ANKENY, Iowa – Two companies that have become synonymous with IMCA return to sponsorship roles with the sanctioning body in 2017.
Karl Chevrolet and Karl Performance have a combined 31 years of cash and product support for IMCA drivers.
Karl Chevrolet, the new and pre-owned automotive dealership located in Ankeny, returns as title sponsor for the Northern SportMod division for the 12th consecutive season and again furnishes a portion of the $9,500 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in final national standings.
Nineteen-year sponsor Karl Performance, the Des Moines-based engine builder, Billy Moyer Victory Race Cars manufacturer and high performance parts retailer, continues sponsorship of the IMCA heat winner decal program.
All Northern SportMod, Southern SportMod, Hobby Stock and now Sport Compact drivers are required to display two Karl Chevrolet decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund checks, which will be presented during the national awards banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.
Karl Performance decals go to heat winners in all IMCA divisions at all sanctioned events. Drivers who win at least 10 heat races this season and provide a photo of their car proving heat winner decal placement to IMCA receive a $50 product certificate.
Modified, Northern SportMod or Hobby Stock champions who win IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s titles with crate motors receive a new GM 604 or 602 crate from Karl Chevrolet. Drivers in any division winning with claim motors get engines from Karl Performance.
“Each season the renewal of the Karl programs are paramount to not only our regular point season but Super Nationals as well,” observed IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “The relationship we have with everyone at both Karl Chevrolet and Karl Performance is something we value highly, and the support they annually show IMCA is really incredible.”
