ORONOGO, Mo. – More IMCA Modified drivers will race this season for point fund money provided by Eastern Region title sponsor Dirt Works Race Cars.
The new Bay Area Emerald Coast Tour brings the division back to tracks in Alabama and Florida in 2015, while weekly sanctions continue in Michigan and New York. Points earned at the first eight Empire State Series events also figure toward regional standings.
Owned by veteran driver Jerry Hoffman, Dirt Works Race Cars is a sister company to Hoffman Race Cars. The Oronogo, Mo., chassis builder is in its third season as regional title sponsor and provides a portion of the $6,000 to be paid to top 10 drivers in final point standings.
Regional championships pay $2,500. The runner-up earns $1,250, with $625 for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th place.
Drivers are required to display Dirt Works Race Cars decals on their race cars to be eligible for point fund shares. Defending regional champion is Chris Fleming.
“We are really excited about regaining memberships in the southeast and expanding the Dirt Works brand back into that region,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “It is great to see the Dirt Works banner fly over what was once our Gulf Coast Region.”
