EDNA, Texas (Feb. 26) – Interest generated by a Modified race held at Edna last fall led to the IMCA division being sanctioned there this season.
IMCA Modifieds join Saturday programs at Texana Raceway Park beginning with opening night on March 30. Another 13 events are scheduled at the 5/16-mile clay oval through season championship night on Sept. 28.
“There was a lot of interest. We polled the drivers and it was unanimous that they wanted to go with IMCA,” said promoter Rachel Densman, who purchased the track two years ago with her husband Kenny, a former Modified driver. “IMCA is a well-known organization. We like the rules and we like that our drivers will be eligible for point funds.”
Located approximately 100 miles southwest of Houston, Texana Raceway Park will field a strong group of local Modified drivers while getting cars from the San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Houston areas.
Texana, which was sanctioned in 2005 and 2006, will be part of IMCA’s Razor Chassis South Central Region for Modifieds and will also host a number of IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car events.
Specials on the 2019 schedule are the Aug. 30-31 Jim Scribellito Memorial, held in honor of the former Shady Oaks Speedway promoter, and the Oct. 25-26 Aaron Hudgeons Memorial.
“This is another great addition to our South Central Region,” noted IMCA Vice President of Operations Jim Stannard, “and a great track for RaceSaver Sprint Car events as well.”
