TOPEKA, Kan. -- Racing action in the Summit Racing Series came to a halt this morning as a result of rain. The rain continued through the afternoon but has stopped, and officials are hoping to resume racing later this evening with final rounds of eliminations in the five racing categories scheduled to begin on Sunday morning.
The event brings the best of the best from around the NHRA West Central Division to battle it out on Heatland Park Topeka's quarter mile dragstrip. Along with a chance at a national championship, there is $15,000 in cash up for grabs to the nearly 700 racers from 19 different racetracks.
In its second year of existence, the Summit Racing Series crowns divisional champions in each of the seven NHRA Divisions who then compete against each other for the National Championship. The Summit Racing National Championship is held in Pomona, Calif. in mid-November during the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals.
