LINCOLN, Neb. – Speedway Motors banners will fly at a record number of sanctioned tracks in the United States and Canada in 2016, as America’s Oldest Speed Shop continues its support of drivers in all IMCA divisions.
The Lincoln, Neb., high performance parts manufacturer, retailer and distributor has been associated with the International Motor Contest Association since the 1950’s and returns as title sponsor of IMCA Weekly Racing for a ninth consecutive season.
Speedway Motors also continues its title sponsorship of the biggest dirt track racing event in the world. Boone, Iowa, Speedway is the site of the 34th annual Super Nationals Sept. 5-10, hosting an anticipated 880-plus cars and 30,000 fans.
“It’s a great honor for Speedway Motors to continue its sponsorship of IMCA Weekly Racing and the spectacular Super Nationals,” said Speedway Motors President Clay Smith. “IMCA has stayed true to its mission of providing affordable, competitive and exciting racing opportunities for racers across the country, and it’s exciting for the Speedway Motors team to support that tradition. We look forward to serving IMCA racers in all their efforts in 2016.”
Now in the fourth year of its latest five-year program, Speedway Motors provides jackets, promoter and tech official shirts, discounts on tech inspection equipment, flags and signage to help IMCA tracks defray costs of weekly programs, plus decals, driver’s suit patches and feature winner hats.
Drivers in all sanctioned divisions who fill out and return rookie application forms to the IMCA home office receive $100 gift cards, along with a T-shirt and decal from Speedway Motors following first rookie year feature wins.
Ninety-two rookie winners received gift packages in 2015.
Post-season awards are also part of the Speedway Motors program as the highest eligible finisher in Modified and Stock Car regional standings, and Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod national standings all receive a pair of Tru Coil springs.
Drivers in all four divisions must fill out and return the sign-up form they receive in decal packets to make themselves eligible for those contingencies.
“There isn’t much to say about our relationship with Speedway Motors that hasn’t already been said,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder noted. “We’ve both been around longer than anyone in the industry and are very proud to have developed lasting personal friendships in addition to professional partnerships. We’ll both continue to do what we do best, and do it better than anyone else.”
