New promoter wants to deliver first-rate racing at Hancock County

BRITT, Iowa (Feb. 22, 2024) – Back when Hancock County Speedway was being built, Darin Toot used to take breaks from his job delivering milk and eat his lunch at the track so he could follow the work in progress. Beginning this season, he’ll focus his energies on delivering first-rate race programs at Britt. Toot takes over as new promoter of the 4/10-mile dirt oval, where Friday night shows will feature Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods. “Racing has been in my life since I bought my first car in 1989. It’s what I do, It’s what I enjoy, it’s what’s in my heart,” said Toot, who raced IMCA Modifieds and IMCA Stock Cars along with a nine-year stint as owner and promoter of Chateau Speedway in Minnesota. “We want Hancock County to be a place where racers want to race, and where fans can come to watch good racing.” “Our goals are to get numbers up in the grandstand and pit side,” [Read More]

IMCA Late Model sanction is first for Park Jefferson, South Dakota

JEFFERSON, S.D. (Feb. 21, 2024) – Park Jefferson Speedway will crown its first-ever IMCA Sunoco Late Model track champion this season. Sanctioned Late Models join five other IMCA divisions at PJ and run on six select nights in 2024. The class will also crown its first state champion in South Dakota. “We wanted to add a division that was maybe a little different than anything that was running around here,” explained promoter Wayne Becker. “I have a soft spot in my heart for the Late Models. They ran here back in the day and were very entertaining.” “We’re trying to bring a little bit of the 1990s back, and all the feedback we’ve received so far has been positive.” IMCA Late Models made their last and what was believed only previous appearance at Park Jefferson as part of the Summer Series in June of 2007. They’re on the schedule for April 25, May 16, May 23, June 6, Aug. 15 and Aug. 29, all nights the division is not running at US 30 Speedway in [Read More]

Former track champion Peery primed to promote Yreka Speedway

YREKA, Calif. (Feb. 16, 2024) – The last laps Travis Peery turned at Yreka Speedway took him to a track championship. The laps he’ll turn this year will be getting the big quarter-mile clay oval ready for Saturday night race programs featuring Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds and Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods. “The track was closed and did not open in 2023 and that was tough. I can see the lights from my shop,” said Peery, Modified champion at Yreka in 2020. “A lot of people in the community missed having racing here. I’m a race guy and I wanted to bring it back.” Located on the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds and just 22 miles from the Oregon state line, Yreka will host seven dates for Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds and 13 for Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods. Specials on the calendar are the $5,000 to win Rich and Nicky Biehn Memorial for Modifieds on June 14, which also features SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars; the Wild West Speedweek date June 15 for Modifieds, SportMods [Read More]

Douglas County fills a Friday niche for IMCA in Oregon

ROSEBURG, Ore. (Feb. 12, 2024) – Drivers in the Pacific Northwest will chase IMCA points at a newly sanctioned Friday night venue. Douglas County Dirtrack hosts seven dates for Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, nine for the Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods and eight Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compact shows this season. First points races will be April 12 with the final night on Sept. 2. IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars also have a date at Roseburg during Wild West Speedweek on June 18. “We wanted the sanction since day one and running on Fridays gives drivers the opportunity to race two nights a week for IMCA national, regional and state points,” explained Brian Crockett, who heads into his second season as promoter of the 3/10-mile dirt oval and as part of the four-member Roseburg Race Promotions board. “Tracks to the north and south of us are already sanctioned on Saturdays,” he said, “and there are so many things IMCA does, like rules and procedures, that we don’t have to.

IMCA back at Bloomfield with race dates for five divisions

BLOOMFIELD, Iowa (Feb. 8, 2024) – As a driver, Mike Van Genderen liked just about everything about the 3/8-mile dirt oval at Bloomfield Speedway. He’s confident that IMCA drivers in five divisions will share that opinion when they race at the Davis County Fairgrounds venue this season. Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks all return to Bloomfield after a hiatus of two decades, while Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods and Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compacts make their first appearances there. Southern Iowa Frost Out shows March 29 and 30 and Bloomfield Fall Special shows Sept. 20 and 21 bookend April 18, May 9 and 30, and July 20 and 30 races. Each event this season at Bloomfield will be draw/redraw so no track champions will be crowned. “This track is very racy. It’s flat and just has the perfect shape. This is a great little facility,” Van Genderen said. “We like IMCA’s rules package. This is a great place for drivers to run for national, regional and state points [Read More]
