IHRA Ironman Classic Coming to Great Lakes Dragaway in One Week

Thursday, 06 June 2024

UNION GROVE, WI — Great Lakes Dragaway has hosted a multitude of great events over the track’s unmatched history. 

There will be another special event next Sunday, June 16 when the iconic facility nicknamed “The Biggest Little Track in the World” hosts the IHRA Ironman Classic.

This will serve as a points race for the track’s IHRA Summit SuperSeries program and additionally, racers will compete for the prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies. Four drivers — Dion Degnitz (Top), Bob Moeller (Mod), Don Debaere (Street) and Ryder Vehring (Junior) took home IHRA Ironman trophies at Great Lakes Dragaway in 2023.

The IHRA Ironman Classic program is offered to all IHRA member tracks. Prior to this program, a Sportsman racer could only win an Ironman if they traveled to an IHRA Summit Team Finals, Sportsman Spectacular or World Finals. This program gives local tracks a chance to create extra excitement in their bracket program and offer competitors a chance to win the prestigious Ironman.

The track, the oldest continually operating purpose-built drag strip in the country, maintains one of the busiest schedules of any track around. Track owners Randy Henning and Marcel Kuper have done a fantastic job over the years constantly improving the track, including major renovations in 2022.

More details about the race will be coming soon. Click here to check out the Great Lakes Dragaway Facebook page and keep up with all the latest happenings.
