IMCA Stocks, Hobbies are new at Millard County

DELTA, Utah – Millard County Raceway adds two more IMCA divisions to Friday and Saturday race programs in 2018.

Both the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks are new this season and join sanctioned Modifieds and SportMods on May 4-5, June 15-16, Aug. 3-4 and 24-25, and Sept. 21-22 cards.

“When I was named the new promoter here in January, I said I wanted to go IMCA across the board,” explained Russell Wolfe. “It’s one way we can get drivers from other states racing here for IMCA national and regional points.”

“IMCA’s rules are right there in black and white,” he continued. “If there’s a question about them, you’ve always got somebody you can call at any time to get an answer. IMCA’s rules make it so much easier for us.”

Modifieds and SportMods have run at Delta since 2012. The Modifieds are part of IMCA’s Larry Shaw Race Cars Western Region.

Stock Cars will be new to the EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region, Hobby Stocks to the Big Daddy Race Cars Southern Region.

Wolfe had family members who raced IMCA Modifieds in Oklahoma. The long-time announcer at Thunder Mountain Speedway did double-duty as pit steward and track announcer at Montezuma County Fairgrounds last year.

He’ll drive 350 miles one-way from his home in Delta, Colo., to promote the Delta, Utah race track.

“This track is only seven years old. It wasn’t that long ago that the racing surface was reshaped and the BMX track in the infield was moved to a different area of the fairgrounds,” Wolfe said. “I think it’s the nicest facility within 300 miles.”
