DENISON, Iowa (May 16, 2023) – IMCA Late Model drivers have two shots at winning a Sunoco Race Fuels bonus this weekend.
The divisional title sponsor awards $250 bonuses to feature winners on Friday, May 19 at Crawford County Speedway in Denison and Saturday, May 20 at Shelby County Speedway in Harlan.
Drivers can get the bonus one time in a season; the $250 will be awarded to the top finishing non-winning driver any night the winner has previously received the bonus.
Late Models will be first on the track for their heats and main event Friday night, joining IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts on the Friday card.
Pit gates open at 5 p.m. and the grandstand opens at 5:30 p.m. Drivers must draw, or have someone draw for them, before the drivers’ meeting starts at 6:45 p.m. Hot laps are at 7 p.m. with racing to follow; pit passes are $30. That night’s program will be broadcast by IMCA.TV.
At Harlan, the gates open at 4:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and racing to follow. Pit passes are $30 for adults and $15 for students ages 4-14.
