IHRA Summit SuperSeries Championship is Underway at Member Tracks
Courtesy of IHRA


After a long winter, many International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Summit SuperSeries races are underway at member tracks and now is the best time to make sure you don't miss your chance to race for the $200,000 Summit SuperSeries World Championship.

Over 10,000 IHRA bracket racers take part in the championship each season. Summit Racing Equipment, the official mail order company of IHRA, sponsors this program for thousands of grassroots racers at nearly 100 IHRA-sanctioned member tracks.

Participating tracks will crown Summit SuperSeries track champions in Top (Box), Mod (No Box) and Junior divisions. Those champions, along with qualified Summit Team Finals champions from each IHRA region, are invited to compete in the IHRA Summit World Finals in Memphis, Tenn., on Oct. 18-20, 2018.

The championship prize package for the Top and Mod Division World Champions is $20,000 to win, an IHRA Gold Card, a World Championship Ironman Trophy, a World Championship diamond ring and a seven-night/eight-day vacation for two to Aruba.

The rest of the points fund is as follows: $7,000 to the runner-up, sixth-round $2,000, fifth-round $1,000, fourth-round $700, third-round $600, second-round $400 and first-round $300.

The Junior Dragster payout last season included a brand-new, turn-key Junior Dragster, plus $3,000 to win. The rest of the point funds is $2,000 for runner-up, sixth-round $1,000, fifth round $800, fourth-round $500, third-round $400, second-round $350 and first round $300.

There is no entry fee for any of the Summit World Finals qualifiers and every participant at the IHRA Summit World Finals gets paid.

Tom Gall (Top; Thunder Valley Dragway), Chris Black (Mod; Quaker City Motorsports Park) and Luke Schwemier (Junior; Grand Bend Motorplex) were the 2017 IHRA Summit SuperSeries World Champions.

"The Summit SuperSeries is the heart and soul of the IHRA and continues to grow in popularity and participation year after year,' IHRA Membership Manager Bobby Carville said.

"It's quite an accomplishment to win your local track point championship, but it becomes so much more prestigious when that championship becomes your invitation to the Summit World Finals and a chance to race the "Best of the Best" in the world! It's an exciting program and we look forward to crowning the 2018 champions October,18-20 at Memphis International Raceway." Carville continued.
