ABBOTT, Texas – Mach-1 Racing Solutions returns for a seventh consecutive season as title sponsor of IMCA’s Sport Compact division.
The Gary Mach-owned company, located in Abbott, Texas, again provides a portion of the $1,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in final national standings for the 4-cylinder class.
Mach began giving Sport Compact contingencies in 2009 and became title sponsor for the class in 2011.
This season is the fourth in a five-year sponsorship pact.
Sport Compact champions were crowned at 42 tracks and in 10 states last year. Nate Coopman of Mankato, Minn., won his career fourth national championship while Richard Crow of Grand Island, Neb., earned national rookie of the year honors in 2016.
“This class continues to grow at a surprising rate,” Mach noted. “It encompasses drivers with a passion for racing, from young to old. I am excited for 2017.”
More information about Mach-1 support and consulting services is available by calling 254 537-3040. All drivers in the division are required to display two Mach-1 decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.
“Mach-1 has been synonymous with the IMCA Sport Compact division since its inception and they continue as the division’s title sponsor again in 2017,” commented Kevin Yoder, marketing director for IMCA. “No one has shown more dedication to the growth of this class and we appreciate their support.”
