Racers are making their final engine tweaks and show car owners are polishing down their rides, as the Import Drag Racing Circuit (IDRC) season opener is little more than a week away. Auto Club Speedway, in Fontana, California, will again host the first event of the season with drag racing, the InstaFame Car Show, models, music, vendors, food and more. The final IDRC event of 2015 at the same location closed out the season with 400 show cars on display, set against the backdrop of drag races running down the strip from early morning to sunset, and we expect nothing less for April 10, 2016.
As we near the big event, additional class and associate sponsors have come onboard to show their support for the many racers and car enthusiasts. IDRC is excited and proud to work with these supporters:
Garrett by Honeywell steps in as sponsor for the Pro FWD class, one of IDRC’s most popular. Garrett has long been a common name in the forced induction world, evolving from a one-man operation in 1936 to one of the leading turbocharger manufacturers today. Audi, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, Fiat, Ford, Peugeot, Renault, Saab and Volkswagen have each benefited from Garrett products. Beyond street vehicles, Garrett turbochargers helped power numerous CART, World Rally, Le Mans and Pikes Peak racecars.
The Competition Eliminator (10.00 Index) class was recently added to IDRC, due to racer interest in this low-restriction, “run what you brung”-style racing category. Motovicity, one of the nation’s largest performance warehouse distributors, will be sponsoring this exciting new class. Motovicity has grown massively in its short 13 years of operation, proving it to be a powerful and supportive resource for the aftermarket and performance community.
IDRC is also proud to announce the addition of four associate sponsors for this upcoming event, and thanks them for their support.
