I look forward to being my own boss,” said Van Gen­deren, who piloted Modifieds and Stock Cars during his own on-track career. “This is a great community that really supports racing.”  Specials on the 2019 schedule include the April 3 Frostbuster, the inaugural Jake Durbin Memo­rial on May 15, the inaugural Dirt Duel Stock Car Stampede June 11 and 12 and the July 2 Ron Little Memorial.  “Stuart has a very strong IMCA tradition,” said Van Genderen, who completed his purchase of the track in November. “It’s a pretty darn nice facility with good lighting and a beautiful concession stand. It has everything you could want.” Midweek shows will feature IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Mach-1 Sport Compacts. Mike Van Genderen will be in charge of Wednesday night race programs at the Stuart Speedway. Work on reconfiguring the 1/4-mile clay oval has already started and will resume when weather and track conditions permit.  The IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National point season runs from April 17 to Aug. 7. This season will be the 34th consecutive Stuart has been sanctioned with IMCA. Regular race programs last season were held on Friday nights.last_img read more
