Wednesday, 14 June 2023

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — The excitement ramped up at Pacemakers Outlaw Motorsports Park last Saturday with the track hosting the IHRA Ironman Classic.

It was part of a weekend which offered IHRA Summit SuperSeries points as well as hosting a North vs. South UMTR Stick Shift Race. The IHRA Ironman Classic is designed to create extra excitement in their bracket program and offer competitors a chance to win the prestigious Ironman.

Saturday’s race served that purpose as Brian Fleenor, a long-time IHRA racer, earned his first Ironman trophy by defeating Adam Wolfe in the Top ET (Box) final.

Jamie Vernon, a hometown racer from Mt. Vernon, has raced at Pacemakers for over 30 years. He was rewarded with the Mod (No Box) Ironman after beating Andrew Adkins in the final round.
