Penn Can Speedway to Run I.M.C.A. Modifieds New Sanction is First ever for I.M.C.A. in Pennsylvania

Susquehana, PA (January 11, 1999) - The Penn Can Speedway will be the first track in Pennsylvania to run I.M.C.A.-santioned Modifieds.

Located in the extreme northeast corner of the state, the Susquehana track will debut its new division on Friday night, May 14. I.M.C.A. Modified drivers there will be part of the Dirt Works North Eastern Region.

"This is an economical division and it has a standard set of rules. That's what we were really looking for, and after two years of research this is what we decided on," said Reed Miller, co-promoter at Penn Can along with Al Wilcox and Dick Longstreet. "We have had other types of cars in for shows and they just didn't work. There were too many variables with the other divisions."

Penn Can is owned by the Beavan family of Susquehanna. This season will be the third that Miller, Wilcox and Longstreet have promoted there.

The inaugural season for the I.M.C.A. Modifieds at Penn can Speedway is now scheduled to end on September 3.
