NITRO Motorsports Park to Host IHRA Ironman Classic

Monday, 21 August 2023

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — The Ironman Challenge brought to you by M&S Trailer Repairs is coming to Western Canada at NITRO Motorsports Park on Saturday.

The IHRA Ironman Classic is part of three days of racing action at the British Columbia drag strip. Racers will compete for the prestigious IHRA Ironman trophies in the Box, No Box and Junior Dragster classes.

It’s a $100 entry fee for the Box and No Box classes, and a $50 entry fee for the Junior Dragsters.

Besides the great bracket racing from the International Hot Rod Association, there’s also the Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (CMDRA) on track. Gates open Friday at 5 p.m. with $10 for spectators and crew. Kids 12-under and seniors 65-over are admitted free.

NITRO Motorsports Park is well worth visiting, offering beautiful scenery and a 1/4-mile drag strip with a 5/8-mile shutdown area. Both racer friendly and fan friendly, there’s even a small lake stocked with trout and featuring a sandy beach area on property.

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.
