IMCA Sport Compacts make March debut at Canyon


PEORIA, Ariz. – A Facebook page has already been started for the class in Arizona, plenty of time before Mach-1 Sport Compacts make their debut at Canyon Speedway Park on March 3.

The four-cylinder class also runs there March 9, 10 and 24, April 13 and 14, May 26 and 27, and Sept. 29.

IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Allstar Performance State and track points will be awarded each night and Canyon promoter Doug Gabbard is confident the economy of the divi­sion will lead to a great race for those first-ever state and track championships.

“It’s a division young drivers can start their careers in. We really don’t have an entry level division so these cars will really fill a void,” he explained.

“We’re comfortable with IMCA’s philosophy. One of the things we like best is that they keep the rules the same from one year to the next. They’re very focused on cost,” Gabbard continued. “Once people see these cars, they’ll really take off.”

Canyon also sanctions the IMCA Modified, IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod divisions.
