Rich IMCA Harris Clash returns to Deer Creek Speedway

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (July 15, 2022) – How can you improve on an already great event like the Harris Clash? 

Promoter Bob Harris says more money is a good way to start. 

While Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds run for $5,000 to win their main event on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at Deer Creek Speedway, the minimum paid to start the feature has been upped to $500. 

Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods see a boost as well and run for $2,500 to win.

“The Modified winner gets another $500 if their chassis builder is part of the Clash manufacturers’ cup, plus a new $100 bonus for every position they advance in the main event from the TraLo Companies out of Owatonna,” explained Harris. “We’ve added a lot of money to the back side of the Modified purse and the Northern SportMods are running for $2,500 to win so we’ve got a real good payout again this year.”

The Modified winner becomes eligible to qualify for the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. Wehrs Machine & Racing Products returns as title sponsor of the $1,000 to win Modified race of champions.

“Registration is already going very well,” Harris commented. “We can’t wait for another great night of racing at Deer Creek.”

This is the fifth year the Clash, at 31 years IMCA’s longest running one-day special, will be held at Spring Valley.
