Penwell Knights Raceway to Host IHRA Sportsman Spectacular Opener Next Month

Tuesday, 13 February 2024

ODESSA, Texas — Big opportunities await racers when the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering and FuelTech gets off to a roaring start in the Lone Star State next month. 

Penwell Knights Raceway will host the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular opener March 16. Racers in Box, No Box, Sportsman, Motorcycle and Junior Dragster classes will compete for prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies and the very popular oversized championship checks. IHRA members will also be in the running for limited-edition Sportsman Spectacular commemorative medals.

Racers can also gain entry to the IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals presented by Strange Engineering by winning the main event in one of the aforementioned classes in conjunction with entering at least two other IHRA races (an IHRA-member track Summit SuperSeries team race or Sportsman Spectacular) before the IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals. Current IHRA membership is required. OTI copy

The race features $1,500-to-win races for the Box and No Box classes with the chance to “Double Down” and win added purse money. See the flyer for more details as each event is tailored to the host track’s racing programs. 


OTI Electrical Services is sponsoring the Box class, while Hughes Oil Field Transportation is the sponsor of the No Box class. Ignition Service and Supply serves as the sponsor for the Junior Dragsters.
