Princeton opens May 1 with IMCA Modifieds, Northern SportMods, Sport Compacts

PRINCETON, Minn. – Three IMCA divisions will have another regular weekly home in central Minnesota, when Princeton Speedway opens for the season on May 1.

IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts run on Fridays on the quarter-mile Mille Lacs County Fairgrounds dirt venue.

IMCA Eagle Motor Sports Sprint Cars join May 15, June 26, July 24 and Sept. 18 shows at Prince­ton. The IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season concludes with the Sept. 25 and 26 P-Town Showdown special.

“I really like the way IMCA programs are run,” said promoter and general manager Mary Beth Cripe. “IMCA puts the drivers first. Other sanctioning bodies don’t always do that.”

“The IMCA divisions are also very competitive,” she added. “You don’t have the same guy win­ning week after week.”

Like IMCA, NAPA Auto Parts will have a prominent role at Princeton Speedway this season.

In addition to taking over title sponsorship of victory lane, NAPA will give $25 gift cards to hard chargers in main events for each division every Friday night.

Modified points earned at Princeton figure toward IMCA’s Belleville Motorsports North Central Region standings. Modified, SportMod and Sport Compact track champions all earn bonus points; no bonus points will be awarded but a track champion will also be crowned in the Sprint Car divi­sion.

Other weekly classes include the Mod-4s, street stocks and super stocks.

Pit gates open at noon for the 1-5 p.m. Saturday, April 25 test and tune session. Car and driver is $30 while pit passes for crew members are $10.

Main grandstand admission for spectators is free.
