An appreciative supporter of the IHRA has contributed a prize fund rewarding Division 1 IHRA Super Rod racers during the 2014 IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL season.
“This prize should remain anonymous as it is only about my appreciation for a dedicated and caring organization that has created many great memories for me, my friends and my family,” said the contributor. “All they need to know is that it’s from an appreciative IHRA supporter.”
At each Division 1 Patriots event, a $750 No. 1 Qualifying Bonus will be awarded to Super Rod racers for each race. The qualifying bonus will be awarded to the competitor running closest to the set index without going quicker. Ties will be broken based on best non-red reaction time during the qualifying round.
In addition, the Division 1 Super Rod champion will receive an additional $500 on top of the Summit Racing Equipment championship prize fund.
“It is an amazing feat to donate in this way,” said Jon O’Neal, IHRA Division Director. “To see the appreciation for our organization come in the form of a donation is unprecedented. We are honored and excited to be able to award this ‘secret hero’s’ award to our racers in 2014.”
