FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 2018 IMCA Rule Amendment Response
Boone, IA (November 28, 2017) – After review of the 2018 IMCA rule amendments and discussion with the sanctioning body, we must address the Modified body dimension V as well as Northern Sportmod body dimension U (roof min/max dimension). We have fielded many questions in the past week regarding the release of the new rules. “In the past 32 years we have built many different roof designs for our Modified chassis all of which meet the requirements set forth by the respective sanctioning bodies at the time of manufacture. Unfortunately, we do not receive any forewarning on such rule changes and must react just as our customers do.” commented Kyle Brown, President. Many roofs manufactured prior to this release are slightly short of the new letter V roof minimum dimension.
We are currently working on updating patterns and rebuilding inventory. If you find that your current roof is not to the new minimum specification, we have been informed that it will be enforced accordingly. Anyone in need of the resized roof please contact the shop to get the roof and sail panels ordered to meet the new specifications. Harris Auto Racing has been the leading manufacturer in quality and innovation and will continue to set the standards for the industry. “Legality of our products has always been a priority for Harris Auto Racing and we will continue to build our racecars within the rules provided by the sanctioning bodies.” continued Brown.
If you would like more information or need any clarification on the 2018 rule changes, please contact the IMCA Executive Director of Competition Dave Brenn at 785-307-8482. If he does not answer, leave him a voicemail as he is a busy individual this time of year.
