BEATRICE, Neb. – Jet Racing reaches one IMCA landmark and takes another step toward an even more impressive sponsorship milestone this season.
For a 10th consecutive season, the Beatrice, Neb., chassis manufacturer furnishes a portion of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in the Modified region that includes tracks in Arkansas, eastern Colorado, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.
The champion pockets $2,500, with the runner-up getting $1,250 and $625 paid for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for each of sixth through 10th places. Central Region drivers are required to display two Jet Racing logos on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.

Jet became title sponsor for the Modified Central Region in 2012.
