Bilstein renews IMCA awards program for 19th season 

POWAY, Calif. – IMCA drivers in five divisions benefit from Bilstein Shocks sponsorship for a 19th consecutive season.

The Poway, Calif., manufacturer has renewed a contingency program that sees nearly $8,000 in product certificates awarded to IMCA Modified, IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod drivers.

“As Bilstein nears its second decade of supporting IMCA, we are more excited than ever with a full range of new shocks for nearly every class,” said Director of Motorsports-North America Scott MacDonald. “We are looking forward to continuing our championship tradition in 2017!”

Top eligible drivers in each Modified region earn $350 certificates. Runners-up get $250 for second with $200 for third. Certificates to the top three eligible drivers in the two Stock Car regions will be awarded in increments of $350, $250 and $150.

The top drivers three in both Hobby Stock regions and in national Northern Sport­Mod and Southern SportMod point standings receive product certificates valued at $300, $200 and $100, respectively.

In addition to competing with four Bilstein shocks, drivers in all five divi­sions must display two Bilstein decals on their race car and return a sign-up form to the IMCA home office by Aug. 1.

All Bilstein awards will be presented at the national banquet in November or mailed beginning the next week.

“Bilstein has long been a leader in shocks for IMCA racers and their unwavering support extends to a 19th consecutive season,” observed IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “We continue to see as many champions crowned with Bilstein shocks as anyone and that trend should bring the same results in 2017.”
