Wilkesboro (NC) Added To IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular Schedule In 2018

The International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) announced the complete 20-race schedule for the IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular. The historic Wilkesboro Dragway, of Wilkesboro, North Carolina, has been added to the schedule.

The IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular features double-race weekends with increased purses and is said to be affordable for grassroots, bracket-racing competitors who support their local tracks each week.

The opening weekend of races is March 9-11, 2018, at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas and Farmington Dragway in Mocksville, North Carolina. The races feature a $10,000-to-win payout on Saturday and a $5,000-to-win race on Sunday.

There is a national contingency program available to all IHRA members who advance to the final two rounds each day. As part of its contingency program, Summit Racing Equipment will now pay for the winner, runner-up and semifinal positions. There are also cash bonuses for the IHRA Summit SuperSeries member that goes the furthest in eliminations or wins the event.

"We are pleased to finalize the great venues and schedule which will bring grassroots bracket racers their shot to win two races for only a $150 pre-entry," IHRA Vice President Skooter Peaco said. "This new program provides big money races without the big money entry fees. With all the extra features packed into this weekend, especially for IHRA members, these events present a tremendous value."
