IMCA Modified, Late Model drivers vie for Sweet steering boxes again in 2017

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The manufacturer of the official steering box of IMCA returns to its very integral role in contingency awards programs for two divisions in 2017.

Champions in each of the five Modified regions and the top driver in national Late Model point standings all earn steering boxes from Sweet Manufacturing. Second through fifth place finishers in each Modified region receive $50 gift certificates.

Drivers in both divisions must compete with two Sweet Manufacturing decals on their race cars to be eligible.

Recipients of steering boxes awarded at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s will include Modified and Late Model champions, plus the Modified front row starters, longest tow qualifier, top non-qualifier in points, the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions and Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational winners, and best appearing car contest winner.

The final steering box to be awarded as part of the 2017 Sweet program will go to the Modified winner of the Duel In the Desert at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in November.

“Sweet Manufacturing is honored to continue our relationship with IMCA and all of its members,” said Sales Manager Joe Metzger. “Everyone at Sweet Manufacturing is very proud to say that we produce the official steering box of IMCA.”

Sweet Manufacturing, of Kalamazoo, Mich., is in its third year as part of the national decal program for IMCA Modifieds. Information about steering boxes and other products from the eight-year IMCA sponsor is available by calling 800 441-8619, on Facebook and at the website.

“Sweet is a tremendous supporter of IMCA racing and we give away a lot of steering boxes throughout the year on behalf of that support,” commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “They are always one of the first to renew their program with us and 2017 is no exception.”
