IHRA Announces Return Of Pro Stock Competition at Grand Bend, Martin Events

The International Hot Rod Association has announced that Pro Stock will be featured at two of their Nitro Jam events this year.

Pete Berner and the Summit Racing Equipment Team will be among four teams returning to the genesis of Mountain Motor Pro Stocks for the MOPAR Nitro Jam Nationals at the Grand Bend Motorplex in Grand Bend, Ontario, July 19-21 and the CarSafe Northern Nitro Jam presented by Perry Harley-Davidson at U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan, August 9-10.

“The secret is out,” Berner said. “We’re going back to IHRA, and I’m really looking forward to racing again at what used to be home for Mountain Motor Pro Stock. This four-car, Chicago style shootout is sponsored by Summit and I want to thank Jim [Greenleaf], as well as Scooter [Peaco, IHRA Vice President], for their efforts in making this a reality. I know that Pro Stock is a favorite class of many drag racing fans and I hope they are as glad to see us back at IHRA as we are to go back.

“The last time we ran quarter-mile, we set the World Record. With the car and power we have now, we’ve surpassed our eighth-mile time on that record setting run, so depending on the conditions, we might have the opportunity to reset it again.”

Paul Spriet, Grand Bend Motorplex Owner/Operator, said he is also looking forward to seeing Pro Stock return to his facility with the IHRA.
