NORFOLK, Neb. – IMCA Late Models will have another regular weekly home in the Cornhusker State.
The newly sanctioned division joins four other IMCA classes on Saturday programs at Off Road Speedway.
“We’ve been looking for an organization with solid motor and tire rules,” said promoter Jerry Pospisil, who met with IMCA President Brett Root and Vice President of Operations Jim Stannard before announcing his decision to sanction. “IMCA has a complete set of rules that are pretty well cut and dried.”
The 1/3-mile dirt oval in Norfolk had been part of a Late Model series with other tracks in eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa.
While Norfolk drivers fared well in that tour, Pospisil pointed out that they’ll now have the opportunity to race close to home, earning point fund shares while competing in national, state and local track levels.
“There’s already a very strong field of Late Model drivers at Off Road Speedway,” noted Stannard, “and I expect those numbers to grow with the new sanctions at Norfolk as well as Boone County Raceway, Junction Motor Speedway and U.S. 30 Speedway.”
IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts have raced at Off Road since the track opened in 2015.
Stock Cars are part of IMCA’s EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region and Hobby Stocks are in the Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region.
The upcoming IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season starts April 13. Championship night will be Aug. 31.
