Albuquerque Dragway Set to Host IHRA Ironman Classic

Tuesday, 08 August 2023

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — It’s time to rev your engines up as New Mexico’s premier drag racing facility is hosting the IHRA Ironman Classic on Saturday.

The prestigious bracket race comes to Albuquerque Dragway as it part of a 60th anniversary celebration of the historic track. This race is on the heels of Albuquerque Dragway recently hosting the Conquerors of Chaos — New Mexico Nationals for Funny Cars.

Now, the IHRA Ironman Classic focuses on the grassroots, Sportsman racers who support the track’s weekly programs. Racers in five classes — Super Pro (Top), Pro (Mod), Sportsman, Junior Dragster and Motorcycle will compete for the prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies.

Gates open at 4 p.m. and racing will start at 5 p.m. Entry fees are as follows: Top $75, Mod $60, Sportsman $30, Junior Dragster $20, and Motorcycle $60. The cost for spectators is $15. 

The IHRA Ironman Classic program is offered to all IHRA member tracks. Prior to this program, a Sportsman racer could only win an Ironman if they traveled to an IHRA Summit Team Finals, Sportsman Spectacular or World Finals. This program gives local tracks a chance to create extra excitement in their bracket program and offer competitors a chance to win the prestigious Ironman.
