EAGLE, Neb. — Fans who have enjoyed watching IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars run as part of the season-opening Ice Breaker Challenge special at Eagle Raceway will get to see The Class Too Tough To Tame every week this season.
“This is a class we’re adding while looking to the future,” said promoter Roger Hadan. “There are a number of drivers in the area I know who are building stock cars now to race on Saturdays with us.”
Stock cars run on opening night of the Ice Breaker Challenge on April 16 and see their first IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing action on April 24. The division is on every Saturday card through season championship night on Aug. 21 with the final action of the season at Eagle during the RaceSaver Nationals Weekend Sept. 5.
“We’ve gotten a lot of positive response from a lot of different people since announcing the sanction,” noted Hadan. “It’s going to be a very good addition to our weekly IMCA program.”
The flagship track for IMCA RaceSaver sprint cars, Eagle has sanctioned its modifieds with IMCA since 1985, the Hobby Stocks since 2006 and Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods since 2010. Weekly car counts in each of those divisions average among the highest in the nation.
Stock Car points earned at Eagle will apply in IMCA’s EQ Cylinder Heads Northern Region and toward KMJ Performance Nebraska State standings.
“IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars enjoy a well-deserved reputation as a fast, fun and affordable division of race car,” observed Jim Stannard, vice president of operations for IMCA. “They will be a tremendous addition to what is already an outstanding weekly race program at Eagle.”
