CRESWELL, Ore. – Sitting in staging at Cottage Grove Speedway, Paul Culp knew he had to have a picture taken of the cars lined up ahead of him.
All three had fuel cells manufactured by his Creswell, Ore., company, a new sponsor for both IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Late Models.
Superior Fuel Cells will give 22-gallon fuel cells to national rookies of the year in both divisions, as well as $100 product certificates to sixth through 10th place drivers in each of the five Modified regions.
“We are a family business. Our fuel cells are built by racers for racers,” said Culp, who grew up at a drag strip, got hooked on circle track racing in his first visit to Eugene Speedway and returned recently to the dirt late model ranks. “I designed them and tested them myself.”
“IMCA’s base principle is all about the Saturday night racer and helping keep the sport affordable,” he added. “We share that principle. We manufacture a high quality product that is going to last.”
Cottage Grove is Culp’s home track and a weekly home to IMCA Modifieds and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods.
Rookie of the year and regional awards will be presented during the national banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.
Superior also gives a 22-gallon fuel cell to the top Modified non-qualifier at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
“When we sell a fuel cell, it’s complete from the get-go. Everything is included. There aren’t any add-on’s. We do our best to give a great product at a great price,” Culp said. “We are a natural fit with IMCA. They do their best to provide a great product for drivers and fans.”

“It is great to work with a company whose vision is in alignment with IMCA’s, and Superior Fuel Cells is one of those companies. Paul races and knows what he wants in a quality fuel cell, and he brings that expertise to his products,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “It is great to bring their support of IMCA racing from the Pacific Northwest to each Modified region across the country, as well as to Boone Speedway and Super Nationals in September.”
