The 2014 International Hot Rod Association™ (IHRA) season officially kicks off later this
month when the best and brightest stars of the IHRA make their annual stop at Immokalee Regional
Raceway for race one of the 2014 Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL.
Immokalee Regional Raceway has become home to one of the most popular racer events on the IHRA
calendar as track operator Ralph Hester rolls out the red carpet for IHRA's best racers for two
full days of drag racing action. Its location in southern Florida is one major draw, but it is
Hester's hospitality that keeps the racers coming back year after year.
"We are already preparing for this great event. We are getting the big tent put up now and we
welcome racers with open arms for a great weekend capped off with a huge party Saturday night,"
Hester said. "We are looking forward to seeing all of our good friends and having another great
race. We had a good crowd last year and we can't wait to see everyone out again this year."
This completely open Wild Card event will feature racers from multiple IHRA Summit Pro-Am Tour
divisions as racers can count this race as an in-division claim regardless of home division. This
classification has led to several great races over the years as the best racers in the south - and
some from the north - battle it out in one of the first official races of the 2014 season.
The first official IHRA race of the 2014 season will get underway on Saturday, February 1 with the
first of two separate Summit Pro-Am Tour races. Racing gets underway both days at 9 a.m. with a
huge racer party scheduled for Saturday night following final eliminations.
Gates will open on Friday, January 31 for parking with the first tires hitting the pavement Friday
evening for a test and tune.
Following the Summit Pro-Am event, Immokalee Regional Raceway will continue its busy season with
the very first event on the all-new Sonic Rush Tour March 15. The Summit Pro-Am Tour will continue
its season February 28-March 2 with a stop at Carolina Dragway.
