WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - It's just one month away when the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit Sportsman Spectacular debuts with events in North Carolina and Texas.


The double-race weekend for the IHRA's new bracket racing program is scheduled for March 9-11, 2018 at Farmington Dragway in Mocksville, N.C., and Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas. The greatest value comes for anyone who pre-enters one of these events.

All pre-entered racers will get a buy one / get one free offer to help kick off our 2018 season. When you pre-enter and buy an entry for Saturday's race, you will get a free entry for Sunday's race. Online pre-entries are available at IHRA.com through Feb. 26, 2018. Click here for online registration.

On-site entry fees are $150 for Saturday with a $10,000-to-win payout, $2,000 for the runner-up, $1,000 for the semifinals, and $100 per round starting with Round 3 winners. For Sunday, entry fees are $100 (for anyone not pre-entered) with a $5,000-to-win payout, $1,000 for the runner-up, $500 for the semifinals and $100 per round starting with Round 3 winners.

In addition to having the opportunity to get two races for the price of one, the Summit Sportsman Spectacular events feature a set of unique bonus opportunities for all current IHRA Summit SuperSeries racers. There are cash bonuses for the Summit SuperSeries member that goes the furthest in eliminations or wins the event.

There is also a contingency program that is available for all IHRA members who advance to the final two rounds each day. As part of its contingency program, Summit Racing Equipment will now pay for the win, runner-up and semifinal positions.

The weekend program includes a test & tune, racer appreciation cookout and a golf cart race. The race weekend also features several rounds of prizes awarded to the best-losing package of first through third rounds. IHRA Ironman trophies and large championship checks for event winners will be presented Saturday and Sunday. IHRA partner Imagine That Customs will also award a custom painted one-of-a-kind trophy helmet to one competitor at the end of the weekend.

All valid competition licenses and chassis certifications will be honored at the Summit Sportsman Spectacular events regardless of sanction. All drivers running 0-6.39 in the 1/8-mile must have an IHRA, NHRA or accepted competition license. A valid chassis certification is required for vehicles running 6.00 or quicker. Chassis certifications and license renewals will be available on site. Competitors obtaining an IHRA license for the first time are encouraged to complete the licensing process through the IHRA membership department prior to the event to ensure all documents are acceptable.
