Show Low's Thunder Raceway sanctions Modifieds with I.M.C.A.
SHOW LOW, Ariz. (Jan. 15) - Promoter Bob Livingston boasted that the Show Low area is a great place to vacation.
I.M.C.A. Sunoco Modified drivers can make plans to visit Livingston's Thunder Raceway and take in a few of the other sites beginning April 27.
"We want to make it affordable for the everyday racer," said Livingston, already fielding calls about the new sanction. "We plan to have two big races this year, including a July 4 event that pays $2,000 to win, and at least 18 regular weekly races during the season. We hope to have more."
Thunder Raceway sports a semi-banked clay oval that's a quarter mile around on the inside and closer to 1/3 mile on the high side. It's 75 feet wide all the way around, providing plenty of room for passing as well as side-by-side racing.
Built in 1995, the facility was purchased by Livingston in 1997. Fifty truckloads of clay were added to the track sur-face early in 2001.
In addition to the I.M.C.A. Modified division, Saturday night programs at the Show Low track include the late model, mini-stock, factory stock and dwarf car classes.
The I.M.C.A. point season runs from April to Sept. 28.
Free camping for racers is available at the track. Thunder Raceway also works with four local hotels in reduced rate accommodations for competitors.
