Track championship and Super Nationals awards highlight Fast Shaft’s IMCA program 

DES MOINES, Iowa – Axle Exchange, the parent company of Fast Shafts, enjoys another high visibility season of IMCA partnership, comple­menting track championship awards with a title sponsor role at the biggest dirt track racing event in the nation.

The 400 local track champions crowned in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified, IMCA Late Model, IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Scoggin-Dicky Parts Center Southern SportMod all receive two $25 product certificates from the Des Moines, Iowa, manufacturer of the Fast Shafts brand of drive shafts.

Fast Shafts returns to national decal programs for the Stock Cars, Northern SportMods and Southern SportMods. Drivers in all three divisions must display two Fast Shafts decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.

Track champion product certificates and point fund checks will be presented during the national banquet in November, or be mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.

Axle Exchange, now in its 14th season as a marketing partner with IMCA, also returns as sponsor of the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational and furnishes a portion of the purse paid to the 30 Modified starters in the Sept. 9 special during the IMCA Speedway Motors Su­per Nationals fueled by Casey’s.

Each of those drivers will receive a free custom Velocita fire suit and mini replica driveshaft from Axle Ex­change.

“The exciting development with the Fast Shafts program revolves around the fire suits that will be provided to the drivers voted into the All-Star Invitational,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “Axle Exchange has teamed up with Velocita to pull this off once we find out who the participants will be, and it will be a one-of-a-kind experience for those drivers.”

“Brad Smith from Velocita Race Suits and I are very excited about the upcoming Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational for 2016. Partnering with Velocita is a perfect fit for this event,” said Pat Fagen, Fast Shafts founder and president. “We have been giving a free 2” Moly driveshaft since the beginning and just thought it was time to change it up. The mini driveshaft with the IMCA Fast Shafts logo and the driver’s name on it was a big hit last year. I can’t wait.”

One hundred and ten different drivers from 25 states and two Canadian provinces have taken the green flag in the All-Star main event since the inaugural invi­tational in 2004.
