IMCA rewarding loyalty with bonuses for Lone Star Tour Stock Car feature winners
ABILENE, Texas – Stock Car drivers will see the loyalty they’ve shown IMCA and its sanctioned tracks rewarded during the Feb. 20-27 Sniper Speed Lone Star Tour.
IMCA adds a $500 loyalty bonus to the winner’s share in each of the six events in the fourth annual tour, providing that driver did not compete in any Stock Car event held in the State of Texas prior to opening night of the Ice Breaker Challenge at Abilene Speedway on Feb. 19.
That makes winning a tour event pay $1,500. A second bonus comes with eligible feature winners being added to the list of qualifiers for the inaugural Stock Car All-Star Invitational at the upcoming IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s.
“The Ice Breaker has been our traditional season-opening event in Texas for 20-plus years,” noted IMCA President Brett Root. “It’s what IMCA racers in the South Central Region have become accustomed to and what IMCA will support.”
