New IHRA Member Track in Indiana



WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. --

The International Hot Rod Association announces that the historic Bunker Hill Dragstrip has signed a multi-year sanctioning agreement. Bunker Hill becomes an IHRA member track.

Founded in 1956 and located in Bunker Hill, Indiana, it is the oldest continuously running drag strip in the Hoosier State. The 23-acre property, owned and operated by Adam and Stacey Confer, features a full-service restaurant and an eighth-of-a-mile asphalt drag strip.

"The history that surrounds Bunker Hill is immense," said IHRA Division Director Jon O'Neal. "The Confer family has a strong business background and a life's worth of racing experience. We are pleased that they decided to join the IHRA family of great drag strips across the country."

Adam Confer is a racer at heart. He worked as a crew member on his father's 1966 Chevelle and later competed as a driver in his own 1967 Camaro. It gives him an appreciation for the IHRA's commitment to the grassroots, Sportsman racers.

"I am excited about what IHRA brings to the Sportsman racer and look forward to being a part of that. IHRA, with what they do, their actions speak volumes," Confer said. "Their new partnership with ESPN is an example of that. IHRA does an amazing job with the grassroots racers."

It's an exciting new era for Bunker Hill with its ongoing facility and equipment improvements. They include improvements to the timing system, track prep equipment and safety equipment. Racers and spectators can expect to see ongoing improvements at this historic facility.

There is a full schedule of events in 2017 featuring 12 races for the IHRA Summit SuperSeries. The Bunker Hill Dragstrip season begins Saturday, March 25 with a Test and Tune. For more information, please go to www.bunkerhillrace.com.
