IHRA Introduces The Summit Sportsman Spectacular
As the racing season comes to a close for the year we look ahead to the IHRA switching to an all-bracket racing format for the first time in the organization's history in 2018. The IHRA will produce both the Summit SuperSeries and the new Summit Sportsman Spectacular programs next season.
The very successful IHRA Summit SuperSeries returns for a 17th season and continue to be the leading bracket racing program for Top, Mod and Junior Dragster competitors in North America. The program is hosted by nearly 100 member tracks and has over 8,000 active and specifically registered participants.
There will be a major change in the IHRA lineup as it moves from the class racing-based Summit Sportsman National Championship series to the newly-created Summit Sportsman Spectacular. The new bracket racing-based program consists of 20 races over ten weekends. Summit Racing Equipment will support the program through a new multi-year sponsorship.
Over time the input from racers, partners, and tracks and resulted in these changes to an all-bracket racing program, and is designed to improve participation levels in IHRA class racing. The new Summit Sportsman Spectacular bracket events will be targeted to Top, Mod and Junior racers looking for a value-oriented and fun double-race weekend. The series will work in conjunction with the Summit SuperSeries to provide tens of thousands of grassroots bracket racers new opportunities and events that are designed to provide maximum value for the participants.
