Winnemucca fans will have local IMCA Stock Car favorites to cheer for

WINNEMUCCA, Nev. – Fans at Winnemucca Regional Raceway will have local drivers to cheer for when IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars take the green flag during regular programs this season. 

Sanctioned Stock Cars join IMCA Modifieds on 11 Friday, Saturday and Sunday night cards at the Nevada oval. 

Opening night for the IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season is April 10 with the final event of 2020 set for Sept. 27. 

“Our fans liked having the Stock Cars and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods here along with the Modifieds for the Wild West Tour show last year,” promoter Cory Sample said. “It will be exciting for them to have local drivers to cheer for this year.”

New Mexico’s Steffan Carey was the Stock Car winner when the Wild West Tour came to town in July. Winnemucca is the second Nevada track to sanction the division for the upcoming season, close on the heels of Battle Mountain Raceway.

“We’ve worked very closely with Battle Mountain so our schedules don’t conflict. We will do every­thing we can to help this division grow,” said Sample. “The racing is close and very competi­tive.” 

Both Modifieds and Stock Cars are on May 30 and 31 High Desert Classic Shootout shows. The Wild West Tour returns July 17 and 18. 

Winnemucca is in IMCA’s EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region for Stock Cars. The track has sanctioned its Modified division with IMCA since 2003.
