IMCA Arizona Modified Tour Schedule Released


SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. – The fourth annual tour for IMCA divisions has released the February schedule, with significant changes from prior years.

The 2020 series will see the return of IMCA stock cars to the tour, joining IMCA modifieds and IMCA Northern sport mods for each race.

The tour starts at Arizona Speedway on Thursday, Feb. 6 with a practice night with a pair of three division shows the following two nights.

The next stop on the tour is Central Arizona Speedway at the fairgrounds east of Casa Grande, for races on Sunday, Feb. 9 and again on Tuesday, Feb. 11.  Feb. 10 will be an off day, as will Feb. 12 following the CAS races.

The tour then moves further south to USA Raceway in Tucson for a Thursday, Feb. 13 practice night, followed by race nights on Feb. 14-15. Feb. 16 is a possible rain date.

Last year the IMCA modified champion was Ricky Thornton Jr. The Adel, Iowa driver formerly lived in Chandler, Ariz., and had a dominant series, winning four times and finishing in the top five in all seven races.

The IMCA Northern Sport Mod title ended in a tie between Jake McBirnie and Brady Bjella.  McBirnie was named the champion, as his three wins decided the title.
