Perry Comeaux and Brian Hughes made history as the first winners of the new International Hot Rod
Association (IHRA) Summit Sportsman Spectacular races Saturday at State Capitol Raceway.
Comeaux from Praireville, La., was the winner of Saturday's Moser $10k race. Hughes from Diana,
Texas was the winner of the LaQuinta Inn & Suites $5k race, which was moved up to Saturday night
due to a wet weather forecast.
The IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular was created to produce a double-race weekend with increased
purses that is affordable for grassroots, bracket-racing competitors who support their local tracks
each week. Saturday's action did just that.
Comeaux was presented an IHRA Ironman Trophy and a large championship check for $10,000 for his
efforts. Brad Roberts of Carthage, Texas captured the $2,000 runner-up prize.
Dalton Lummus from China, Texas picked up $700 for his win in the Junior Dragster division. Cole
Walker from Denham Springs, La., got the $200 runner-up prize.
Hughes received a large championship check for $5,000 and an IHRA Ironman Trophy for his winning
efforts on Saturday night. Hughes will also receive a unique custom painted, one-of-a-kind trophy
helmet from IHRA partner Imagine That Customs.
Josh Enroth from Gulfport, Miss., ended up with $1,500 in prize money for finishing runner-up and
earning a semifinal-round bonus.
Trey Gallet from Breaux Bridge, La., received the $700 prize as the Junior Dragster winner as
Lummus was again in the finals, earning $200 as the runner-up. Each of the weekend's runner-up
finishers also received a special IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular medal.
Seth Hyatt captured a $1,000 prize as the highest finishing No Box racer for Saturday. Robbie
Mullins earned the $1,000 bonus as the No Box winner on Saturday night.
In addition, all IHRA members who advanced to the semifinal rounds received bonuses from Summit
Racing Equipment and there were several round-prize winners seen here thanks to the IHRA's great
Racers can sign up for the next IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular event on May 18-20 at Keystone
