IMCA Modifieds are new in 2021 at Washington’s Grays Harbor Raceway

ELMA, Wash.– Grays Harbor Raceway becomes the newest home for IMCA Modifieds in the Pacific Northwest. Bert Johnson, general manager at the 3/8-mile clay oval at the Fairgrounds in Elma, Wash., announced that opening night for the sanctioned division would be April 17, with the 2021 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing point season running through Sept. 18. “We probably have the largest number of Modifieds of any track in the Pacific Northwest now,” said Johnson. “The response we got about sanctioning with IMCA during our drivers’ meeting was very positive. We like the uniform rule package and when our guys go to other tracks to race, they know they’ll be legal when they get there.” “Another thing sanctioning with IMCA does is give our drivers the opportunity to race for national, regional and state championships,” he added. “It gives them a little push while representing our track.” Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifying specials on the tentative schedule are the $1,200 to win West Coast Modified Clash on June 26 and the $2,500-plus to win Shipwreck Beads Modified Nationals [Read More]
