CANCELS
2013 RACING SEASON
(Spokane, WA)  
Inland Championship Auto Racing (ICAR) has decided to 
cancel
all scheduled races for 
the 2013 season.  Th
is decision was made in the i
nterest of all parties involved;
Tracks, Promote
rs, 
Racers, F
ans and Sponsors.
ICAR will re
-
evaluate the condition of Late Model racing in 2014 and 
determine if there is a demand as well as 
ample support
for a Touring Super La
te M
odel series
in the 
future
.
There are 23 Late Model / Super Late Mod
el races on 17 weekends
scheduled
within a 35 mile
radius
in 2013
” said Mike VanDinter, co
-
owner of ICAR.  “You will find that 6 dates overlap locally and 
it’s not fair to the racers, fans or sp
onsors to dilute the product.”  He went on the say, “The Late
Model class used to be special, however, when they race
Late Models locally
on a weekly basis
what 
used to be special 
is gone.  
There are so many Late
Model races
locally
we feel that car counts and 
fan attendance will take a hit and that’s not good for the racing industry as whole.”
Co
-
owner, Corey Juhnke also commented
We encourage all Late Model teams to support a track or
series in the inland northwest.  Whoever they chos
e to support, I hope they pledge their allegiance
and support them unconditionally.  The racers have the choice here……. the racers will decide who 
succeeds and who fails.”  
Juhnke
continued
, “There are too many races and not enough race cars to 
go
around.  You can’t run these cars every week, it won’t work.  I hope the track promoters see 
where they are headed and work to change their schedules locally; we have
done our part and
taken 
our five races off the table to help free up some dates.  We had the best schedule
, none of our dates
conflicted
locally
between State Line, 
SCR
nor Ephrata.  
In addition
our schedule was open for all
specialty races in the northwest
.  We
really
had a great schedule
however,
we decided to be an 
a
mbassador
of the sport and do what’s right for all involved
.  We 
wish everyone good luck this year
and look forward to seeing what 2013 brings.”
Juhnke concluded with 
We certainly
appreciate
the
support we
received
from
A
ppleWay Parts Center
as our
headline part
ner for th
e last th
ree years
however 
we would be
doing
disservice
to this gr
eat organization 
asking for
t
heir continued support 
under the current 
conditi
on
of Late Model
racing.  We owe
it to AppleWay to be honest and ethica
and do what
s right by them, and I
m confident we have.
ICAR is a Late Model / Super Late Model series that has b
een sanctioning races in the region for the 
past seven years.  It was the only touring series in the northwest since the LMCS ceased operations a
couple years ago.  There have been ICAR sanctioned races at the following tracks: State
Line
Spe
edway,
ID; Spo
kane County Rac
e
way, WA; Ephrata Raceway Park, WA; Montana Raceway Park,
MT; Mission Valley Speedway, MT.
