Summit Tournament Of Champions

 

The $100,000 Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions is the sport's first nationwide tournament to determine the champions in each of the premier sportsman classes in IHRA competition. Debuting in 2009, the Summit Tournament of Champions has grown exponentially over the past few years and with the recent partnership with automotive retailer Summit Racing Equipment, the Summit Tournament of Champions continues to grow at a rapid rate and hold its place as the nation's premier sportsman event.

The rules are simple - finish in the top three in your respective Summit Pro-Am division and you qualify for the year-end championship tournament. Once there, all qualified drivers in their respective classes will go head-to-head for the world championship with the winner being determined on the track and not by out-traveling the competition. This revolutionary format not only reduces costs financially for IHRA racers, but it rewards all drivers who have had a successful year with a level playing field where location and finances do not matter in determining the world champions and the national top 10 in Top Sportsman, Top Dragster, Super Stock, Stock, Quick Rod, Super Rod, Hot Rod and Junior Dragster.

This format gives regional racers an opportunity to be further rewarded for a top three finish on the Summit Pro-Am divisional level by moving on to the exclusive championship event.

The world championship race will consist of a true cross section of the best drivers from every region of the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia that IHRA visits. All of these winners will meet during the IHRA World Finals to battle it out in head-to-head competition. The world championship can now be decided on the track and not by where you live or the costs associated with racing.

 

PARTICIPANT GUIDELINES

1) The competitors in TS, TD, QR,SR, HR, SS and ST can qualify for the Summit Tournament of Champions race by winning a Summit Pro-Am division championship or by finishing 2nd or 3rd in your Summit Pro-Am division. Master and Advanced Summit Pro Am Jr. Dragster racers must finish in the top two in points in their respective division. Once there, all qualified Jr. Dragster drivers will compete in one in class head-to-head for the Summit TOC World Championship.

2) The first round ladder will be generated using only the drivers that show up to compete at the IHRA World Finals. Example: If 20 drivers show up in Hot Rod, then a 20-car ladder will be created.

3) The competitors will be run on a sportsman ladder generated based on reaction time from qualifying. If there is a bye run, it will go to the best reaction time from qualifying. Lane choice for all rounds is based upon best reaction time.

4) A competitor may compete in the Summit Tournament of Champions in a maximum of TWO different classes, but may not drive the same car in two classes during the race. If a competitor was to qualify in 3 different classes, the competitors best 2 finishes or highest point totals of the classes would determine the eligibility for the 2 classes.

5) The final national order (World Champion through 10th place) will be determined by head-to-head racing. The winner of the race at the IHRA World Finals will be the national champion, the runner-up will be #2 nationally; the semi-finalists will be #3 and #4 nationally etc. #3 through #10 will be determined by best reaction time when the competitor is eliminated. The end of the year championship payout will be earned by the competitor's finish during the IHRA World Finals. Ties will be broken by best package.

6) The Summit Tournament of Champions race will be contested on the 1/4 mile for big cars and 1/8 mile for Junior Dragster.

7) The Summit Tournament of Champions race in Top Dragster and Top Sportsman will follow the 1/4 mile Nitro Jam format and rules (wing requirement at 200 mph, maximum dial requirement of 7.60 for TD and 7.80 for TS, etc).
