COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. – IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified drivers planning to attend the Cottage Grove Speedway season opener on Saturday, April 4 will be pleased to know that the amount of money to win the feature has been increased.

At the night’s end the main event winner will receive a cool $1,100 courtesy of Crocker’s Cars, making it a very big incentive to tackle the historical 1/4-mile clay oval. The CGS lidlifter is a qualifying event for the 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot.

The IMCA Modified division features some of the most exciting racing that Cottage Grove Speedway has to offer and attracts teams from all over the Pacific Northwest.

Other classes on tap that evening include the 360 sprints, late models and the Quality RV Repair hornets. Also, during intermission a Easter Egg Hunt will take place with 1,100 eggs to be hidden for the kids.
