IMCA Stock Cars have four Saturday dates at Merced

MERCED, Calif. – Four Saturday dates for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars are on the 2020 schedule at Merced Speedway. 

The full-bodied class runs May 9, June 27 and Aug. 1 and 22 at the quarter-mile clay California venue.

“We have had a number of drivers ask about adding Stock Cars here. If they support us, we’ll add more dates next season,” promoter Doug Lockwood said. “We really like IMCA. Their rules make everybody’s job easier and guys who have been racing at other tracks in California can come to Merced and know their cars will be legal when they get here.” 

Merced will be part of IMCA’s EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region. Stock Cars points earned there also figure toward IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National and E3 Spark Plugs California State standings.

The IMCA Modifieds and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods return to regular weekly programs at Merced.

Both divisions headline the June 10 fair special, the June 20 Ed Parker Memorial and the pre-holiday special on July 3, which features free grandstand admission and post-race fireworks display.

Western RaceSaver Sprint Cars also visit Merced for five events this season.
