Following a landmark announcement made last month by the International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) announcing the return to traditional drag racing competition and a record championship points fund for Funny Car, the IHRA revealed the preliminary roster of championship drivers slated to compete in 2014 in its Nitro Funny Car class and announced that it has opened the class up to a limited field of competitors.
The field of competitors competing on the 2014 Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series in Nitro Funny Car will include some of the most decorated and successful nostalgia pilots in the sport, accumulating countless championships and major event wins over the past few years. The IHRA also announced that it will open the field up to a limited number of regional racers next season and will feature one fully open field race in July.
The International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) and parent company IRG Sports + Entertainment™ (IRG) have announced that it will be returning to the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show set to be held this weekend, December 12-14, at the Indiana Convention Center.
IHRA and IRG will occupy booth No. 3341 on the main floor with new IHRA President Scott Gardner, IHRA CEO Jason Rittenberry, IHRA Vice-President Skooter Peaco and IHRA Senior Director of Competition Mike Baker all scheduled to be in attendance.
On the heels of several major announcements regarding the 2014 racing season, IHRA Motorsports returns to the incredibly popular PRI show to answer questions regarding the future and direction of the motorsports sanctioning body while at the same time meeting with industry leaders to further enhance the series and its various programs.

The International Hot Rod Association™ is thrilled to announce the addition of Central Illinois Dragway to the IHRA Member Track family.
Located in rural Havana, Illinois, Central Illinois Dragway is one of the longest running dragstrips in the state with continuous drag racing since 1969. Over the past decade the track has undergone a number of renovations under the direction of owner Frank Hutto and track manager Jeff Lasecke including a completely new track surface, a brand new shutdown area and a new return road with more improvements still to come.
Thanks to that dedication to the track and to the racers, Central Illinois Dragway has earned a reputation as one of the most popular racetracks in the area and one the IHRA is proud to welcome to the member track family.
