Performance Bodies continues IMCA support for 35th season, giving $25,000-plus in awards

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – A company with one of the longest records of IMCA support is back on board in 2017 with another more than generous program of awards.

Performance Bodies is in its 35th season as an IMCA sponsor. The Cedar Falls, Iowa, high performance au­tomotive parts retailer and race car body manufacturer will give product awards and gift cards valued in ex­cess of $25,000 to drivers in seven sanctioned divisions.

“Performance Bodies has enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with IMCA Racing for the last 35 years and we look forward to partnering with them long into the future,” Scott Braun, owner of Performance Bodies explained. “Our goal is to bring the Weekend IMCA Racer the best quality parts available, unsurpassed customer service, same day shipping, and free technical support from a staff of knowledgeable racers.”

Performance Bodies returns to national decal programs for both the IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock divisions and drivers in both divisions must display two Performance Bodies decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.

An MD3 Mod valance and rocker panel kit or spruce-up special will be awarded to second through sixth place drivers in point standings and second through fourth place finishers in rookie standings in each of the five Modified regions; and second through sixth place finishers in national points and runners-up in rookie of the year standings for Karl Chevrolet Northern and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod divisions.

Top 10 drivers in the Deery Brothers Summer Series receive an MD3 Late Model nose, a pair of molded dirt fenders and headlight and valance package. Top 10 finishers in both IMCA Sunoco Stock Car and both Hobby Stock regions, and national rookies of the year in both divisions earn nosepiece and headlight decal kits.

Performance Bodies is also primary sponsor of rookie of the year programs for Stock Cars and Late Models and will award a nosepiece and headlight kit in each division. Deadline for submitting rookie of the year applications is Aug. 1.

Gift cards valued at $100, $50 and $50, respectively, go to the top three drivers in national Mach-1 Sport Compact point standings.

All awards will be presented during the national IMCA banquet in November mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.

“This Performance Bodies program is very similar to last year, with a slight adjustment by adding national rookie of the year awards for Stock Cars and Late Models,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder noted. “Their 35 years of support is remarkable and humbling, and a relationship we definitely don’t take for granted.”
