FAIRMONT, Minn. – IMCA drivers Race For Trace next Tuesday, Aug. 18 at Fairmont Raceway.
The midweek show boasts a $25,000-plus purse but more importantly raises funds to help pay medical costs for car owner and sponsor Trace Iverson.
Three dollars from each admission ticket sold will be donated and the 15 drivers Iverson helps sponsor will pass their helmets in the grandstand and pit area. Items to be auctioned include donated door panels while the raffle includes a wheel autographed by Richard Petty.
Tuesday’s IMCA Modified feature pays $2,020 to win and is a 2021 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying event, while IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars run for $2,000 to win.
Chukuske Racing adds $20 to each starting position in the Modified main, matching that total amount with a donation to Iverson.
IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods both race for $1,000 to win, Mach-1 Sport Compacts for $200.
Bruce and Bobby Egeland at B & B Motorsports will give $100 to the ninth place finisher – 9 was Iverson’s car number – in each feature.
Grandstand admission is $15 for adults, $8 for kids ages 6-12 and free for five and under. Doors open at 5 p.m. and racing follows 6:30 p.m. hot laps.
Race For Trace will be broadcast by IMCA TV.
