Dragway 42 Set to Host IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering in Three Weeks

Wednesday, 01 May 2024

WEST SALEM, OH — Big money, big prizes and even bigger opportunities will be on the line when the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering comes to Dragway 42 on Saturday, May 25.

Racers in Top ET (Box), Mod (No Box), Sportsman, Bike / Sled 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.

There are bigger opportunities as racers can 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. 

It is a return to the historic Ohio track for the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular. Keith Gerlach (Top), Bobby Gill (Mod), AJ Buchanan (Sportsman), Rick Poole (Motorcycle) and Madi Clark (Junior Dragster) earned victories at Dragway 42 in 2023.

Drivers in the Top ET class will compete for a $5,000 winner’s purse and $1,000 for runner-up. The payout is based on 100 entries first round with a $100 entry fee. 

The Mod (No Box) class pays $3,000-to-win and $500 for runner-up. It is based on 80 entries first round with a $75 entry fee. Payouts for Sportsman and Bike / Sled are $500 to win based on 20 first-round entries. 

There are 7.90, 8.90 and 11.90 Junior Dragster classes. There will be a runoff of the winners to determine the overall champion and who earns the trip to the IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Finals.

Gates open at 7:30 a.m. with time trials at 9 a.m. and eliminations to follow. Spectator tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for kids 6-12 and those 5-under admitted free.
