Final Few Days to Pre-Enter Highly Anticipated IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular Debut

Wednesday, 04 April 2018

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — How does a cool $15,000 sound if you win both Saturday and Sunday races at State Capitol Raceway, Port Allen, La?  If you like the sounds of that then don’t miss your chance to take advantage of a great opportunity to pre-enter the highly anticipated season-opening races for the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) new Summit Sportsman Spectacular and receive Sunday’s entry for free.

The double-race weekend for the IHRA’s new exciting bracket racing program is scheduled for April 20-22, 2018 at State Capitol Raceway, Port Allen, La. The races feature huge $10,000-to-win on Saturday and $5,000-to-win on Sunday payouts.

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

The best value is for racers who pre-enter for the event. When you pre-enter and buy an entry for Saturday’s race, you will automatically get a free entry for Sunday’s race.

Pre-entries are available until Monday, April 9, 2018. Click here for online registration.

In addition to having the opportunity to get two races for the price of one, the Summit Sportsman Spectacular events feature a set of unique bonus opportunities for all current IHRA Summit SuperSeries racers. There are cash bonuses for the Summit SuperSeries member that goes the furthest in eliminations or wins the event. 

The national contingency program is also available for all IHRA members who advance to the final two rounds each day. As part of its contingency program, Summit Racing Equipment will now pay for the win, runner-up and semifinal positions.

The weekend program includes a test & tune, racer appreciation cookout and a golf cart race.  The race weekend features several rounds of prizes awarded to the best losing package of first through third rounds. IHRA Ironman trophies and large championship checks for event winners will be presented Saturday and Sunday. Runner-up finishers will receive prestigious medals as part of their prize package.

IHRA partnerImagine That Customs will also award a one-of-a-kind custom painted 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.
