Tradition, prestige and the pay all highlight 32nd annual IMCA Harris Clash at Deer Creek

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Aug. 4, 2023) – Being part of a tradition and the prestige bring Friesen Performance IMCA Modified and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods back to Deer Creek Speedway for the Tuesday, Aug. 8 Harris Clash.

The pay is pretty good, too.

IMCA’s longest running one-day special returns to Spring Valley, Minn., for its 32nd annual event, which sees the Modified winner earn $5,000-plus to win along with Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifying eligibility while the SportMod winner takes home at least $2,500.

“We have a good payout throughout the field again this year,” said event promoter Bob Harris, noting that nearly 100 drivers from 16 states are already entered for the upcoming Clash. “The Modified winner gets another $500 if their chassis builder is part of our manufacturers’ cup, plus $100 for every position they advance from their original starting spot from the TraLo Companies.”

The Modified main pays a minimum of $500 to start. Wehrs Machine and Racing Products gives a $500 random draw award on lap 15 and also returns as title sponsor of the $1,000 to win Race of Champions for the Mods.

Fast Shafts will give a $50 per position advanced bonus to the Northern SportMod winner.

This is the sixth consecutive year the Clash has been held at Deer Creek and more information is available from Harris at 515 292-9200.
