Moffitt returning to Harris Clash for 30th annual IMCA special

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. – Brett Moffitt will add to his IMCA heritage at the upcoming Harris Clash. 

The 2007 Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod Clash winner, Moffitt will wheel an IMCA Modified at the 30th annual event on Aug. 3 at Deer Creek Speedway. 

“I’m pretty excited about it. I’ve worked with him since he was about 13 years old,” Clash promoter Bob Harris said of Moffitt, the youngest driver to win at Knoxville Raceway, the 2015 rookie of the year in the NASCAR Cup Series and 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion. “It’s pretty cool and a benefit for the Clash.” 

Moffitt will pilot a Jason Snyder-owned car. His first night in that ride is at Benton County Speedway’s Aug. 1 Racing For Autism show. 

The NASCAR Xfinity Series driver will then be among the IMCA Modified competitors chasing a Clash record $5,000 payday at Spring Valley as well as the $1,000 to be paid to the Wehrs Machine and Racing Products Race of Champions winner. 

Wehrs has added $3,500 to the Modified purse while TraLo gives a $100 bonus to the Modified winner for each position they advance. 

In addition to an extra $1,000 to the Northern SportMod purse and $50 bonus to the SportMod winner for each position advanced, Fast Shafts gives $250 to Modified and Northern SportMod drivers turning in the fastest lap of the night.

“Both features pay pretty well,” notes Harris. “If a driver has a great night, they can come out of there with a pretty good chunk of change.” 

The Clash, IMCA’s longest continuously running one-day special, is a Fast Shafts All-Star qualifier and the Modified winner earns an additional $500 if their chassis builder participates in the Harris Clash manufacturers’ cup. 

Drivers in both Modified and Northern SportMod divisions can register now through MyRacePass. Entry fee is $75 for Modifieds and $50 for Northern SportMods if paid by July 31 or $100 for Modifieds and $75 for Northern SportMods after that date.

Pit gates will be open all day and officially open at 3 p.m. The draw closes and hot laps start at 6:15 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m. Transponders are required and will be available to rent at the track.
