Wilkesboro (NC) Dragway Added to the Series Schedule




WEST PALM BEACH, Fla - The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) announced today the complete 20-race schedule for the new IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular. The historic Wilkesboro Dragway, Wilkesboro, N.C., has been added to the schedule.

The IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular will produce a fun double-race weekend with increased purses that is affordable for grassroots, bracket-racing competitors who support their local tracks each week.


The opening weekend of races is March 9-11, 2018 at Xtreme Raceway Park, Ferris, Texas and Farmington Dragway, Mocksville, N.C. The races feature a $10,000-to-win payout on Saturday and a $5,000-to-win race on Sunday.

There is a national contingency program available to 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. In addition, there are cash bonuses for the IHRA Summit SuperSeries member that goes the furthest in eliminations or wins the event.

"We are pleased to finalize the great venues and schedule which will bring grassroots bracket racers their shot to win two races for only a $150 pre-entry," IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco said. "This new program provides big money races without the big money entry fees. With all the extra features packed into this weekend, especially for IHRA members, these events present a tremendous value."

On-site entry fees for the season-opening races 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.

The biggest value comes for racers who pre-enter for the event. All pre-entered competitors 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.

Pre-entries are available until Feb. 26, 2018 for the first two events of the season. Pre-registration will close for all events two weeks prior to each event date. Click here for online registration.
