Three IMCA national rookies of the year earn Friesen Performance crate engines

SUTTON, Neb. – National rookies of the year in three IMCA divisions will receive crate engines from Friesen Performance to show for their on-track efforts again this season. 

The Sutton, Neb., dealership and sixth-year IMCA sponsor gives a 604 crate engine to the na­tional Modified rookie of the year. Both Hobby Stock and Northern SportMod rookies of the year get 602 crate engines. 

Engine awards will be presented during the IMCA national banquet in No­vember. Rookie drivers in all three divisions are required to display two Friesen Performance decals on their race car to be eligible.     

2018 crate engine recipients were Jeffrey Abbey, Modified; Adam Ayers, Hobby Stock; and Bran­don Setser, Northern SportMod. 

Friesen also gives a 602 crate to a non-qualifying Hobby Stock or Northern SportMod driver dur­ing the upcoming IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s at Boone Speed­way Sept. 2-7. 

Friesen sells and ships GM crate engines to IMCA customers across the country and is an author­ized crate engine repair facility for IMCA. 

In addition to selling and servicing new and pre-owned vehicles, Friesen has one of the largest parts departments in the nation, specializing in power train, discontinued parts and all Chevrolet Performance parts.
