Central Jax Sports Grille Great Plains Series for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars off to a very fast start.
New title sponsor Jax Sports Grille of Garden City, Kan., provides a portion of the series point fund. The champion earns bonus points applicable toward national and regional point standings.
Ten dates comprise the 2014 tour schedule, starting with $500 to win features March 21 and 22 during Spring Nationals at Beatrice Speedway.
The remaining eight features each pay $750 to win. Those events are March 28 and 29 during the Sunflower Classic at RPM Speedway; March 30 during WaKeeney Spedway’s Spring Fling; April 18 at Dirtona Raceway; April 19 at Dodge City Raceway Park; May 26 at WaKeeney; Aug. 3 at Dawson County Raceway; and Sept. 19 at Thunder Hill Speedway.
Point fund checks will be presented during the national awards banquet or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.
Owned by veteran driver Rodney Wadel, Jax opened in 2006 and boasts a menu with steak and burger favorites.
Jax also hosts receptions, has an outdoor venue for entertainment and does catering. More information is available on Facebook.
Wadel plans to race at three series events this season. Justin Temeyer and Perry Misner will follow the entire tour in Jax cars.
“The partnership with Jax fell into place in 2014 and makes great sense for our Stock Car drivers in the region and beyond,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “Jax Sports Grille is a great place to spend time with friends away from the track and we hope the Great Plains Series has the same attraction for racers at the track.”
Based on forecasted temperatures, Saturday hot laps at Beatrice have been moved to 3:30 p.m. with racing at 4 p.m.
