Fast Shaft’s 15th IMCA program to feature All-Star Invitational, track champion awards

DES MOINES, Iowa – Two of the biggest events on the IMCA calendar shine the spotlight on Axle Exchange again in 2017.

In its 15th season of sponsorship, Axle Exchange returns as sponsor of the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational and furnishes a portion of the purse paid to the 30 Modified starters in the Sept. 8 special during the IMCA Speedway Motors Su­per Nationals fueled by Casey’s.

Each of those drivers receives a free custom Velocita fire suit and mini replica driveshaft from Axle Ex­change, the Des Moines, Iowa, manufacturer of the Fast Shafts brand of drive shafts.

And all IMCA Modified, IMCA Late Model, IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Scoggin-Dicky Parts Center Southern SportMod track champions attending the national banquet in November receive a pair of $25 product certificates. 

“When the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational had to be rescheduled for Saturday at last year’s Super Nationals because of rain, we missed the opportunity for an autograph session with the drivers,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “However, it did allow us to capture a group photo on the infield stage with them all in their custom Velocita fire suits, and that was an impressive sight. We’re pretty excited to give it another go this summer and bring back that fan interaction with the best Modified drivers in the nation.”

Fast Shafts returns to national decal programs for the Stock Cars, Northern SportMods and Southern SportMods and drivers in all three of those divisions are required to display two Fast Shafts decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.

One hundred and eighteen different drivers from 25 states and two Canadian provinces have taken the green flag in the All-Star main event since the inaugural invi­tational in 2004.
