KINGS MOUNTSAIN, N.C. --
Racers in each of the Quick Rod, Super Rod and Hot Rod classes will have the opportunity to compete in a special eight car shootout to be held on the Friday before the IHRA Pro Am begins. A quarter of the proceeds will benefit God Speed Ministry with the remaining 75% going to the purse. Entry into this special shootout is just $20. Each class will have two qualifying runs, and the eight racers closest to their index will compete for the money. Total payout is determined on the number of entries.
Rules are already in place for the Division 9 season opener at Piedmont Dragway, March 22-24. They
are as follows:
Organizer, Stuart Smith, had this to say about bringing the Rod Shootouts to Division 9: "This is a way of bringing racers closer together with each other and with God Speed Ministry. This will be a fun way to win some extra money and support God Speed as well. We at God Speed thank the entire staff at Piedmont for allowing us to do this race. We will be speaking with the remainder of the Division 9 tracks to work out the details of having this shootout at all D9 races this year."
Smith and God Speed Ministry also wish to thank Division 9 Director Satch Gragg and the entire IHRA staff for supporting this new venture.
"If anyone is interested in sponsoring this event please fill free to contact me by phone, Facebook, email or even at the events before they happen on Friday night," added Smith. "Questions about the Shootout can be directed this way as well. Thanks for supporting this venture of God Speed Ministry and I look forward to seeing everyone at Piedmont."
