BEATRICE, Neb. – Jet Racing reaches one IMCA sponsorship milestone and nears another in 2016.
This race season is the Beatrice, Neb., chassis builder’s fifth consecutive as title sponsor of IMCA’s Central Region for Modifieds. This is also the 19th straight year Jet has partnered with IMCA in providing cash or contingency awards.
Owned by four-time IMCA Modified national champion Johnny Saathoff, Jet Racing backed special events and Stock Car and Hobby Stock regions before taking over title sponsorship of the Modified Central Region, which includes tracks in Arkansas, eastern Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
A point fund totaling $6,000 will be paid to top 10 drivers in that region. The champion earns $2,500 and the runner-up $1,250, with $625 paid for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th place.
Drivers are required to display two Jet Racing decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.
Jet Racing also sells high performance parts and automotive accessories in addition to building Modified, Northern SportMod, Stock Car and Hobby Stock chassis.
“It is a real testament to Jet Racing that as some regional chassis builders have come and gone over the past two decades, they have continued to remain competitive and build championship IMCA race cars across a variety of divisions,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder commented. “We certainly endorse Jet cars and look forward to another season of successful partnership.”
