Gleason Raceway Park Renews IHRA Agreement for 2023

Wednesday, 14 September 2022

HOUSE SPRINGS, Missouri — The decision to join the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) has turned out to be a great fit for Gleason Raceway Park.

The Northwest Tennessee track, formerly known as Tater Town Raceway, was purchased ironically by the Northup family out of Idaho in 2021. They did massive work at the drag strip and decided to run under IHRA sanction in 2022.

It has worked out fabulously to be part of the IHRA Summit SuperSeries program, the largest and most prestigious championship in all of bracket racing.  Gleason Raceway Park is sending a team to compete in the IHRA Division 2 (Heatwave) Summit Team Finals at Holly Springs Motorsports on Sept. 29 through Oct. 2.

Truly a family operation, the track is owned by Rick and Sam Northup, along with Rick’s daughter, Samantha Archabal, and Sam’s son, Christopher. Their hard work has transformed the 1/8-mile drag strip located on 48 acres which had been sitting dormant.

The improvements besides a massive clean-up have included both new timing and new computer systems. Excited about the future, look for IHRA IronMan Classic races at Gleason Raceway Park in 2023 to be announced at a later date.
