ABBOTT, Texas – Competitors in IMCA’s Sport Compact division will enjoy their association with Mach-1 Racing Solutions for another three seasons.
The Abbott, Texas company has renewed its title sponsorship agreement for the 4-cylinder class and will provide a portion of $1,000 point funds to be paid to top 10 drivers in the division in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
“We are excited to continue the support of a growing class that supports the vision of IMCA as well as economic racing,” said owner Gary Mach.
The latest agreement takes Mach-1 through an 11th consecutive season as the divisional sponsor. Mach-1 began giving Sport Compact contingencies in 2009 and became the division’s first title sponsor in 2011.
All drivers in the division are required to display two Mach-1 decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares. That decal will be included in the packet they receive after purchasing their 2019 competitor’s license.
Forty-three track and 11 state Sport Compact champions were crowned in 2018. Ramsey Meyer of Pierce, Neb., raced to his career second national championship while Howard Watson of Weatherford, Texas, earned national rookie of the year honors.
“The support Mach-1 shows our Sport Compact division remains resilient and we are thrilled to announce their extension for the next three seasons,” commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder.
