IMCA boosts RaceSaver Sprint point fund to $18,150

VINTON, Iowa – Bigger numbers on the track at IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car events will translate into bigger numbers on point fund checks mailed at the end of the season. 

IMCA will boost the point fund for the winged division $18,150 beginning in 2020. That amount includes $5,000 for the national champion with $300 paid to the 20th place driver. 

“We are investing in the RaceSaver Sprint Car division,” noted IMCA President Brett Root, “and want the national top 20 point fund to reflect both the membership support and the number of sanc­tions involved.” 

“IMCA has a long history with Sprint Cars,” he continued. “We’ve seen a huge resurgence in member­ship and sanction numbers during our seven-year association with RaceSaver. Both the growth we have already seen in the division and its potential more than justify the increased point fund.” 

IMCA RaceSaver sanctioned Sprint Car events in 17 states in 2019 and drivers from six of those states finished in the national top 20 standings.

“New sanctions and solid car counts gave RaceSaver Sprint Car drivers new opportunities to race more often and to compete in even bigger feature fields,” Root said. “That’s a trend I see continuing in the future.” 

The 2020 national champion receives a helmet, ring and jacket during the IMCA awards banquet in November. 

More information about the increased point fund, as well as the divisional contingency awards program, is to be announced.
