Jet Racing continues IMCA Central Region title sponsorship

BEATRICE, Neb. – Jet Racing begins its third decade as an IMCA sponsor in 2018, returning to an integral role with the sanctioning body’s Central Region for Modifieds.

As title sponsor of the region for the seventh consecutive season, the Beatrice, Neb., chassis builder provides a portion of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in the region encom­passing tracks in Arkansas, eastern Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Okla­homa.

The champion earns $2,500 and the runner-up $1,250, with $625 paid for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th places.

Drivers must display two Jet Racing decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.

Jet Racing is owned by four-time IMCA Modified national champion Johnny Saathoff, and also builds Northern SportMod, Stock Car and Hobby Stock chassis in addition to selling high perfor­mance parts and automotive accesso­ries.

Information about Jet chassis and parts is available at the website, by call­ing 888 290-9696 and on Facebook.

Jet had previously sponsored IMCA spe­cial events drivers and then Stock Car and Hobby Stock regions before taking over the Modified regional title sponsorship role in 2012. Jet Racing won Manufacturers’ Cup honors in the Central Region last season.

“As the defending regional Manufacturer of the Year in its home region, Jet will build on that success in 2018 with some new drivers flying a Jet Mod this year,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder predicted. “I look for Jet cars to contend for track, state, regional and even national championships this season.”
