WHAT THEY ARE SAYING: “I think if we singled out the tracks that racers most look forward to racing at, U.S. 131 Motorsports Park would be among the top two or three. It is such a wonderful facility and a great track that is conducive to some fast times and great racing,” said Jon O’Neal, IHRA Division Director. “Time is running out for drivers to make a push for the TOC so I think you will see a lot of drivers out giving it their all in Martin trying to those last few points before we head to Memphis in October. It should be a great race and a great show and I look forward to seeing everyone out this weekend.”

ROAD TO THE TOC: In 2013 the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL is now the only road to the year-end Summit Racing Tournament of Champions showdown in Memphis. Only the top three in each class within each division on the Summit Pro-Am Tour will advance to the championship tournament in October to runoff for the 2013 Summit World Championships and $10,000!
