Our home track is going into its second year this spring after a rough and dipappointing year....car count,fans,and ugly rumors.We had a 2005 drivers meeting this past weekend ans learned that the mods will not be IMCA sanctioned for 2005.Although they will be running the mods there will be no IMCA points due to IMCA sanctioning cost.My question to yall is are your mods sanctioned with a series or strickly enforced by track.Herd people on here before mention Amods & bmods are these sanctioned or not?

The tracks I race at are not IMCA sanctioned but run IMCA rules. Except some of the tracks have no engine claim and others have an engine swap rule, besides that they are strictly IMCA.

Here around the Kansas Citty area we run mostly A-mods. B-mods are getting fewer and fewer. The tracks that I run at are non-scantioned with very little tech. We are based on IMCA but throw out most of the BS rules: beadlocks allowed any corner, no panhard bar rule, 8" spoiler, and no claims. The cars are fast and the stands are packed. Average car count is 35 to 40 cars, with some nights at one track having over 50. Pay is $500 at one, $600 at another, and $800 best pay. IMCA can kiss off as far as I care.

I'd worry about a track that isn't running through a sanctioning body being current on their insurance, something that you might want to check into if your going to run there.

Surprised to hear you guys arent sanctioned.I understand the insureance concern but my biggest concern was car count and how many racers are acually 'point chasers' we were getting alot of out of towners who were in for the points,but i guess there are those too that really dont care about points.

both tracks i run at are not sanctioned but run rules adopted from imca. they are the same with very few exceptions.
i like it and the car counts ar very good at both tracks. regular weekly mod counts at both are anywhere from 30 to 40 mods.

dont worry, the true racers will race and the rest will sit on the porch and pout!!!

We primarily have UMP and one unsanctioned on IMCA tires with no claim.

What we have are escalating engine costs with little or no rules enforcement.

I would love to IMCA or something other than UMP come in.

But the ones with the bucks cry and moan and want to do nothing more than spend more money on engines and that overpriced excuse for a tire that UMP has us on.
