ORONOGO, Mo. – A chassis builder that has helped drivers win championships since the early days of the Modified division continues in a coveted sponsorship role in 2017.
Dirt Works Race Cars returns for a fifth season as title sponsor of IMCA’s Eastern Region and will provide a portion of the $6,000 to be paid to top 10 drivers in final point standings for the region that includes sanctioned tracks and events in Alabama, Florida, Michigan and New York.
The regional championship pays $2,500. The runner-up earns $1,250, with $625 for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th place. Drivers must display two Dirt Works Race Cars decals on their race cars to be eligible for point fund shares.
“IMCA’s affiliation with Dirt Works dates all the way back to 1996 when Allen Essenburg of Copperas Cove, Texas, won the Dirt Works South Central Region,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “It was the first region we had with a title sponsor and soon Dirt Works became synonymous with not only that region, but many others. Today we’re proud to carry on that legacy with their Eastern Region title sponsorship and look forward to a great season.”
Dirt Works, located in Oronogo, Mo., is owned by veteran driver Jerry Hoffman and is a sister company to Hoffman Race Cars.
