Edinburg Motorsports Park Undergoes Big Improvements Ahead of IHRA Ironman Classic

Saturday, 24 February 2024

EDINBURG, Texas — Racers will be treated to big improvements when they come to Edinburg Motorsports Park for the season kickoff with an IHRA Ironman Classic on March 1-2.

A crew from Total Venue Concept did a track profile grind and total track upgrade. They worked to make the drag strip level and smooth for the racers all the way down the quarter-mile prior to the huge racing season coming up at the South Texas facility.

It’s a fun-filled two days of action with Friday headlined by 4.99, 6.0 and 7.0 Index racing with the track to add $300 on top of the buy ins for each class. There is an extra element of excitement with a winner-takes-all format. 


After that gets you fired up, Saturday features unbelievable action with racers competing for IHRA Ironman trophies, double points and winner takes all in five classes — Electronics (Box), No Box, Sportsman, Motorcycle and Junior Dragster. There is also a winner-takes-all race for Electric Vehicles.


With the Electronics class, the track is adding $500 on top of the purse. Edinburg is adding $300 to the No Box, Sportsman and Motorcycle classes. It’s a $100 entry and $50 buy back for these four classes and $50 buy in and $25 buy back for the Junior and EV classes.


In addition, there will be IHRA chassis and membership certification services on site.


Gates open at noon Saturday and a special presentation to the 2023 IHRA Ironman winner will take place at 2 p.m. First round of racing begins at 5 p.m. Costs are $40 for the racers, $15 for spectators each day with kids 12-under admitted free.
