ARDMORE, Okla. (Jan. 26, 2023) – IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car drivers asked for more dates at Southern Oklahoma Speedway.
They’ll get four of them in 2023.
The winged division joins four Saturday night shows at Ardmore this season, on April 22, May 13, June 24 and July 8.
At stake at each of those shows will be IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National and Oklahoma State points. A track championship – but no bonus points – will be awarded if dry weather prevails each of those race nights.
“There are a lot of IMCA RaceSaver drivers who live down along this way and they’ve run here before at specials or at series events,” explained promoter Nicky Webb. “They’ve asked when they could run here again and we asked ourselves ‘Why not run them once a month and see what happens?’”
Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and Smiley’s Racing Products IMCA Southern SportMods already run regularly at Southern Oklahoma Speedway.
“Sprint Car drivers like the size of this track (a 3/8-mile clay oval) and that they can run three, four and five-wide,” Webb said. “They like knowing they can come here and the racing will be good.”
