Weather and Track Surface Repairs Force Postponement of IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular at Darlington Dragway
WEST PALM BEACH- Fla.- Officials with the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) and Darlington Dragway have postponed the May 25-27 IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular event due to the forecast of rain for the weekend and track surface repairs, the sanctioning body announced today.
The new date of the IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular will be October 12-14.
 
The Hartsville, S.C. track had a new racing surface put in over the winter and needed some surface work in order to allow rubber to lay down properly and be safe for competitors.
 
“While it wouldn’t be a huge process to get done, we have had numerous days of rain and more coming which isn’t an enough time to get the track in proper racing condition,” Jimmy Bradshaw, Darlington Dragway general manager said. “Our goal is to have racers put on an exciting show on the safest track possible.” 
 
“Jimmy Bradshaw and his team always provide a great facility to host an event. When talking with Jimmy this week, we collectively decided that it was best to postpone the event based on the forecast and current track repairs,” IHRA Division 2 & 9 Director Josh Peake said. “The group at Darlington Dragway keeps the racers best interest in mind when hosting an event.”
 
Racers who pre-entered for the event should keep their receipts on hand as pre-entries will be honored at the rescheduled date. Pre-entries will be reopened until Monday, October 1. Click here for online registration.
 
The IHRA Summit Sportsman Spectacular will resume with a double-event weekend, June 1-3 at the brand-new Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas.

Paul Beauchamp and the Beauchamp Motorsport team are heading to the 2018 Gulf Western Oils Winternationals with the intentions of getting back on track, and getting in some solid passes with a refreshed setup.
“For qualifying we will be just trying to find a baseline tune to get the car from A to B along with trying to qualify in such a quality field. We’ve taken a good break from the class of Pro Stock, but we’re glad to be making a “comeback” if you would call it that”  Laughs Paul.

“For us It’s all about just working as a team to ensure everything is right on the day and making the most of lining up and dropping the clutch. It is going to be tough especially with so many 6 second capable cars in the class, but that won’t stop us!! At the end of the day we are here just like everyone else to go and run for a 400 Thunder Gold Christmas Tree, although just making it to Raceday will be a bonus on our first meeting back.”

If you’re coming out to the track from June 7-10 make sure you drop in and see the crew and say hi, check the car out and ask some questions. Schedule is to be on track Friday, Saturday and if the stars align Sundayalong with the rest of the Group 1 categories.

WAYNE DALEY AIMS FOR WINNING TO FINISH SEASON.

BRISBANE, QLD. (17/05/2018):, Wayne Daley steered the Diamond T Custom Tool Boxes Dodge to the winner’s circle at Sydney Dragway earlier this month claiming maximum points in the process . Now he and his team are looking to repeat  that dominance of the Pro Stock category at the upcoming Gulf Western Oils Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway June 7-10. 

 

The 2018 season started slowly for Daley, missing the first round due to work commitments, then the second round planned for Melbourne’s Calder Park was cancelled due to track safety concerns. The journey to Adelaide for round three at the Southern Thunder event proved a trying time for the team as they suffered fuel and electrical gremlins all weekend before finishing off by side swiping the safety wall mid track. 

“Going into the Sydney event we weren’t in the Championship hunt, so our thoughts were purely about testing in race conditions,” said Wayne Daley, “but as any racer will tell you, if there’s a chance of turning win lights on all day and taking home a trophy, that’s what you’ll do. We’ve known for a while we have a winning combination, Aaron (Tremayne) from Tremaniac Racing has given us the horsepower, and with his extra guidance at the track we are now getting a good handle on the car set up,” he added.

 

The tale of the times tell the story.

  • Test Session 6.94
  • 1st Round 6.90 Win Over Rick Chilton
  • 2nd Round 6.92 Win over Bruce Leake
  • Final  6.90 Win over Aaron Tremayne
  • All runs being the quickest elapsed time of the session


Looking forward to the season finale at the Winternationals, Daley said “The plan is to continue refining our clutch and chassis set up to apply more of the Tremaniac Power we have under the bonnet, and work towards a fast, but consistent car.  We can’t get on the championship podium this season but it would be nice to consolidate of fourth position with an event win then have a real shot at the 2019 Pro Stock Title. It’s all thanks to Diamond T Custom Tool Boxes for their ongoing support, Peter Wells for getting the car repaired after Adelaide, Tremaniac Racing, and all my hard working crew that keep this car going rounds."
