Schoknecht Shootout set this Saturday at Arlington

ARLINGTON, Minn. – B&B Racing Chassis will be host to the $5,000 to win Schoknecht Shootout for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars at Arlington Raceway on Saturday, Sept. 28.  The third annual event is sponsored by Robinson Trucking and Robinson Repair and held in memory of Scott Schoknecht, a friend of many in the racing community. Several area businesses have contributed to the payoff for this special event on the final night of the IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season. At stake in the IMCA Modified feature is a check for $1,000 to win and a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot berth with the runner-up receiving $1,500. In true Schokecht fashion, he would often say “We go to the races to win first places” and the Modified driver who does so will earn the spot on the All-Star ballot. The IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Series of Minnesota will be in action, as will IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts. The pit gate opens at 1 p.m. and the grandstand opens [Read More]
