IHRA Excited for the Inaugural Nitro Jam Nationals at Spokane County Raceway

NORWALK, Ohio (June 29, 2015) - The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Nitro Jam tour will make their presence known for the first time in the western half of the United States next weekend. The Nitro Jam Nationals presented by Good Vibrations is scheduled for July 10 - 11 at Spokane County Raceway, located in Airway Heights, Washington.

Not since the mid-1980s has Spokane County Raceway played such a pivotal role in hosting a national drag racing championship as it will with the IHRA's Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series. The two-day event will feature professional competition in a number of fan-favorite classes including AMSOIL Nitro Funny Car presented by Aeromotive , Nitro Harley, Jet Dragster and, special to this event, Blown Alcohol Thunder and Pro Alcohol Funny Car. All of that will take place in addition to a full weekend of sportsman competition.

 

"We are excited about heading to Spokane County Raceway next weekend," stated Scott Gardner, President of IHRA. "Spokane is a great track with a dedicated racer base and a facility that is second-to-none in the northwest," Gardner continued. "We're looking forward to introducing the Nitro Jam tour to the West Coast fans and racers. There's no doubt this event is going to feature some of the best drivers in the world and offer nonstop excitement."

Over the past two decades, the IHRA has made major headway in bringing its motorsports programs to the world. Currently, the IHRA sanctions more than 100 facilities in 31 states, five Canadian Provinces and five countries. With the addition of Nitro Jam at Spokane County Raceway, the IHRA hopes to see even more growth in an area of the country that its presence is currently not strongly felt.

Spokane County Raceway was founded in 1974 and features a quarter-mile drag strip, a paved oval, road course, mud drags and more. Spokane County, which owns the 315-acre facility, purchased the track in 2008.
