Beacon Dragway to Be Site of IHRA Ironman Classic on Saturday

Monday, 04 September 2023

PADUCAH, Ky. — Beacon Dragway racers have a unique opportunity to have a second chance at winning an IHRA Ironman trophy.

The Paducah, Kentucky track is hosting its second IHRA Ironman Classic of the season on Saturday as drivers compete for big money, big checks and the prestigious Ironman trophies.

Available to all IHRA-member tracks, a racer could previously only win one at a divisional or national event. This gives the local track the ability to create excitement in their bracket program and offer their grassroots, Sportsman racers a chance to win the prestigious Ironman trophy.

Saturday’s races feature $2,000 prizes for the Super Pro (Box) and No Box winners and $500 to the runner-ups. The Sportsman winner receives $750, while the top prize for Junior Dragsters is $500. Ironman trophies are awarded to all four class winners.

The event allows double entries, and buy backs are available. Gates open at 11 a.m. with time trials to start at noon. General admission is $10 for spectators with kids 12-under free.

Track promoter Cody Cherry believes those who have never visited Beacon Dragway are in for a real treat.

They have 85 powered parking spots, over 120 paved spots and the Horsepower Café, a small restaurant with a variety of scrumptious treats. It’s a well-maintained facility that uses LJ1 products to prep the track and it features over a large shutdown area over 2,200 feet.
