VINTON, Iowa – Nineteen chassis builders from across the country will contend for national and regional honors in the eighth annual IMCA Manufacturers’ Cup contest.
Manufacturers’ Cup standings are based on makes of chassis driven by top 10 drivers in the five Modified regions.
Champions will be named based on points for each individual region while the builder with the highest point total overall will be named IMCA’s national Manufacturer of the Year. They’ll receive a $500 prize and trophy during the national awards banquet in November.
Lethal Chassis of Mooresville, N.C., is a new Cup contest entrant. Jake Murray Race Cars of Hartford is back in the field following a one-year hiatus.
Builders returning to Cup competition are 1st Class Chassis of Great Bend, Kan.; B & B Racing Chassis of Belle Plaine, Minn.; BMS by Xtreme of Great Bend, Kan.; Destroyer Chassis of Kennedale, Texas; Dirt Works Race Cars of Oronogo, Mo., Dream Racing Chassis of Las Vegas, Nev.; GRT Race Cars of Greenbrier, Ark.; Harris Auto Racing of Boone; Impressive Race Cars of Hillsboro, Mo.; Jet Racing of Beatrice, Neb.; Larry Shaw Race Cars of Batesville, Ark.; Phoenix Race Chassis of Nevada, Mo.; Rage Chassis of West Union; Razor Chassis of Platte Center, Neb.; Sidebiter Chassis of Kanawha; Skyrocket Chassis of Fertile; and Victory Race Cars by Billy Moyer of Des Moines.
“It’s always good to add a new builder to this program,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “The focus of our Manufacturers’ Cup is to help builders gain exposure and encourage any driver looking to purchase a chassis to do so from a company that supports IMCA and builds safe race cars.”
All builders entered in the Manufacturers’ Cup contest will have the opportunity to display a car at Boone Speedway during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
BMS is the six-time and defending national Manufacturer of the Year.
