The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) and Summit Racing Equipment will extend their partnership agreement for multiple years, continuing what has been an extremely successful and long-running team-up.
As the popular Summit SuperSeries, which occurs at almost 100 IHRA-sanctioned tracks with over 8,000 racers annually, enters its 17th season, it will continue to be sponsored by Summit. Looking for a chance to compete in the World Finals for this series Oct. 20-21 at Memphis International Raceway, IHRA Sportsman racers have been frantically gathering points at their local tracks. In the finals, champions from participating IHRA tracks will race in Top ET, Mod ET and Junior Dragster divisions against the best Sportsman drivers from North America.
“The Sportsman racer, at every level, has been and will continue to be one of the most important components of the Summit Racing Equipment family,” Summit Motorsports and Events Manager Jim Greenleaf said. “We are proud to support the men, women and kids who gather at their local IHRA tracks to participate in the Summit SuperSeries. It is a great feeling for us to see champions from all over North America show up at Memphis for the Summit World Finals to race head-to head for an IHRA World Championship.
“It takes the entire family of racers, member tracks, and support staff working together with Summit Racing Equipment to move the Sportsman racing component of IHRA Drag Racing to the incredible level of support and enthusiasm we have today. We are proud to continue our efforts in this successful program.”
“The partnership between the IHRA and Summit Racing Equipment goes back two decades,” IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco added. “They are a part of the IHRA family and we’re thrilled for their continued support of our Sportsman racing programs. Our Sportsman racers are the backbone of our company and Summit continues to help us grow that program.”
