(OSHKOSH, WI) April 30 – Speedzone Points Clarification
Clarification of Speedzone points system will be as follows, Modified points and Sport Modified points will be set back to zero. Grand National, Street Stock and Dirt Devil points will remain with the 5 extra points for getting their driver info sheets in by the cutoff date. The reason for the change, for the last several years we have not been sanctioned IMCA therefore we could do this. Now that we are sanctioned IMCA for the Sport Mods, there was a misconception that we were going to follow the IMCA points system for all divisions. This was not the case. We were following it for the IMCA Sport Mods only but was not clearly stated. Therefore we will make the amendment for the A Mods and the IMCA Sport Mods all other classes will remain the way with the 5 points.
