PLUMERVILLE, Ark. – Friday night race programs at Central Arkansas Motor Speedway will feature three IMCA divisions beginning this season.
IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA STARS Mod Lites join weekly shows on the quarter-mile clay oval at Plumerville beginning March 25. Season championship night is set for Sept. 23.
“We have been running IMCA rules and getting a good number of cars,” said promoter Wes Wise. “The IMCA rules are very popular in our area because they allow drivers to travel and not have to make changes to their cars to be legal to race at other tracks.”
“We’ve been working with other tracks to help promote racing in general,” Wise continued. “We’re only two and a half to three hours from the state lines and are just off the interstate so we’ll be able to give more drivers the opportunity to race for points on Friday nights.”
Modified points earned at Central Arkansas Motor Speedway will figure toward Jet Racing Central Region standings, Stock Car points toward EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region standings.
Spectator seating and parking on both sides of the track will be expanded before opening night for Wise’s second full season at the promotional helm. The schedule is to be finalized and special events announced this month.
“We have had a very positive response from our drivers about the IMCA sanction. They had been asking us to do this,” said Wise, also owner of GRT Race Cars, new title sponsor in 2022 of IMCA’s South Central Region for Modifieds. “I think the IMCA sanction is going to be a game changer. It’s going to help build our car counts.”
“Drivers and fans at Plumerville have a lot to look forward to with this announcement,” said IMCA Vice President of Operations Jim Stannard. “Central Arkansas is another perfect Friday night addition to weekly racing in the area.”
