Four Tuesday dates for five IMCA divisions slated at Jackson Motorplex

JACKSON, Minn. – Four Tuesday dates for five IMCA divisions are on the upcoming Jackson Motorplex schedule.

IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts take to the four-tenth’s mile dirt oval at Jackson on June 9, June 30, July 21 and Aug. 25.

The Dirt Knights Tour for IMCA Modifieds is in town for the July date. Ten shows for IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars are slated on Jackson’s regular Friday night programs.

“We wanted to have races for our fans to attend on the weeks we have off and Tuesdays were the best fit with race nights at other tracks in the area,” said promoter Doug Johnson, noting the 100-plus cars entered for the midweek fair show last season. “Bank Midwest will sponsor our Tuesday night programs this year.” 

Jackson will become just the second Minnesota venue to host a Dirt Knights race, in the tour’s 11th season.

“This is a very prestigious tour,” Johnson said. “It has had an excellent following and we are really looking forward to hosting the tour.”

IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, E3 Spark Plugs State and track points will be awarded in all divisions at Jackson. Modified points apply in the Side Biter Chassis North Central Region, Stock Car points in the EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region and Hobby Stock points in the Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region. 

Point season for the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars runs from May 15 to Aug. 21.

Sprints run for $700 to win during the Great Lakes Shootout on May 15 and for $1,000 to win on June 25, opening night of the Jackson Nationals.

Jackson sanctions the RaceSaver Sprints for a fifth consecutive season in 2020 and local sponsors Heartland Steel and Wyffel Hybrids again pay the track champion in that division $1,000.
