Monday, 19 February 2018

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Don’t miss your chance to take advantage of a great opportunity to pre-enter the season-opening races for the new International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit Sportsman Spectacular and receive Sunday entry for free.

The opening weekend of races is scheduled for March 9-11, 2018 at Farmington Dragway, Mocksville, N.C. The races feature a $10,000-to-win payout on Saturday and a $5,000-to-win on Sunday.

The IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular was created to provide a fun double-race weekend with increased purses that are affordable for grassroots, bracket racing-competitors who support their local tracks.

Racers who pre-enter for the event get the greatest value. When you pre-enter and buy an entry for Saturday’s race, you will get a free entry for Sunday’s race.

The weekend program includes a test & tune, racer appreciation cookout and a golf cart race.  The race weekend also features several rounds of prizes awarded to the best losing package of first through third rounds.

IHRA partner Imagine That Customs will also award a custom painted one-of-a-kind trophy helmet to one competitor at each of the 10 weekends.

All valid competition licenses and chassis certifications will be honored at the Summit Sportsman Spectacular events regardless of sanction.  All drivers running 0-6.39 in the 1/8-mile must have an IHRA, NHRA or accepted competition license.  A valid chassis certification is required for vehicles running 6.00 or quicker.  Chassis certifications and license renewals will be available on site.  Competitors obtaining an IHRA license for the first time are encouraged to complete the licensing process through the IHRA membership department prior to the event to ensure all documents are acceptable.
