GREENBRIER, Ark. – GRT Race Cars returns the support in 2022 as new title sponsor of IMCA’s South Central Region for Modifieds.
Now the four consecutive time Manufacturer’s Cup winner in the region, GRT will provide a portion of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in point standings for drivers competing at tracks in Texas, southern Oklahoma and southern New Mexico.
“Approximately 70 to 75 percent of the cars we build are IMCA Modifieds, Stock Cars and SportMods,” said GRT owner Wes Wise. “We want to support the drivers who support us.”
Wise has worn many other hats during his career in motorsports, from driver and car owner to promoter at Central Arkansas Motor Speedway. He purchased the Greenbrier, Ark., chassis builder early this year, taking ownership on Feb. 1.
“I’ve always been around GRT. It was local to us and things worked out where I had the opportunity to buy it,” explained Wise, also the owner of an excavation business. “It’s definitely a change of pace with a different atmosphere. We have made a number of changes and are continuing to move forward, building the best race cars and providing the customer service that come with them.”
Winning the GRT Race Cars South Central Region championship will pay $2,500.
Second place is good for $1,250, $625 for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th places.
Drivers in the region must display two GRT logos on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.
Information about GRT-built chassis is available by calling 501 679-2311 and on Facebook.
“GRT has been a long-time supporter of IMCA racing through our Manufacturer’s Cup program and when this opportunity became available, the partnership seemed like a perfect fit,” commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “We’re excited to welcome GRT on board as an official sponsor and look forward to a long relationship with the Modified South Central Region.”
