BATESVILLE, Ark. – Modified drivers at a record number of tracks in IMCA’s Western Region will enjoy the title sponsorship support of Larry Shaw Race Cars for a fourth consecutive season in 2015.
The Batesville, Ark., chassis builder again provides a portion of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in official standings for the region encompassing Arizona, California, western Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, northern New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming.
Drivers are required to display two Larry Shaw Racing decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares. The champion earns $2,500, with $1,250 for second, $625 for third, $325 for fourth and $300 for fifth.
Sixth through 10th place finishers each receive $200.
Sanctioned Modified events are scheduled at 50 tracks in the region this year. That’s the highest number of sanctions since IMCA resumed keeping regional standings in 1993.
“This region continues to grow and the support of Larry Shaw Race Cars has been vital to the stability in the region,” stated IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “Last season Zane DeVilbiss captured a national championship out of the Larry Shaw Western Region and I am sure the West will continue to represent itself at the top of our national point standings.”
