Designed as a championship program for bracket racers around the world, the Summit SuperSeries has crowned nearly two dozen champions and awarded over $1 million in cash and prizes since 2002 and now, through the continued partnership of Summit Racing Equipment,…
the IHRA is pleased to announce a brand new Summit SuperSeries program for Junior Dragster racers beginning with the 2012 racing season.
Nearly identical to the same program that has revolutionized grassroots drag racing, the Summit SuperSeries Junior Dragster World Championship will deliver the same incredible racing as its larger-car counterparts all on the biggest stage of them all at the IHRA World Finals at Memphis International Raceway.
“The Summit Racing SuperSeries is a very successful sportsman program we have built with the IHRA; racers and track operators have really jumped on board with the series. We were excited to expand the Top and Mod classes to 16 car fields in 2011,” said Jim Greenleaf, Summit Racing’s Motorsports and Events Manager. “We discussed opportunities to grow the program and the addition of the Junior Dragster class is a natural fit. These racers are the future of our sport, as we have seen many former Junior drivers as part of the Top and Mod championships.
“The IHRA has put together an incredible prize package for the winner and we’re proud to be able to crown our first IHRA Summit SuperSeries Junior World Champion. It’s going to be a very exciting IHRA Sportsman Finals in Memphis this October.”
The Summit SuperSeries Junior Dragster World Championship is the first and only program to gather the best Junior Dragster racers in the sport and have them compete for an undisputed World Championship. The program will be made up of the 16 best Junior Dragster racers from over 90 IHRA tracks around the globe. The 16 racers, 15 of which will be named at their local Summit Team Finals plus one Wild Card entry, will meet at the IHRA World Finals to race for the first-ever Junior Dragster World Championship in October with over $40,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs.
