PostHeaderIcon Lee County prepares for season with new rules

4-Cylinder owners have changes set forth for 2012 season

DONNELLSON, Iowa (Feb. 10, 2012) – As the 2012 racing season approaches very quickly, many drivers at Lee County Speedway face a lot of changes in their rule package for this season.

Major changes are in store for the Hobby Stocks and 4-cylinders, as both classes will be sanctioned by IMCA during the upcoming season. With that in mind, a few things need to be pointed out to drivers and car owners.

What seems to be a major concern for many IMCA Sport Compact drivers as they prepare for the upcoming season is the lack of a compression rule for the class. The engine rules reads as follows.

18. ENGINE: 3 or 4 cylinder in-line engines only. Double overhead cam recommended. All engine components must be unaltered OEM for year, make and model of car used. Must use OEM crank, rods, valve sizes, stroke, etc. No aftermarket racing heads. No high performance or sports car engines of any kind. No turbo charged, super charged, rotary engines, or engines utilizing variable cam-timing”

PostHeaderIcon Mother Nature thaws ‘Break Ice not Hearts 50’

“When we scheduled this race in mid-December I never dreamed the winter would remain this warm,” LCS promoter Dewain Hulett said, Monday. “For the last several weeks I kept waiting for the weather to turn and get cold enough to make a racetrack we expected to have for this event.
