ABILENE, Texas – When they say everything is bigger in Texas, what they’re talking about now are IMCA Sunoco Stock Car paydays at Abilene Speedway’s Ice Breaker.
The winner of the Friday, Feb. 19 feature takes home a hefty $3,000 paycheck while the Saturday, Feb. 20 headliner, on the first night of the Sniper Speed Lone Star Tour, pays $1,000, with an additional $1,000 loyalty bonus added specifically for that event.
“Winning the Ice Breaker is a career highlight for any IMCA driver. This is traditionally our first sanctioned event of the season in Texas,” IMCA President Brett Root notes, “and with drivers coming from across the country to compete at Abilene, it is certainly worthy of bigger paydays.”
IMCA Modifieds race for $700 to win on opening night and for $1,000 to win, along with a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot berth, on Saturday.
Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMod features both nights pay $600 to win while Mach-1 Sport Compacts run for $200 top checks each night.
IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Razor Chassis South Central Modified and EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Stock Car regional and KMJ Performance Texas State points will be awarded.
Pit gates open at 4 p.m. and racing starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday. On Saturday, gates open at 3 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m. Questions about the Ice Breaker can be directed to promoter Rob Poor at 325 725-3849 or 325 692-8800.
