“This is the season IHRA fans have been waiting for. We have built a great competitive lineup over the past four years and now is our chance to truly showcase the best racers in drag racing with a return to traditional qualifying and eliminations,” said Larry Crum, IHRA Media and Public Relations Manager. “This year IHRA returns to its roots while retaining its own unique classes and identity.”
Nitro Funny Car leads the way with a dream lineup of the best nostalgia flopper racers in the country. Former champions, extreme characters and legendary cars will fill the lanes for eight spots on the Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series ladder and a shot at a huge championship payout at the end of the season.
Two other classes that have long been a staple of IHRA competition – Nitro Harley and Mountain Motor Pro Stock – will see similar results as each class battles for eight positions and, ultimately, one Ironman trophy at the conclusion of each event.
Wrapping up the lineup will be Nitro Jam’s thrill classes as the amazing Nitro Altereds and the first women of drag racing, the Larsen Motorsports Jet Dragster team, compete for fans and against one another in a fire and nitro show unmatched in drag racing.
Over the next two months IHRA will have exclusive interviews with some of Nitro Jam’s top stars, along with contests, promotions and special social media question and answer sessions leading up to the kick-off of the 2014 Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series season in Tucson, Arizona March 21-22 followed by the biggest Nitro Jam in the United States, the San Antonio Nationals at San Antonio Raceway, March 28-29.
