WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Imagine a whole week at an island paradise. Dozens of International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries World Champions don’t have to imagine, they have experienced it courtesy of Around Aruba Tours.

The Aruba vacations are made possible by partnerships with Around Aruba Tours, Driftwood Restaurant, Eagle Aruba Resort & Casino, More 4 Less car rentals and the Don Flip Racing Team.

“The Summit SuperSeries has been the premiere national championship for sportsman bracket racers for the last 20 years thanks in large part to our partners who recognize the importance of keeping the IHRA member track’s weekly bracket program thriving,” IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco said. “The partnership with our friends in Aruba is one of the cornerstones of this program. 

“Fortunately our Aruba host Juan Werleman is a big believer in the bracket racing program and has been involved in putting this program together and expanding the program to include all champions. We can’t thank Juan enough for his hard work and dedication to the program and to making sure our champions have a great experience on the island."

With beautiful sandy beaches, iconic sites, incredible fishing in cool blue water, museums, and art, Aruba has provided a dream destination for IHRA executives, partners, and racers alike.

It was a particularly special trip for 2014 IHRA Top ET World Champion Cody Bayus and wife Lindsay as the newlyweds used the free eight-day/seven-night trip for their honeymoon. After learning of the champion’s newlywed status, the couple was honored with a lavish celebration with dignitaries and racers from the island.

The couple had their days filled with island tours, dinners, and beach activities.
