The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) will celebrate its 50th anniversary for the upcoming 2021 season.
To celebrate this historical achievement, beginning in March, the IHRA will introduce an inductee to the inaugural IHRA Hall of Fame each month. Five legendary professional drivers (Pro Class), five Sportsman drivers and two legends that have greatly contributed to the sanctioning body will be inducted virtually into the newly formed IHRA Hall of Fame housed at IHRA.com.
This comes as welcome news following a harrowing 2020 season.
“Celebrating 50 years is a major accomplishment and one that we at the IHRA are proud of,” IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco said. “Many great people have been involved and contributed to the IHRA from Pro to Sportsman drivers and Legends of the sport. Creating the Hall of Fame allows us the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments made over the course of our 50 years.”
The IHRA will announce additional 50th-anniversary program details so stay tuned in the coming weeks.
