first_imgOne hundred and thirty-five different drivers from 25 states and two Canadian provinces have taken the green flag in the All-Star feature since the inaugural invi­tational in 2004.  “About 80 percent of our daily business is racing. Every year we continue to grow and I believe it is because of our relationship with IMCA and the thousands of customers involved with IMCA across the United States and Canada,” Fagen continued. “We have tried to do things right, build a good product at a fair price, deliver what we sell and stand behind what we sell. We have built a good relationship with Brett Root and his staff at IMCA along with many car owners, drivers, crews, promoters and the racing industry suppliers. We have sup­plied our products to hundreds of track, series and national champions every year, and I look forward to every year with IMCA.” “There are many layers to this program, but we are most proud to work with Pat and his staff at promoting the Fast Shafts All Star Invitational,” commented IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “It is truly a bucket list event, both for the participants as well as their families and one of the marquee events in all of dirt track rac­ing.” And all Modified, Late Model, Stock Car, Hobby Stock, Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod track and/or state champions attending the IMCA national banquet in November receive two $25 product certifi­cates. DES MOINES, Iowa – Axle Exchange returns this season as title sponsor for one of IMCA’s premier Modifed events. Information about Axle Exchange products and services is available at the www.fastshafts.com website, by calling 800 622-6617 and on Facebook.center_img “How time flies … in 1976 when I was working for Tom Spagnola Sr., I met (Boone Speedway promoter) Robert Lawton and thought ‘This guy is crazy.’ About 20 years ago in the pits at Boone, Lawty told me I needed IMCA. I followed this crazy man’s advice and became an IMCA sponsor in 2002. It was probably one of the best decisions I have ever made,” said Fast Shafts President Pat Fagen. Axle Exchange has also renewed its role in national decal programs for the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod and Smiley’s Racing Products Southern SportMod divisions. Drivers in all three of those divisions must display two Fast Shafts decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares.  The Des Moines, Iowa, company again provides a portion of the purse paid to the 30 starters in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, to be held Sept. 6 at Boone Speedway during the IMCA Speedway Motors Su­per Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Axle Exchange has sponsored that event since 2006. Each All-Star receives a free custom Velocita fire suit and a mini replica driveshaft from Axle Ex­change, manufacturer of the Fast Shafts brand of drive shafts and a 17-year IMCA sponsor. last_img read more

first_imgGovernment has deferred the deadline for bringing legislation to govern the scrap metal trade to the National Assembly, to next year.This was revealed during the second day of consideration of the Budget 2019 estimates when Business Minister Dominic Gaskin was questioned about allocations to various agencies under the Ministry.He was previously optimistic of bringing the scrap metal legislation to the House by this year end, following much back and forth after the trade was halted by Government.The ban was temporarily lifted in February 2017, after it was imposed in JuneBusiness Minister Dominic Gaskin2015. The Business Minister revealed in September that Government would be reopening the trade of scrap metal for three-month stints at a time until the relevant legislation was tabled. In June 2018, he had said that the new legislation was taken to the Cabinet and approved at that level. The next step, he had noted, would have been to approach the National Assembly.“Hopefully, before the end of the year, we will have a new legislation.  We will have a new software system that we are using, and we will have a Board of Directors to oversee the scrap metal unit, and I believe we’ll have something firm and solid in place to regulate the scrap metal industry,” Gaskin had told the media earlier this year.However, following that declaration, the legislation was finalised in the Attorney General’s Chambers and has since been awaiting passage in the National Assembly. Government had approved a restart of the scrap metal trade in Guyana during February 2017 after closing down the industry one year prior to that.The main reason for this was to allow exporters to ship out the existing stock over a limited period of three months, to ensure that there was no pile-up of these materials. However, in April 2018, after several months of delays, Government decided to reopen the trade to facilitate the clearance of some of the accumulated scrap metal across the country.While a date for the full resumption of the trade had not been announced, Gaskin had told this publication that the date depended on several important factors.The Minister disclosed that a meeting was held with exporters and dealers to introduce them to a new system that the Business Ministry was trying to implement.According to him, it is a software-based system that was specially designed to help the Ministry to monitor and regulate the trade once it resumed, creating a level playing field for all.Gaskin said the resumption of the trade would give the Ministry the opportunity to test the system to ensure that it was working and would also help to clear some of the accumulated scrap metal that has been legitimately acquired from some of the exporters or dealers’ yards.It was after a forensic audit conducted by the Scrap Metal Unit (SMU) that Government had removed the responsibility for the trade from the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) to the Business Ministry.last_img read more
