Safety equipment such as a roll cage is installed. A $1500 claim rule is in effect.

Drivers

This division is designed for younger drivers, not those that want to get out of late models or modified racing. It's perfect for kids in high school, as there is a minimum age of 14. No one in this division can be licensed to compete in any other IMCA division.
