IMCA approves stock replacement DART cylinder heads in four divisions

first_img“As the country prepares to re-open, we simply cannot have members unable to get parts they need to complete their race cars and compete at sanctioned events,” he concluded.  The IMCA trademark is required on both EQ and DART cylinder heads. VINTON, Iowa (April 27) – IMCA officials today announced the addition of another stock replacement cylinder head available to drivers in four divisions.  The link to order is https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Dart-IMCA-Approved-Cast-Iron-Small-Block-Chevy-Cylinder-Heads,417725.html?sku=91624360-BARE The DART cylinder head will be allowed in Stock Cars utilizing the 500 carburetor option, as well as Hobby Stock and both Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod divisions. “Obviously, this is a result in part of the coronavirus pandemic, which has slowed down an already delayed supply of the EQ cylinder head. They were behind the eight ball to begin with and COVID-19 has only magnified the problem,” said IMCA President Brett Root. “IMCA has been patient, as have our member drivers, who have expressed concern over the supply of cylinder heads.”  DART cylinder head part no. 91624360-BARE with the IMCA trademark on the end cap is now available exclusively through Speedway Motors. Cost is $299.99.  After extensive research and development regarding the airflow capabilities and performance characteristics of this cylinder head, IMCA has decided to permit another stock replacement cylinder head in addition to the already approved IMCA EQ cylinder head.  “As established in our successful lawsuit against Brzezinski Racing Products, the trademark provides IMCA and our members comfort in knowing they are purchasing the correct engine component,” Root said.last_img read more

NWPL: Five-Star Wins Grace Final Day As Delta, Nasarawa Complete Line-Up

first_imgAfter about five months of intense action that produced diverse outcomes ranging from expected to shocking, the regular season of the Nigeria Women Premier League has come to an end with the final matchday attracting even more attention.The line-up for the season-ending Super Four is now complete while relegation places have also been confirmed as newcomers make a quick return to the lower division.In Group A, the top two teams (Bayelsa Queens and Rivers Angels) had already been decided before the final matchday even as the basement team (Heartland Queens) seemed doomed already, so there was not so much to fight for on Wednesday – save for pride, maybe.However, Ibom Angels did not spare Bayelsa Queens in Uyo as they beat the group leaders 2-0 at the Itam Sports Complex. Midfielder Unyime Johnson got the opening goal in the 24th minute off an Emem Essien assist before Charity Reuben stabbed in her ninth goal of the season ten minutes from time to further cement her place as the highest goal scorer.Abia Angels played out a goalless draw with Sunshine Queens at home in Umuahia to finish the season second to bottom.Meanwhile, FC Robo Queens were on rampage against Heartland Queens, dishing out five unreplied goals. Captain of the side Rasheedat Ajibade – who had emerged champion of a freestyle contest days earlier – showed no mercy as she unleashed a hat-trick in the 7th, 17th and 35th minutes. Monday Gift completed the rout with her brace in the 30th and 80th minutes.Moving to Group B, Delta Queens’ second stanza blitz continued as they thrashed Osun Babes 5-1 in Kwale. It is disturbing that the Omoluabi Queens capitulated in such a humiliating manner knowing that they still had a shot at a Super Four place. But while things fell apart for them, Delta Queens – by virtue of goals difference – rose to the top of the table.The away side started with Anjor Mary putting them ahead but Ijeoma Obi restored parity soon after. Delta Queens got their remaining goals through Rosemary Okezie, who scored twice, Maryann Ezenagu, then an own goal from Rejoice Ikoyo.Nasarawa Amazons who were group leaders for most times in the season will now have to manage second place. A brilliant header from Adejoke Ejalonibu was enough for them to see off Adamawa Queens who also looked poised to pounce on either of the top two positions on final day.Confluence Queens had no hope of progressing but Abibat Agbaji and substitute Lola Phillips still gave them a 2-0 victory over Pelican Stars at home.While Edo Queens – in the presence of Edo State’s Deputy Governor, RT Hon. Phillip Shaibu – enjoyed a 2-0 victory over already-relegated Sa’adatu Amazons at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium. The second half goals were from Regina Out and Vivian Uwandi.Attention now switches to the Super Four which would produce the winner of the 2016/2017 Nigeria Women Premier League season. It has been severally reported that it will take place in Lagos. However, a date is still to be decided.NWPL Matchday 14 ResultsGroup AIbom Angels 2-0 Bayelsa QueensAbia Angels 0-0 Sunshine QueensFC Robo Queens 5-0 Heartland QueensGroup BNasarawa Amazons 1-0 Adamawa QueensDelta Queens 5-1 Osun BabesConfluence Queens 2-0 Pelican StarsEdo Queens 3-0 Saadatu AmazonRelatedAndrew HjulsagerJune 30, 2017Similar postNWPL Matchday 11 Review: Three Away Wins Recorded As Super Four Takes ShapeJuly 13, 2017In “Nigeria”Marco SportielloJune 30, 2017Similar postlast_img read more
