CONCORDIA, Kan. – Five IMCA divisions will be new to weekly race programs this season at “a fun little track” in Kansas.
Concordia High Banks has 13 point nights, all but two of them on Sundays, scheduled this season. IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts will look to tame the quick quarter-mile clay oval.
“This is a fun little track,” said Terry Eidet, who got into the promotional business to help the sport survive and thrive in the Jayhawk State. “Last year we had 133 different drivers from seven states race here. They all enjoyed it.”
Opening night is set for Saturday, June 20, with a midweek date on Thursday, July 2. Eidet expects the 11 Sunday shows slated through the final night of the IMCA point season on Sept. 27 to bring point chasers to town.
“We have a lot of drivers here that run IMCA and we went by IMCA rules last year,” he said. “Sundays should be good days to get more drivers racing for points. We’ve gotten a very positive response for our decision to sanction with IMCA.”
The pit area at Concordia has already been expanded. Installation of new lighting in the infield and work on the racing surface will continue as weather permits.
Concordia High Banks is in IMCA’s Jet Racing Central Region for Modifieds, EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region for Stock Cars and Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region for Hobby Stocks.
