Dragway 42 SSNC Event Update

Wednesday, 23 August 2017

After consulting with Dragway 42 track management and having a lot of competitors ask about the format of the event, the decision has been made to contest the upcoming Summit Sportsman National Championship finals under an 1/8th mile format. 

“The track got a late start on getting open this year and have not had a chance to run a lot of 1/4 mile events yet this season” said IHRA Division Director Jon O’Neal.  “We fielded a lot of questions from racers on the format for the event that were competing at the Empire SSNC in large part because most of our SSNC competitors have never been to this facility since it was completely rebuilt.” 

The top end has not had a chance to be broken in yet as the track has been regularly running mostly 1/8th mile events since they opened.  New GM, Gary Harper, is working hard daily on prepping the top end of the racing surface but there is only one 1/4 mile event on the track's schedule between now and September 22nd.  Making this race 1/8th mile will ensure that our racers have the best possible experience at the final race of the season.

Additionally the track’s fuel pumps have not been installed yet so a Sunoco fuel truck will be on site during the weekend to handle all the fuel needs for our competitors.

The event will kick off Friday September 22nd with Test & Tune from Noon to 6pm followed by a racer appreciation BBQ sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment and IHRA beginning at 7pm.  A complete schedule can be found here:  Dragway 42 Weekend Schedule
