IHRA Summit SuperSeries Championship Features Impressive Prize Package

Returning for its 13th season in 2014, the Summit Racing Equipment SuperSeries presented by AMSOIL and the Summit Racing Equipment Junior Dragster SuperSeries presented by AMSOIL are once again taking the spotlight.

With one of the most lucrative prize packages in sportsman drag racing today and a racer base that has grown exponentially over the past decade, the 2014 SuperSeries programs will once again award championships in the Top, Mod and Junior Dragster categories in addition to handing out over $240,000 in cash and prizes to racers from all corners of the world at the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment World Finals at Memphis International Raceway the weekend of October 10-11.

And once again, taking center stage this year is the prize package awarded to the winners of the three classes. The Top ET and Junior Dragster champions will both take home brand new dragsters courtesy of TNT Supercars and JR Race Car, while the Mod ET champion will take home a brand new race trailer courtesy of Performax Trailers. Additional prizes will be awarded to all three champions in Memphis. 

In 2014, the SuperSeries championship dragsters will feature an elaborate design provided by Imagine That Customs in conjunction with Summit Racing Equipment and a race-ready setup with parts donated by many of today’s leading racecar parts manufacturers. The Top prize dragster will be built by TNT Supercars based out of Forney, Texas with a 572 big block Chevrolet engine provided by Trick Flow Specialties powering it down the track. The Junior Dragster will be built by JR Race Car based in Greeley, Colorado. The Mod ET champion will take home a brand new custom 26′ trailer from Performax Trailers and a prize package totaling nearly $10,000.

The two turn-key dragsters and race trailer are just part of the amazing prize package that the winners of the Top, Mod and Junior Dragster classes will take home in 2014. Each prize package includes $10,000 for the championships in Top and Mod and $3,000 for winning the championship in Junior Dragster. The packages also include a number of additional prizes, including a week-long vacation package to Aruba, a championship-edition Ironman and champion’s ring.

The Summit SuperSeries is the IHRA’s most prestigious sportsman program designed to reward local bracket racers with an opportunity to compete on the biggest stage in racing. Providing the base for the program are the more than 100 IHRA member tracks in seven divisions. Drivers compete year-round at their local track for an opportunity to represent their home track at the Summit Team Finals. Once at the Team Finals level, drivers then compete against track champions from other IHRA facilities for the right to go to the World Finals and compete for the World Championship in their respective class.

The Summit SuperSeries championship race will take place at Memphis International Raceway during the Summit Racing Equipment World Finals the weekend of October 10-11. The race will be part of a massive race weekend that will include the Summit Tournament of Champions and the finale of the Nitro Jam professional series.
