Cocopah Speedway adding IMCA Sport Compact class to it’s lineup in 2020
Mach-1 Sport Compacts become the fourth IMCA sanctioned division to run at Cocopah Speedway, beginning in 2020.
Approximately 25 dates will be scheduled for the 4-cylinder class, with opening night in January.
“We are making the transition this year from a hornet class to sanctioned Sport Compacts and want everyone who plans to build a car that they must be IMCA legal,” explained Cocopah General Manager Brad Whitfield. “I know of about 12 cars being built now.”
Most Sport Compact events at Cocopah will be held on Saturdays, with some Fridays and some two-day shows.
The 2020 schedule is expected to be released around Thanksgiving.
Cocopah currently sanctions the Modified, Hobby Stock and Northern Sport Mod divisions with IMCA.
“Sport Compacts are an affordable division with a set of rules that allows drivers of all ages to be competitive,” Whitfield said. “They are the next step for kids who have raced mini dwarfs and for older drivers who want to go out there and be competitive and have fun in a class they can afford to race.”
