LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Regardless of where they call home, all drivers in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car division enjoy regional title sponsorship by EngineQuest again in 2016.
The Las Vegas, Nev., cylinder head and engine component manufacturer provides a portion of $3,750 point funds to be paid to top 10 drivers in both EQ Cylinder Heads Northern and EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Regions.
The Northern Region includes tracks in eastern Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Saskatchewan, South Dakota and Wisconsin while the Southern Region is comprised of tracks in Arizona, California, western Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
“All of us here at EngineQuest are very excited for the 2016 IMCA Stock Car season and to be involved in what we believe to be one to one of the most exciting classes running today,” said National Sales Director Eric Haugland. “With the addition of the 500cfm engine option in the class, the racing has been door-to-door, wide open racing, a real blast to watch as a fan.”
Drivers are required to display two EngineQuest decals on their race car. Both regional champions earn $1,500 shares of the respective point funds, which will be distributed at the national awards banquet in November or mailed from the IMCA home office beginning the following week.
Now in it’s 11th season as an IMCA marketing partner, EQ gives a set of cylinder heads to the national Stock Car champion and to the Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod drivers finishing highest in national standings and competing with EQ heads.
Drivers powered by Mopar engines in Stock Car, Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod to the highest position in national standings also receive a set of cylinder heads.
All Stock Car, Hobby Stock and SportMod track champions receive $50 product certificates. Drivers in the same divisions competing with EQ cylinder heads and winning two or more track championships earn $200 in cash.
More information about EQ-manufactured cylinder heads is available at the www.enginequest.com website.
“Our partnership with EQ has had a variety of elements over the course of the past decade but the current regional title role for our Stock Cars is an excellent fit,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder observed. “Their renewal of this program continues to put them in rare air with aftermarket engine support and for that we are extremely grateful.”
