WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) member track Capitol Raceway, Gambrills, Md., has been named the Division 1 Track of the Year.


Capitol Raceway has been one of the top drag strips in the country with many legendary names racing down the track such as Don Garlits, Don Prudhomme, Ronnie Sox, and more. The track was famous for its "King of Kings" Funny Car events. Funny Cars teams throughout the country would attend the race for a winner take all purse.


Cited for growth of the IHRA Summit Superseries and the willingness to listen to the racers is what makes Capitol Raceway the Division 1 Track of the Year.

Track owner Jim "Big Money" Bradshaw is always willing to try new approaches in the racing programs. Through that effort there has been considerable growth of participation in the IHRA Summit SuperSeries with racers at the track.

"Capitol Raceway continues as pioneer in trying new ways to attract racers and fans to the facility," IHRA Division 1, 3, and 5 Director Jon O'Neal said. "Jim is a constant in the pit area during weekends talking to racers and being one on one with his dedicated staff to improve racing and events. His approach is not always conventional, but he has the willingness to go 'outside the box' to try and improve the product he offers to racers."
