Transponders required for Duel In The Desert 


LAS VEGAS, Nev. – IMCA Modified and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod drivers are being re­minded of a very important piece of equipment they’ll have to have to compete at next week’s Duel In The Desert at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The MyLaps/AMB transponder system is required for all cars in both divisions. Drivers who don’t have one of their own can rent one for $40.

“The sheer number of cars and close finishes throughout heat, qualifying features and the main event necessitate transponders,” IMCA President Brett Root explained. “Drivers and fans will also be able to purchase a race monitor app to get live scoring throughout the event on their smart phones.”

IMCATV will broadcast every lap of the 20th annual special, which plays out Nov. 8-11 at the half-mile Dirt Track at LVMS.

The Saturday Modified main event is a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier and pays $7,777 to win and a minimum of $777 to start. The Northern SportMod main event pays $1,777 to win.

Thursday and Friday qualifying features for Modifieds pay $777 to win. Northern SportMod qualify­ing features those nights pay $500 to win.

Tech starts at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, at 8 a.m. on Thursday and at noon on Friday and Saturday. Racing starts at 4 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

There’s a throwback theme to the best appear­ing car contest, open to drivers in both divisions.
