Hammond Motorsports has new awards for IMCA Modified, Northern SportMod specials

DeWITT, Iowa – A company that will ship to all 50 states and eight foreign countries looks to build its customer base even more with a new IMCA awards program.

Hammond Motorsports of DeWitt, Iowa, gives $75 product certificates, good toward the purchase of a set of chassis set-up plates, to top five finishers at each of 45 IMCA Modified and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod special events.

The custom chassis parts and shock manufacturer is owned by veteran Modified driver Dave Hammond, who relocated the business from North Carolina to his home state in 2009.

“I’ve been involved with the IMCA Modified division since 1983 when I started building chassis,” said the second-generation driver. “IMCA is the largest sanctioning body and our new program with them is one way I’m looking to build my customer numbers in IMCA. We’ve wanted to step in and get our feet wet with IMCA.”

Hammond started the business in the mid-1980s. More than a few fans followed his IMCA Modified Firecracker Tour exploits in 2004 and he was a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational candidate the next year.

“When I design a product, I test it personally. I put it in my own car before I put it in anybody else’s,” he said. “We do a tremendous amount of business now in the Western United States and Canada. I want to work more with chassis manufacturers and expand more into the IMCA market.”

A portable pull-down rig Hammond designed will be new to the HMS product line. That will be on display at PRI in December.

Hammond product certificates are mailed within a week after race results are received at the IMCA home office.

“Dave Hammond is an innovator and has great new products for IMCA racers,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “We’re excited about this new program and are confident we’ll build a relationship for years to come. “
