BEATRICE, Neb. – Drivers in IMCA’s Central Region for Modifieds compete under the Jet Racing banner again this season.
The Beatrice, Neb., chassis builder furnishes a portion of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in the region that includes tracks in Arkansas, eastern Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
The champion earns $2,500, with the runner-up getting $1,250 and $625 paid for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for each of sixth through 10th places.
Jet is owned by four-time IMCA Modified national champion Johnny Saathoff and begins its 23rd year of IMCA sponsorship. Previously a supporter of IMCA special events competitors and then Stock Car and Hobby Stock regions, Jet became a regional Modified title sponsor in 2012.
Jet also builds Northern SportMod, Stock Car, Hobby Stock and Sport Compact chassis and sells a wide range of high performance parts and automotive accessories. Information about those chassis and parts is available at the www.jetracinginc.com website, by calling 888 290-9696 and on Facebook.
Central Region drivers are required to display two Jet Racing decals on their race car to become eligible for point fund shares.
“Our Modified regional title sponsors haven’t changed in many years and the Jet brand has become synonymous with the Central Region and rightfully so,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder commented. “Johnny the Jet’s legacy through both his historical racing career and successful racing business is remarkable and something we’re proud to continue.”
