  • 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

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.

  • 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.

  • IMCA clarifies 2024 carburetor, spring rules
    VINTON, Iowa (Jan. 25, 2024) – IMCA has announced clarifications to carburetor rules for three divisions, and to spring rules for five classes effective in 2024. Carburetor rule no. 17 for the Stock Cars, Northern SportMods and Southern SportMods now states that part number 0-4412 or 0-4412SA would be allowed in sanctioned competition this season. The 0-4412 is the same 500CFM carburetor we have allowed for years including the Dorton version. The 0-4412SA is the shiny aluminum version. “We had several questions from drivers about the way that rule was worded, with a comma instead of the word ‘or,’” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “Either version of that carburetor is legal. They will pass our gauges in tech inspection and are allowed in their unaltered form.” And the word non-tapered was added to spring rules for Modifieds, Stock Cars, both SportMod divisions and Hobby Stocks. Non-tapered springs means conical, beehive, barrel, pig tail, etc., springs are not legal. “We’d also received questions from racers about how we interpret that rule and that led us to believe we needed to add ‘non-tapered’ [Read More]
