Big Daddy now has new, big role in Southern Hobby Stock Region

NORFOLK, Neb. – Every driver in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock division will be in the running for post-season cash awards from Big Daddy Race Cars.

The Norfolk, Neb., chassis builder becomes title sponsor of the division’s Southern Region while returning for a fourth season in the same role in the Northern Region.

Big Daddy will furnish a portion of the point fund to be paid to the top five drivers in the respective regions. All drivers must display two Big Daddy Race Cars decals to be eligible for point fund shares; those decals will be included in packets mailed beginning in March.

“Adding this title sponsorship helps us gain exposure and hopefully sell more cars in another region, while giving something back financially to more drivers,” said Big Daddy owner Dale Bittner. “Our cars have finished consistently in the top 20 national standings. When I get on the IMCA website to check out points we typically have between five and eight cars in the top 20.”

The first car Big Daddy built in 2005 was actually a Stock Car. Big Daddy-made Hobby Stocks have since raced to national, regional, state and special series titles in addition to numerous track championships.

Tracks in the Big Daddy Race Cars Southern Region are in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Northern Region tracks are in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.

Point fund checks will be presented during the national awards banquet in November.

Information about Big Daddy-built chassis is available by calling 402 371-1927 or 402 841-4119, and on Facebook.

“The success of the title role in the North has parlayed itself into expanding that footprint to the Southern region,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “Big Daddy Race Cars has been very supportive of our Hobby Stock drivers since they began and this is just another step to demonstrate that support.”
