IMBCS HISTORY OF RACER PARTICIPATION NUMBERS 2003 – 2015…

The following chart and information depicts the 13 year history of IMBCS participation. The two numbers represented in the chart show how many total racer entries there were at IMBCS events for that season, and how many unique racers there were for each season (people that participated in at least one race). The early years did not track series points for Beginner/Novice racers (now known as CAT III). Because of this, the unique racer data numbers are inaccurate until the 2009 season when tracking series points for all categories began.

Chart for IMBCS

The years that included joint IMBCS races with both the Nebraska Psycowpath Series and the Illinois State Championship Race Series contributed to larger overall participation numbers as well as higher unique racer numbers. Weather dictated how many events were successfully held each year which impacted racer turnout and total participation numbers.
