Stickler tops 91-car field during

Race For Hope 74 time trials

By Mike Spieker BATESVILLE, Ark. (September 26, 2017)

A stout field of 91 IMCA Modifieds were checked in at Batesville Motor Speedway for the first of five nights of action during the Race For Hope 74. The night began with practice for all competitors and concluded with time trials, which set heat race lineups for the remainder of the week. Kyle Strickler of Mooresville, North Carolina set the overall quick time with a lap of 16.913 seconds, averaging 79.820mph around the high-banked three-eighths mile clay oval. Strickler was the only driver to run a lap in the 16-second bracket. Chris Abelson of Sioux City, IA was second quick with a time of 17.068. Both drivers have locked themselves into Saturday night’s $20,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start main event by virtue of their top-two qualifying efforts. Wednesday through Friday’s program will feature 15 qualifying heat races with a nightly A feature, where the top eight finishers will automatically transfer into Saturday’s main event. On Saturday, the night will be highlighted by the 74-lap, Race For Hope 74 feature. During the race, a mandatory fuel stop will take place on lap 40. Also on the card for Saturday will be the State Race. The fastest car from each state that did not make the main event will race for $1,000-to-win. The Manufacturer's Race will also be $1,000-to-win. The fastest participating manufacturer not locked into the main event will be eligible to compete. Pits open at 3pm, grandstands open at 5:30pm and racing starts at 7pm each night. If you cannot make it to Batesville Motor Speedway, IMCA.tv has you covered with live coverage of all five nights with a Daily or Yearly pass.

Race for hope 74

The MARK AND ARLENE MARTIN HOPE FOR ARKANSAS FOUNDATION
“RACE 4 HOPE ‘74”
Presented by SWEET MANUFACTURING, INC.

NASCAR great, Mark Martin, raced for the first time ever in 1974 at a little dirt track called Independence County Speedway, better known now as the exciting, high-banked oval dirt track, Batesville Motor Speedway.

Forty-three years later, after his Hall of Fame career with NASCAR, Mark has returned to his hometown in Batesville, Arkansas, and with his wife, Arlene, have opened a new chapter in their lives with the intent to help children in need.

Hope for Arkansas, Inc. helps to improve the quality of life for children and families across the state of Arkansas with a strong emphasis in Batesville and Independence County. The goal of the foundation’s efforts is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and families through providing shelter, access to public transportation, education and career and soft skills training.
The foundation is in the beginning stages, so Mark is looking to get it well-known throughout the country. After speaking with Batesville Motor Speedway promoter, Mooney Starr, Mark realized that the IMCA Modified division is the largest group of race cars in the world. So why not have the largest paying race for the IMCA Modifieds and reach people all over the country and have a venue such as the “RACE 4 HOPE “74 to help spread the news about the Hope for Arkansas Foundation.

The “RACE 4 HOPE ’74” will be a five-day IMCA Modified event with a lucrative payback in the seventy-four lap feature event.

The Presenting Sponsor of The Race for Hope “74 will be Randy Sweet of Sweet Manufacturing. Sweet Manufacturing, located in Kalamazoo, MI, was established in 1978 and has played an active role in providing products to Mark Martin during his racing career.
