MENA, Ark. – A company that’s been helping IMCA drivers race their way to the national banquet will be recognized with an award of its own this November.
Brodix is in its 20th season as an IMCA marketing partner. The Mena, Ark., company manufactures the official cylinder heads for IMCA Late Models.
Both the national Late Model and IMCA EMI RaceSaver Sprint Car rookie of the year, and the Deery Brothers Summer Series rookie of the year receive Brodix cylinder head sets again in 2016.
Rookie drivers in both divisions must display two Brodix decals on their race car to be eligible. All three awards will be presented during the national IMCA banquet in November.
“We are very happy with our association with IMCA for the last 20 years. We have participated in many programs and this is one of the most professional,” said Brodix President J.V. Brotherton. “The rookie of the year program is very important to the continued success of short track racing. Brodix has enjoyed being a part of this very successful program.”
National rookies of the year in 2015 were Paul Nagle in the Late Models and Colin Smith in the Sprint Cars. Tyler Droste was the top rookie in the Deery Series.
Information about Brodix-made cylinder heads and intake manifolds is available at the www.brodix.com website, on Facebook or by calling 479 394-1075.
“Twenty years for Brodix as a marketing partner is an outstanding accomplishment and one that we are really proud to recognize in the aftermarket engine component industry,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “Their cylinder heads have been the driving force in the success of our Late Model program and one of the cornerstones for our growing RaceSaver Sprint Car division.”
