IMCA Sanctioning Pahrump Modifieds
PAHRUMP, Nev. – Pahrump Valley Speedway resumes sanctioning of the IMCA Modified division this season, pairing the open-wheeled class with 13 dates for the West Coast Super Stock Weekly Racing Series.
IMCA Modifieds last ran at Pahrump two years ago; IMCA will administer the super stock series, overseeing points and the point fund. Pahrump is one of three venues hosting tour dates that will crown a track champion.
“We’re glad to have IMCA back. We want to show people that dirt track racing is here to stay,” said promoter Chad Broadhead. “There aren’t a lot of big venues to draw from in this area. We’re doing our best to keep the sport alive and IMCA gives us a better chance of doing that.”
The first Saturday point race of the season is tomorrow night; Season championship night is Sept. 28. A local bomber class will transition this year to the sanctioned IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.
The quarter-mile clay oval was reshaped, with banking added in the first and third turns. It’s now approximately 40 feet wide in the straightaways and 75 feet wide in the turns.
Pahrump will alternate race nights with Mohave Valley Raceway. Programs start at 1 p.m. through March 16, then begin at 7 p.m. for the rest of the year.
Modified points earned at Pahrump apply toward IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Larry Shaw Racing Western Region and Allstar Performance State standings.
