Velocita extends IMCA awards program through 2023

LEXINGTON, N.C. – IMCA’s top drivers are in line for custom fire suits courtesy of Velocita each of the next three seasons. 

The premium motorsports apparel manufacturer and 10-year IMCA sponsor has signed on to award a com­bination of fire suits and product certificates through 2023. 

“We are truly honored to be a part of the nation’s premier dirt sanctioning body.  Our relationship with IMCA has afforded us the opportunity to work with thousands of racers coast to coast through the sanction,” said Velocita President Brad Smith. “We are excited to be on board another three years and look forward to a bright and progressive future with IMCA.”
