California-business WKD Electric is posting a nightly $100 Fast Qualifier bonus for the Sprint Car ranks, while the second annual California IMCA Speedweek is posting a $100 nightly Fast Qualifier bonus for the IMCA Modified racers.

“A major thanks goes out to both WKD Electric and the California IMCA Speedweek for getting behind the cause and sponsoring some extra cash. If a driver sets fast time all three nights, that’s a cool $300 for a handful of quick laps,” event co-promoter Chris Kearns said. “As the event draws closer, I’m truly humbled at all of the support that we have, and I’m also thrilled to see how many fans and drivers are showing excitement for the event.”
