The Summit Sportsman National Championship, a 30-race series featuring 15 double race weekends, kicks off as scheduled on February 3-5 at Immokalee Regional Raceway in Immokalee, Florida.

But there has been a change in the schedule for the second race, which will now be held at one of the IHRA's flagship tracks, Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida, February 10-12.

Palm Beach International Raceway officials also announced a revised schedule for the 2017 points races and Quick Dragster and Doorcar events. The points races will run throughout the year beginning January 28, 2017, will break in late July and August, and the final race will be held on September 9, 2017.

All double bracket points weekends will be eighth-mile races and single bracket points weekends will be quarter-mile races, with Quick Dragster/Doorcar races running the eighth.

The National Championship will be determined using points claims from the best 7 of the first 10 events the racer attends. There will be no longer be "divisions" - competitors will be scored using a national points system. Racers can compete at whatever event they choose without worrying about regional boundaries.

The National Championship concludes September 22-24 at Dragway 42 in West Salem, Ohio.
