15 chassis builders enter IMCA Manufacturer’s Cup contest

VINTON, Iowa – Fifteen chassis builders are in the running for national and regional honors in IMCA’s Manufacturer’s Cup contest. 

Standings will again be based on makes of chassis driven by top 10 drivers in each region. 2019 champions will be named based on points for individual regions while the builder with the highest point total overall will be named IMCA’s national Manufacturer of the Year.
