LEBANON, Ore. – Willamette Speedway makes history this season, becoming the first track in Oregon to sanction its Stock Car division with IMCA.
The Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods are also new this season at Lebanon, where they will join IMCA Modifieds as well as the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars on weekly race programs.
“We have street stock and sportsman classes now that already have rules similar to the IMCA Stock Cars and Northern SportMods,” said promoter Jerry Schram. “I like that IMCA’s rules are right there in black and white, and that our drivers will be able to race for point fund money and contingency awards from IMCA.”
The IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season begins April 14 and runs through Sept. 22 at Willamette, where 15 Stock Car and 13 Northern SportMod dates are on the schedule.
Willamette has sanctioned its Modified division with IMCA since 2013 and is part of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Western Region for that division. Stock Cars are part of the EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region.
