Postponed until July.
Due to inclement weather, the International Hot Rod Association and Maryland International Raceway
have postponed the May 5-7 IHRA Summit Sportsman National Championship event until the weekend of
July 14-16 due to a washout predicted for Friday and unstable weather projections through the rest
of the weekend.
"The format of the event weekend, with a full slate of racing both with the SSNC and Door Wars
program would require a nearly spotless weekend of weather," said Jon O'Neal, IHRA Division
Director. "The margin for error in an event like this is slim. It's a coin flip as to the forecast
and we're not willing to put our racers' time and money on the line for a gamble with a solid
alternate weekend in July."
The Haltech Door Wars presented by Winegardner Auto Group will be run as a one-day show on Sunday.
A full detailed Sunday schedule will be posted this evening at www.racemdir.com.
The next IHRA Summit Sportsman National Championship event is scheduled June 1-4 at State Capitol
Raceway in Baton Rouge, La.
