Oregon, WI- The newest division at Madison International Speedway now has a new name, the MISfitz. The MISfitz, will replace the Sportsman division on Friday Nights at ‘Wisconsin’s Fastest Half Mile’ starting in 2019. The division will have an established time of 20.000 seconds or 90 MPH per lap, allowing a multitude of racers to partake in the division, including those Sportsman teams that have supported MIS over the past four seasons.
A contest was held on the Madison International Speedway Facebook page, and it came down to Jordan Lamb’s MISfitz and Zach Zimpel’s Wacky Racers. “We thought there were some great ideas for the new name,” commented MIS owner Angie McKarns. “It came down to a tie so we put the two against each other. With MIS right in the name and it’s a division where just about any type of racecar can compete, MISfitz is a great name.”
Under the MISfitz rule package, traditional divisions such as Sportsman, Modifieds, Mid-American, Vintage, Trucks and 602 Late Models can all race one another. A nightly purse of $300 to win and $100 to start has been established and the class will compete for a $3,000 point fund as the second division in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.
The general rule overview is that any stock frame chassis can run any engine combination while a fabricated chassis is limited to the GM 602 Crate Motor only. Furthermore, any carburetor can be used in order to achieve the set time. Any treaded Hoosier Racing Tire which properly mounts on an eight inch wheel showing 1/32” off of new tire depth may be utilized. The American Racer 870 tire will be allowed through the end of June, allowing teams to deplete their stock piles at the start of the season. Body and spoiler rules are fairly wide open and the minimum weights and suspension components are based on the regionally accepted standards. MIS officials felt it was important that teams would not have to change major components which would make them ineligible to run the division the vehicle was originally designed to run in.
Friday night racing action will begin for the MISfitz at Madison International Speedway on Friday May 17, 2019. For additional information visit www.misracing.com or call 608-835-9700.
