VINTON, IA (December 13, 1998) - A dozen dates are filled in the tentative NAPA Winner Series schedule for 1999. I.M.C.A. stock cars will run at 11 different tracks during the course of the series.

The Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Ia., is the site for two NAPA events, with the other 10 slated at tracks in Iowa and South Dakota.

"This looks like another great series schedule," said Kirk Niehouse, I.M.C.A. stock car and hobby stock director. "We can look forward to races at a lot of tracks that have hosted NAPA races in the past and have strong traditions in the stock car division. This is as impressive a schedule for this series that we've seen."

The first race of the 1999 series is scheduled for Tuesday, May 18, at the Audubon Speedway. The Benton County Speedway in Vinton is set to host the Thursday, May 27, show. I.M.C.A. stock cars in the NAPA Winner Series and I.M.C.A. late models running in the Deery Brothers Summer Series top the Memorial Day program at the Marshalltown Speedway on Monday, May


The series makes its first stop at Webster City Thursday, June 10, before traveling to the Stuart Speed-way Tuesday, June 22.

July has three NAPA events on tap, beginning with a Monday, July 5, trip to the Interstate Speedway in Jefferson, S.D.

"Interstate Speedway hosted the first-ever series race for I.M.C.A. stock cars held in South Dakota last season and the fans there were much impressed," Niehouse said. "I'm pleased the series will be going back there again in 1999."

The Buena Vista Raceway at Alta hosts the Thursday, July 15, NAPA show with the next series race one week later, July 22, at the Greenbelt Speedway in Eldora.

Drivers will race Thursday, August 12, at the Hancock County Speedway in Britt. They'll get a day to rest up for the traditional State Fair event Saturday, August14, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Speedway in Des Moines.

Another traditional date is on the calendar for Saturday, September18, when the NAPA Winner Series heads to the Shelby County Speedway in Harlan - home of the annual Tiny Lund Memorial.

The 1999 series is set to end Saturday, September 25, with the second appearance of the year at the Webster City track.

"There's a real good mixture of distances on this schedule again. Four of these tracks are quarter-miles, three are half-miles and the other four are 3/8- or 4/10-miles," said Niehouse. "And the schedule might include two more dates, with another race at Britt and one at the Arlington (Mn.) Raceway. We'll announce any additions or date changes as soon as they are made."
