MOUNT ULLA, N.C. – IMCA Late Model drivers will share $5,000 in contingency awards from new sponsor Tiger Rear Ends.
The aftermarket rear end manufacturer, located in Mount Ulla, N.C., will give $250 product certificates to top five drivers in point standings for the Deery Brothers Summer Series and national IMCA Late Model point standings for the 2014 and 2015 race seasons.
“We want to get our name out there to more drivers,” said company co-founder and president Gerald Williams. “We want them to know about the quality of our rear ends and the precise machining we do. We use all high-quality parts and everything that can be is made in the United States.”
Tiger opened for business in 2002. Williams’ racing background also includes 10 years as engine builder and crew chief for his brother’s asphalt championship-winning Late Model team.
“This program with IMCA is one way we can get our name out in another series and another sanction,” he said.
Certificates will be presented during the national IMCA awards banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the home office.
Those certificates can be redeemed directly through Tiger.

“We’ve had a void in our Late Model contingency award package for a program of this nature and we’re excited to develop this relationship with Tiger for those racers,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “We’re very appreciative of the support they’ve pledged over the course of the next two seasons.”
