IMCA announces final 2022 rule amendments

VINTON, Iowa – IMCA has announced final amendments to 2022 rules for three divisions. 

Those amendments, explained IMCA President Brett Root, result from supply and demand, as well as shipping, manufacturing and component issues specific to rules for those divisions. 

“We are not in the habit of amending our rules after the season has started,” Root said. “But most tracks are still six to eight weeks away from their opening nights. We need to address these issues and give everyone fair notice because they will impact the building of cars in these divisions.” 

All amendments are effective immediately and will be in effect throughout 2022.

The wording no gas ported pistons has been removed from Hobby Stock, Stock Car and Northern SportMod divisional rules. 

For Hobby Stocks, the maximum extended length of shocks will be 21 inches. 

For Stock Cars, front fenders do not have to match the body. If fabricated, they must meet the definition of OEM replacement for that make and model (steel only). Additionally, IMCA approved OEM direct replacement Camaro and Chrysler 300-type fenders (steel only) will be permitted as acceptable components.
