2013 Banquet Posted: 03-03-2014
Would like to thank all the drivers and wives and crew that came out to the IMOD banquet last night! I want to say congrats to Brad DeYoung for winning the championship along with his other championships in UMP and at Shady Hill. Also congrats to Tim Sullivan Jr. on his championship in the Summer Series. Was good to see and hear that most are coming back for another year of racing with the IMOD series. Unfortunately due to weather we had to cut the night short so that everyone could get home safely. This year we will move the banquet back to Nov. Wish all the drivers good luck this season in what ever they decide to run this race season!!

IMOD FOR SALE Posted: 01-30-2014
Debating on selling my Imod. Was built in 2008 by Kenny Carlson amazing chassis builder and does amazing work. Chassis #24. Engine and trans were built at Hamilton machine in lake station. Is the best in the area. There was no expense spared in the building of this car. Best of everything and no corners cut. Even opted for zueses on the sides instead of rivets. Car comes complete ready to race. Just installed belts last fall so they're up to date. Also comes with all spare parts in my garage if wanted. Few spare wheels and tires and anything I can dig out.

Just add your sides, numbers and left rear spoiler and go race.
Was asking 7500 But am open to realistic offers. Very fast and well built car. Will not be disappointed.
