Team EQ Racers Capture Modified, Stock Car Titles at 2011 IMCA Super Nationals
Team EQ racers Richie Gustin and Sean Johnson captured first place in the Modified and Stock Car divisions at the 2011 IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Cenex.
Gustin led a majority of the laps at the Boone (Iowa) Speedway in the September 10 race to earn $5,700 for the victory to become the highest paid Modified champion in IMCA history.
Utilizing EQ cylinder heads, Gustin's engine was built by Bob Heckt, owner, Heckt Power Products, Dysart, Iowa.
Johnson ran in front from start to finish for his victory in the Stock Car division utilizing the EQ 50cc x 180cc runner heads.
"We congratulate Richie on his record setting performance against a strong field of drivers in the modified division," said Eric Haugland, EQ's national accounts manager. "Sean is a competitive and talented driver who bought our heads for his short block Chevy and did an amazing job against the veteran 30 car field he faced."
EQ is a general sponsor of IMCA racing and in its fifth year as the title sponsor of the EQ Cylinder Heads IMCA Modified Wild West Tour. In addition, EQ provides contingency awards to the opening feature winners in five IMCA divisions during the 2011 season.
As the sponsor of the "Head to Vegas" promotion (contest ends Sept. 30), EQ will provide the grand prize winner with a seven day, six night trip for two to attend IMCA's Duel in the Desert event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in November and a set of high-performance EQ cylinder heads.

There are also multiple second and third-place prizes of IMCA and EQ branded wearables including jackets, hats, sweatshirts and tees.
