Bilstein contingencies go to I.M.C.A.
drivers in all seven Modified regions
VINTON, Iowa (March 12) - More than $5,000 in product certificates will be awarded to I.M.C.A. Sunoco Modified drivers this season by Bilstein Shocks.
As a national contingency sponsor for the division again in 2002, Bilstein will give $750 in product certificates to the top three drivers in each of the seven regions for Modifieds.
Each regional champion will receive a $350 certifi-cate, with $250 certificates for the runners-up and $150 certificates to third-place drivers.
No changes have been made in previous program eligibility requirements. Drivers must compete with four Bilstein shocks and display two Bil-stein decals on their race car.
As also in previous seasons, drivers must return the contingency sign-up form - included as part of the decal packet mailed by I.M.C.A. after license applications are processed - by Aug. 1.
In all, certifi-cates valued at $5,250 will be awarded after point standings for the 2002 season become offi-cial.
Based in San Diego, Calif., Bilstein manufactures gas pressure shock absorbers for circle track competitors.
"Bilstein has experienced excellent success with our sign-up contingency program in the past, and will continue to reward drivers participating with their products in 2002," I.M.C.A. Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. "It is important for our Modified drivers to return the sign-up form if they are competing with Bilstein shocks to make themselves eligible"
