  4. IHRA Launches Summit Sportsman Spectacular Series in 2018 WEST PALM BEACH, Fla - With a focus on grassroots Sportsman racing, the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) has partnered with industry leader Summit Racing Equipment to produce 20 Summit Sportsman Spectacular races over 10 double-race weekends in 2018. The Summit Sportsman Spectacular was created to provide a fun double-race weekend with increased purses that are affordable for grassroots bracket-racing competitors who support their local tracks each week. "There are plenty of big-money races currently available for competitors willing to travel and spend $300 to $1,000 per weekend on entry fees," IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco said. "That is not the bracket-racing program we are producing. The Summit Sportsman Spectacular events are designed with the majority of drag racers in mind. Most are looking for a fun and value-oriented event with affordable entry fees and solid payouts." IHRA and Summit Racing Equipment have continually developed Sportsman programs like the successful Summit SuperSeries that create opportunity for the masses. The new program builds on that foundation. "These new events continue that tradition and concentrate on the weekly racers who support their local tracks," Peaco said. "We will have an entry-fee price point that is extremely affordable and offers two events during the weekend." The biggest value comes for anyone who pre-enters for the event online at ihra.com. All pre-entered racers will get a buy one / get one free offer to help kick off our 2018 season. When you pre-enter and buy an entry for Saturday's race, you will get a free entry for Sunday's race. Each IHRA partner track is working on what Saturday's purse will be for their specific event, but all the Sunday events will be at least $5,000-to-win races. In addition to having the opportunity to get two races for the price of one, the Summit Sportsman Spectacular events feature a set of unique bonus opportunities for all current IHRA Summit SuperSeries racers. There is also an event winner, runner-up and semi-finals contingency program that is available for all IHRA members who advance to the final two rounds each day. The weekend program includes a test & tune, racer appreciation cookout and a golf cart race. The race weekend features several rounds of prizes from some of the top name manufacturers. IHRA Ironman trophies and large championship checks for event winners will be presented Saturday and Sunday. IHRA partner Imagine That Customs will also award a custom painted one-of-a-kind trophy helmet to one competitor at each of the 10 weekends. The races will be run as one-eighth mile events and will feature a Box class and a Junior Class. No Box cars are welcome to run and will be run separately down to one remaining No Box car before joining the Box class. The final No Box car will receive a $1,000 bonus. Door Cars and Dragsters will also be run separately in Box for the first four rounds. 11.90 and slower Junior Dragsters will be run separately down to one remaining vehicle before joining the rest of the Junior category. The Summit Sportsman Spectacular is also unique in that there will be no double entries. "If a competitor has two different vehicles they are welcome to enter them both but our events won't allow racers to enter the same car multiple times" Peaco said. "Allowing multiple entries caters to a select few to create an unfair advantage and that is not what this series is about." "We understand the financial gain that other events receive from allowing this but our program is about creating value and opportunity for bracket racers in different geographical regions who otherwise don't have the chance to participate. That is one reason why we will accept any valid competition license, including NHRA licenses. There are a lot of built-in benefits and bonuses for IHRA members within these races. We encourage racers to become an IHRA members, but you don't have to be an IHRA member to participate." The Summit Sportsman Spectacular events will be organized and administered by IHRA Division Directors Jon O'Neal, Frank Kohutek and Josh Peake while Senior Director of Racing Operations Mike Baker continues to manage technical aspects and tech administration for the new program. The IHRA divisional staff will be on hand at each of the 10 event weekends to handle IHRA membership registration and renewals, tech and race operations in conjunction with the host facility staff. The list of host tracks, event dates, rules and online pre-entry registration will be finalized by November 30th. To become an IHRA member or renew your IHRA membership visit ihra.com.
  5. Summit SuperSeries World Champions Crowned at IHRA Summit World Finals MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Hundreds of International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries track champions, along with Summit Team Finals divisional champions from around the United States and Canada, gathered at Memphis International Raceway on Oct. 19-21 for the IHRA Summit World Finals. Representing nearly 100 IHRA-sanctioned tracks, drivers traveled from all over North America, coming from as far north as Alaska and as far south as Florida, to the largest and most prestigious bracket racing championship in drag racing. The IHRA Summit SuperSeries champions were crowned Saturday in Top (Box), Mod (No Box) and Junior Dragster. The $200,000 program is the championship competition for IHRA member Sportsman racers and more than 8,000 racers compete in the program annually. Tom Gall from Beresford, S.D., won the Top World Championship. Chris Black from Butler, Pa., captured the Mod World Championship. Luke Schwemler from Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada won the Junior Dragster crown. Gall, representing Thunder Valley Dragways, defeated Jerry Cotton from St. John, Ind., in the Top finals by just .0012 of a second. His final package was a 5.059-second run at 134.55 mph against a 5.04 dial-in. His championship bounty included $20,000 from Summit Racing Equipment, a seven-night/eight-day vacation for two on the island of Aruba, a world championship diamond ring, and a world championship Ironman Trophy. "It's the biggest opportunity. Summit does something that's just unheard of," said Gall, whose margin of victory was just .0012 of a second. "To race every weekend and then, you get a chance to do something like this, it just blows your mind. At the World Championship, to be that close, it's how the final should be." Black, representing Quaker City Motorsports Park, had a 6.431-second pass at 100.73 mph against a 6.30 dial-in to claim the Mod World Championship. The final was closely contested as runner-up Travis Loy from Harriman, Tenn., had a slightly quicker, .026 to .028, reaction time. Black also won $20,000 from Summit Racing Equipment, a seven-night/eight-day vacation for two on the island of Aruba, a world championship diamond ring, and of course, a world championship Ironman Trophy. "It's incredible, a day I never thought would happen, even driving down here," Black said. "It's humbling and unreal. You've got the best of the best here. I love all the prizes, but I'm most proud of that Ironman trophy." Schwemler, who earned his spot by winning the Division 5 Team Finals, beat No. 1 qualifier, Nick Ferraro from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., for the Junior Dragster title. Schwemler went down the track in 7.931 seconds at 82.41 mph against a 7.90 dial-in. He was worried that Ferraro, was quicker at the tree with a .060 to .075 reaction time, had beaten him. With the World Championship, the 17-year-old driver won a custom-built JR Race Car Junior Dragster featuring a custom paint scheme from Imagine That Customs, $3,000 from Summit Racing Equipment as well as the world championship Ironman Trophy and diamond ring. "It was a long drive down here, but it was definitely worth it. To win a new race car, that's an awesome prize," said Schwemler, whose home track is the Grand Bend Motorplex. "That last race, I knew I cut a bad light and I was worrying all the way down the track. When I saw that win light, I was cheering in the car." Timmy Rowe from Paris, Ky., representing Mountain Park Dragway, won a 9,000-pound, two-post, car lift from Rad Auto Lifts at the Trick Flow Specialties Racer's Party on Friday night.

Rowland had three wins this season at three different tracks. He won at San Antonio in March, picked up a second win in June at US 131 in Michigan and added the third victory at Memphis in August. Christopher Webb from Four Oaks, N.C., is the new Hot Rod champion. Webb took advantage of a triple-race weekend in Darlington, with a final-round appearance in the Palm Beach make-up race and a win in the Sunday finale. He added another win at Farmington and another runner-up finish at Carolina. Paige Montgomery from Alden, N.Y., had four wins and five final-round appearances over a six-race stretch to capture the JR Race Car Junior Dragster title.
