ARLINGTON, Minn. – The Saturday, Sept. 23 season championship night program at Arlington Raceway will be in honor of Scott Schoknecht.
Schoknecht, from Belle Plaine, was very instrumental in helping many drivers with his unselfish knowledge in setting up race cars.
Friends have collected donations from almost 40 individuals and businesses to add to the purse for the IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars. Both features will be $1,500 to win, $800 for second, $500 for third, $300 for fourth and $200 for fifth through 24th place. The Modified feature is a 2018 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier.
After the race, four numbers will be drawn for finishing positions 5-24 and each of those spots will receive a total of $1,000. There will also be a $500 hard charger award in these two classes.
Several businesses have also donated contingencies to this race.
Also in action will be IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
The pit gate opens at 2:00 p.m. and draw cutoff is 3:45 p.m. The grandstand opens at 2:30 p.m. In the event of rain, the event will be held Sunday, Sept. 24 at 4 p.m.
