Junction Motor Speedway switches sanction to IMCA

McCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. ­ – Junction Motor Speedway sports four IMCA divisions on Saturday race programs beginning this season.

Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts will run weekly at McCool Junction, formerly NASCAR sanctioned.

“There are a lot of local IMCA cars that we’ll be able to share with other tracks,” explained promoter Delmar Friesen, citing sanctioned tracks in the area that run on Thursday, Friday and Sunday nights. “We didn’t have anyone around to share with when we were NASCAR. Probably 90 percent of the cars around here are IMCA.”

A test and tune session is now scheduled for April 2.

The tentative IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season at Junction Motor Speedway runs from April 30 through Sept. 3.

All four IMCA divisions take the place of classes that ran in 2015 at McCool Junction and will be on the card for a mid-August special.

“Most of the responses we’ve gotten (regarding the change in sanction) have been positive,” Friesen said. “The drivers are looking forward to having another track where they can race for IMCA points.”

Weekly Modified points earned at Junction Motor Speedway figure in IMCA’s Jet Racing Central Region. Hobby Stock points count in the Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region.

A foot of dirt was added all the way around the 3/8-mile oval two years ago; Junction Motor Speedway opened in 2004.
