Sunoco marks 31st season of IMCA sponsorship

LINWOOD, Pa. (Jan. 10, 2023) – Three IMCA divisions run under the Sunoco Race Fuels banner again in 2023. 

Linwood, Pa.-based Sunoco, manufacturer of The Official Fuel of IMCA, returns as title sponsor of the Late Model, Stock Car and Hobby Stock divisions and provides a portion of point funds to be paid in each. 

Drivers in all three divisions must compete with Sunoco race gas and display two Sunoco logos on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares, to be distributed during the national awards banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office. 

“At 31 years, Sunoco Race Fuels is our third-longest tenured sponsor,” observed IMCA Marketing Integration and Sponsorship Director Carson Becker-Gramm. “Their support has been invaluable in the growth of IMCA, not only in terms of the number of licensed competitors but in the number of sanctions in new states and different regions around the country.” 

“This season is also the 25th for Sunoco as title sponsor of the IMCA Stock Car division,” noted Becker-Gramm. “Nearly all of the drivers in The Class Too Tough To Tame have directly benefitted from that sponsorship for their entire career in the division.”

Sunoco awards $250 bonuses to the highest eligible finisher on a designated race night at each track that sanctions Late Models weekly and returns to another high-profile title sponsorship role while paying out the $2,000 purse for the 23rd annual Stock Car Race of Champions during the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s this September at Boone Speedway. 

2023 track and special series champions or point lead­ers in attendance, and former national champions, Super Na­tionals champions and race of champions win­ners are eligible to qualify for the race of champions. The dozen drivers who start that race all receive fuel jugs from Sunoco.
