Recommended Posts




NORWALK, Ohio (January 17, 2007) — Drag Race Central, powered by Summit Racing Equipment, will become the first and only Website to provide complete, up-to-the-minute coverage of all 46 IHRA Pro-Am events in 2007. To reflect this groundbreaking race coverage, IHRA has named Drag Race Central the “Official Race Results of IHRA.”




“Our racers have been asking for live coverage at IHRA Pro-Am Events for years, and it’s no surprise to me that Summit Racing Equipment has stepped up to provide this service via Drag Race Central,” Aaron Polburn, IHRA President, said. “The company’s dedication to drag racing has played a major part in the IHRA—from its recent involvement with our Pro-Am Tour to the very successful Summit SuperSeries and Team Finals.”




Posted online at SummitRacing.com, Drag Race Central has been offering in-depth coverage of drag racing news and events since 1998. The Website is known for its up-to-the-minute, round-by-round race coverage, which comes directly from the site of each event. This real-time race reporting makes Drag Race Central a popular site for race fans who don’t want to wait for tape-delayed TV coverage. In addition, Drag Race Central’s race archives make it a great resource for racers who like to track the performance of competitors throughout the season.




“We’ve stepped up our support of sportsman racing with our sponsorship of the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by Mr. Gasket,” Kirk Heinbuch, Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports and Events Manager, said. “Naturally, we also want to give these hard-working sportsman-class racers the coverage they deserve as they battle for divisional and national championships.”




In addition to event coverage, Drag Race Central features racer interviews, breaking news, feature stories, and an extensive array of race photos from the award-winning staff at the Fast News Network. Race fans and drivers can access Drag Race Central by going to SummitRacing.com and clicking on the Drag Race Central icon.




Drag Race Central will offer real-time coverage of both the IHRA Nitro Jam™ Series and Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by Mr. Gasket beginning February 10, at the Division 2 Pro-Am Tour event in Immokalee, Florida.
