Thursday, 13 July 2023

HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. — Independence Day has passed, but the fireworks haven’t stopped with plenty of tire-squealing, fuel-burning action at IHRA-member tracks across the United States.

Racers are in hot pursuit of IHRA Summit SuperSeries track championships this weekend. There is a IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser and FuelTech scheduled, along with three IHRA Ironman Classics and plenty of other IHRA Summit SuperSeries bracket races at tracks East and West, North and South.

Motor Mile Dragway at Pulaski County Motorsports Park hosts the IHRA Sportsman Spectacular presented by Moser Engineering and FuelTech on Saturday and Division 1 (Patriots) points races also on Sunday. Another Virginia track, Elk Creek Dragway, also has a day of IHRA Summit SuperSeries action on Saturday.

Ozark Raceway Park in Missouri has an IHRA Ironman Classic on Saturday. Beacon Dragway in Kentucky and Ethridge Motorsports Park in Tennessee also hosts Division 2 (Heat Wave) races on Saturday. Gleason Raceway Park has its Division 2 races scheduled Friday night. Arkansas tracks — Centerville Dragway and Newport Raceway Park — are to run Division 2 races on Sunday.


There’s plenty of Division 3 (North Stars) action on Saturday as well. Muncie Dragway in Indiana has ipostponed its IHRA Sportsman Spectacular, but plans a points race that day. Kentucky Dragway has the IHRA Ironman Classic, while three Ohio tracks — Quaker City Motorsports Park, Kuhnle Motorsports Park and KD Motorsports Park — bring fast-paced action to the Buckeye State.

Paris Dragway and Little River Dragway bring plenty of heat to the Lone Star State with great Division 4 (Renegades) racing Saturday. Central Illinois Dragway and Bunker Hill Dragstrip in Indiana provided the rumbling for Division 5 (Thunder) events, also on Saturday.


Onawa Dragway in Iowa has a Division 6 (Midwest) double-points weekend on Saturday and Sunday. The Saturday races feature the IHRA Ironman Classic. The great state of Alabama brings Division 8 (South) racing to life at Baileyton “The Goodtime” Dragstrip and I-22 Motorsports Park. We wrap with Division 9 (Raiders) action at Wilkesboro Dragway in North Carolina’s Brushy Mountains and Pageland Dragway in South Carolina.


Come out and support your IHRA-member tracks at these Summit SuperSeries races and other great racing events this weekend.
