WHAT THEY ARE SAYING: "This race means a lot to Mooresville each year and we are looking forward to seeing all of the great racers and friends. We are so very excited to be hosting the Summit Pro-Am Tour," said G.W. Leazer, Owner and Operator at Mooresville Dragway.

FAST FACTS: Last year's Summit Pro-Am event at Mooresville Dragway was moved to Farmington Dragway because of timing system problems creating one of the first double weekends in Division 9 history. Farmington will host the first true D9 double weekend this year.Three races have been held at Mooresville Dragway over the last five years with five drivers (Mark Payne, David Barr, Greg Slack, Brett Nesbitt, Tracy Robbins) visiting more than one final during that time period. Slack, Nesbitt and Robbins have recorded a win and a runner-up during those three races.

ROAD TO THE TOC: In 2013 the Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL is now the only road to the year-end Summit Racing Tournament of Champions showdown in Memphis. Only the top three in each class within each division on the Summit Pro-Am Tour will advance to the championship tournament in October to runoff for the 2013 Summit World Championships and $10,000!
