MLA starts 2023 season with new home

PLUMERVILLE, Ark. (March 27) – 2023 for the Mod Lites of Arkansas will start new faces, new places, and a new home track.

With the closure of I-30 Speedway, Central Arkansas Motor Speedway in Plumerville becomes the official home for the IMCA series for the 2023 season.

“We’re very excited for 2023. We have some new racers, new cars, new sponsors, new tracks to visit for the first time in addition to our long time favorites. But most importantly, we’re happy to call CAMS home for the MLA in 2023,” said President and Promoter Bryce Vowan.

By switching to Saturday nights in order to give central Arkansas racers and fans a close to home option, CAMS is expecting a great field of Stealth Racing IMCA STARS Mod Lites in addition to Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.

Central Arkansas Motor Speedway has several special paying events for each class including the Johnny Wise Memorial that pays tribute to the late track owner and the Leon Cloninger Memorial as the season finale.

President of GRT Race Cars and track owner Wesley Wise will be at the helm for the second season after succeeding his late father Johnny. 

“I thinks it’s an added benefit racing under the direction of another racer (Wesley). I’ve often said that a racer really understands racers, The challenges in running a race car and getting to the track each night,” said Vowan. Wesley is not only active as a racer but as someone in racing technology. I think the STARS Mod Lites are in a great place to succeed and grow.”
