Design 500 continues Lady Eagle, plus Deery Series and IMCA Modified awards

TUKWILA, Wash. – Design 500 has renewed the popular Lady Eagle award for a ninth consecutive year, its 17th season as an IMCA marketing partner.

Female drivers in all sanctioned divisions are automatically in the running for the award from the Tukwila, Wash., driver suit and ap­parel manufacturer.

The top finisher in combined point standings for those divisions earns a complete set of custom No Fly Zone Pro-Tek CarbonX underwear, which includes a long-sleeved mock turtleneck, long pants, headsock and socks.

The runner-up receives a No Fly Zone Pro-Tek CarbonX tank and shorts while the third place driver earns a $100 product cer­tificate and CarbonX socks.

More than 160 drivers contended for the Lady Eagle in 2014. Hobby Stock competitor Tiffany Bittner won the award for the fourth time.

“The Lady Eagle program is unique in motorsports and we are proud to partner with Design 500 to recognize the accomplishments of our talented female drivers,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “It is fitting to highlight track champions like Erica Buhr and Stephanie Forsberg in conjunction with announcing the renewal of this program at the onset of our 100th anniversary season.”

Design 500 also awards gift certificates at each event in the Deery Brothers Summer Series and at 30 special events for IMCA Modifieds $150 gift certificates.

Third place finishers in each IMCA Late Model tour feature get $150, with $100 for fourth and $50 for fifth.

Product certificates in the same increments go to third, fourth and fifth place drivers at designated specials for the Modifieds.
